Course cancellation insurance

We recommend purchasing cancellation insurance. If you already have travel cost cancellation insurance, course cancellation insurance may be included. If you are unsure, please contact your insurer. 

 

Where can I get insured?
The insurance is managed by an independent firm called Allianz Global Assistance. We therefore ask that you contact Allianz directly with any insurance-specific questions. 

What is covered by the insurance?

The insurance covers costs incurred by cancellation of a course or by inability to attend due to illness or injury. The costs are covered to the amount listed on the policy. In the case of cancellation or failure to show due to illness, a doctor's note is required. If the cancellation is done in advance due to severe illness or injury, the insurance will cover the proportional costs of unused services. Be sure to read the Terms and Conditions before purchasing the insurance in order to understand the insurance conditions.

How much does the insurance cost?

The insurance costs are between 3.5 % and 4.5 % of the price of the course. More specific information is available on the Allianz website.

How does it work?

If you have to de-register your child from the course or if your child becomes unable to attend, you will have to pay the cancellation fees listed in our Terms and Conditions.
Then, you can contact your insurance, which will refund you these fees if you meet the requirements of the policy (e.g. severe illness on the part of the child).

What is the deadline for purchasing insurance? 

You do not need to buy insurance at the same time you register for a course. We recommend purchasing insurance at least 30 days before the course begins. The important thing is that you have insurance before the reason for cancellation occurs. Naturally, you cannot purchase insurance once your child is already feeling ill

Where and how can I purchase insurance?

You can purchase the insurance quickly and easily on the Allianz website.

Sick when the course begins

It is frustrating when a child becomes ill right before the course begins. Illness does not affect all children equally--some are more sensitive than others. One child may withstand a cold without issue, while another may spend a week in bed. Course cancellation insurance is designed for these cases. It will refund you the cancellation costs if your child becomes unable to attend a course due to illness.
