Our Travel Emergency Service provides expert advice, e.g. on finding the nearest reliable medical clinic. The Travel Emergency Service also assists you in matters relating to invoicing. Be prepared to pay the costs initially, and then apply for compensation at the op.fi service. Visit Pohjola Claim Help to find our partner doctors close to you, whether you are in Finland or abroad.

What does the corporate Traveller's insurance cover?
From the company’s point of view, the best travel insurance is one that can be adopted to the needs of the travelling staff.
- Our Traveller’s insurance covers medical treatment expenses caused by travel illness and travel injury with no upper limit in euros.
- If the insured person is seriously ill or injured, we apply the Consequential Loss Cover to cover the medical transport of the employee to their home country or secondment country, and the travel and accommodation expenses of a replacement
- The evacuation cover includes extra travel and accommodation costs incurred by a natural catastrophe or act of terror.
- Besides travel and accommodation costs, catastrophe cover also includes transport costs for movable property incurred, e.g. by an extensive forest fire or explosion.
You can also complement your traveller’s insurance with
- Cover for Cancellation and Missed or Delayed Departure
- Cover for Daily Allowance, Disability and Death,
- and cover for Assault, Abduction and Crisis Therapy
During secondment travel for your company, you need long-term coverage.
An employee setting out on a secondment trip needs better insurance coverage than one on a shorter business trip. Secondment is based upon an agreement with the employer concerning a long stint of work abroad. The Secondment insurance is valid continuously during the employee’s stay abroad. It also covers holiday travel and short visits to Finland during the secondment. The insurance cover may also be extended to the family of the insured employee.
Secondment travel insurance can be extended to cover health care during the secondment period. Costs for health care include, among other things, annual medical checkups, inoculations, basic dental checkups and routine periodical checkups for children. Secondment insurance policies are tailored to the needs of your personnel.
Be sure to insure your luggage as well
You should complement your travel insurance with luggage insurance to have your own and your employer’s property insured during your trip. We will cover the damage if your computer is stolen, your phone breaks down, or your luggage does not get on your connecting flight. The insurance can be personal or cover the entire family. Payment instruments and securities represent an optional extra cover.
We also recommend the optional Travel Liability and legal expenses travel insurance. The Travel Liability insurance is very useful if, e.g. one of your employees causes personal injury or material damage to a third party while being legally liable in the matter. Legal expenses travel insurance, on the other hand, helps you with legal expenses related to disputed civil cases, criminal cases or non-contentious civil cases.

Business travel with family?
You can buy fixed-term or continuous Private Customer travel insurance for your children and spouse. You can buy these policies conveniently in our webshop.
If you enjoy a few days of leisure during a business trip, be sure to have them covered as well. Corporate Travel Cover covers seven (7) leisure days taken in connection with a business trip.
For longer periods of leisure, it’s a good idea to buy Private Customer travel insurance, available through our web service.
Travel insurance is not valid in risky activities, competitive sports or practicing for competitive sports. You can, however, usually render the insurance valid for such a situation through a separate agreement and payment.
However, other sports and conditioning is covered by travel insurance, meaning you can participate in a running event in a non-competitive category or work out at the hotel gym.
