World wide

Exceptional feature for Switzerland:
Due to applicable Swiss bylaws, insurance protection through third party insurance cover is not valid for Swiss citizens in Switzerland. Swiss insurants do however have third party insurance cover where this is taken out exclusively for validity outside Switzerland, e.g. for travelling.

At the earliest the cover starts by receipt online. This presumes that payment is by credit card, paypal or by 
direct debit. 
Should for any reason the bank transaction bank fail, then the cover is deemed null and void from the outset.
The period of insurance is one year.

The policy automatically renews when it is not terminated by giving written notice of cancelation to the VDWS 
or online at least three months prior to the renewal date.

Change of address, bank details, or cancelation of insurance should be online or addressed to:
