S7 passengers can now add insurance to flight bookings

S7 Airlines and AlfaStrakhovanie insurance company, have launched a joint project. S7 passengers can now easily arrange an extended tourist insurance policy to cover unexpected situations during their trip.

S7 Airlines is the first Russian airline to offer passengers the opportunity to buy an extended insurance policy along with their ticket.

The insurance can be purchased at any stage of the booking process at s7.ru, where the system offers passengers an appropriate policy for the selected trip.

The policy is generated according to the country of stay, duration of stay and age of passengers — and covers virtually any risk in connection with the journey.

The standard insurance policy, effective for the duration of the trip, which was available before, is now supplemented with «Travel» and «Travel-Sport» comprehensive insurance policies.

A «Travel» policy covers medical expenses during your trip, and also provides for reimbursement in case of trip cancellation, for example due to visa denial. In that case the insurance company covers all the expenses of charges and penalties during ticket refund. When you book an international flight, you will be offered a policy meeting the requirements of foreign consulates and embassies for the issue of an entry visa.

A «Travel-Sport» policy, in addition to the benefits of a «Travel» policy, also covers medical expenses during active recreation and sports activities during your trip — from walking to quad biking. This is convenient if you are planning some active winter recreation either in Russia or abroad. During winter, S7 Airlines flies to Europe’s mountain ski resorts — Munich (Germany), Innsbruck (Austria), Chambery (France), Plovdiv (Bulgaria) and Verona (Italy).

Insurance can be issued to any passenger, regardless of age, including children and senior citizens. To buy an insurance policy, passengers are not required to provide any additional information — the policy is generated based on the details specified during the flight booking, and is automatically sent by email together with the itinerary receipt.
