Diners Club

WHO IS INSURED

As a Diners Club cardholder, you are covered by travel insurance 24 hours a day during your trip abroad, anywhere in the world (outside the Slovak Republic and the country of permanent residence).

The duration of any trip abroad may not exceed 90 days. If a trip abroad lasts longer than 90 days, insurance cover is valid for the first 90 days from departing for the trip abroad, including the crossing of the border. Insurance cover ceases at the moment the insured cross the border back into the Slovak Republic from abroad, but no later than upon expiry of 90 days from departing on the trip or upon expiry of the last day of card validity, whichever of the two is first.

The period of cover starts on the first day of the calendar month given as the start of card validity and ends on the last day of the calendar month of card validity. The number of trips abroad during the period of cover is unlimited and the trips do not have to be announced in advance.

Insurance applies to the cardholder and fully to a maximum of 3 accompanying travellers, under the condition that the condition of paying also their costs is satisfied. If the payment card holder is personally not travelling, insurance shall not apply to the accompanying travellers. If an insured event happens to the accompanying travellers, they are entitled to the same scope of insurance cover as the insured Diners Club cardholder. The number of insured events that the insurer will settle for accompanying travellers is limited, however, to just one claim per each fellow traveller. If there are more than three accompanying travellers, the insurer shall reduce the indemnity for each of them proportionate to the ratio of three against the actual number of travellers.

An accompanying traveller is understood as any person for whom the cardholder activated insurance (where the cardholder pays for certain costs of the trip the same as for himself) and who clearly travelled with the cardholder to the same destination point abroad.

In the event of an insured event, indemnity shall be paid out only from one of the payment cards, regardless of how many payment cards with contracted insurance cover the insured was issued with or how many times the insurance was activated.

WHEN ARE YOU INSURED

Insurance is valid only if the insurance was duly activated based on each individual journey. Activation is regarded as: a) use of the payment card of the insured for any payment for goods or services within 60 days before crossing the border

of the Slovak Republic. With this activation only the cardholder is insured, and not the accompanying travellers;

b) payment of any part of the costs for the journey using the card of the insured. This activation applies to insurance of the cardholder and also the accompanying travellers. The payment must document the card number, the date and time of payment, and the name of the cardholder. Travel costs are regarded as:

• costs for transport of the insured and other insured persons associated with a trip abroad, especially payment for flights or airport fees, tickets for the bus, train or any other public transport, boat tickets and the like, also if as part of a trip;

(2)

• payment for or reservation of car rental with the aim of travelling to the destination point outside the territory of the Slovak Republic;

• expenses for accommodation abroad or accommodation booking with confirmation of payment by a Diners Club payment card of the insured, or a binding accommodation booking subject to presentation of proof of this binding reservation using the Diners Club card of the insured. Use of the card at check-in is also regarded as a reservation; • payment for fuel at filling stations on the date the Slovak border is crossed when travelling abroad, this for a car that is

inseparably or partially linked to the beginning of the journey abroad.

When activating insurance before setting off on the journey, insurance cover starts at the moment the you cross the border of the Slovak republic to go abroad, no sooner that on the first day of card validity, however.

If payment of costs by the insured’s card for a trip abroad was made during the course of the journey abroad, insurance cover starts at the moment this payment is made.

HOW TO PROCEED AFTER AN INSURED EVENT

With each loss, it is necessary to secure information about the person liable for the loss.

Medical treatment abroad/premature return to the Slovak Republic (section 4 of the General Terms and Conditions of Insurance)

• The Assistance service will recommend and arrange outpatient treatment for you or transportation and admission to a hospital, depending on the severity of your state of health. It will then settle costs for healthcare to the scope of section VII of the General Terms and Conditions of Insurance.

• With basic outpatient care, some doctors abroad demand payment in cash. You should therefore keep all original copies of doctor’s reports and accounts paid in cash. The costs will be reimbursed to you at the Claims Department of MetLife Europe Insurance Limited after you return to the Slovak Republic. If you are not able to pay these bills, contact the Assistance service.

• Always contact the Assistance service in the event of some demanding outpatient procedures or hospitalisation. If hospitalisation is necessary, you must inform the Assistance service immediately after being admitted to the hospital. If this condition is not fulfilled, the insurance company could reduce the level of insurance benefits.

• The costs of a premature return to the Slovak Republic because of illness or injury will be settled only after the prior consent of the Assistance service.

• The Assistance service centre receives and forwards to family members urgent reports concerning the state of health of the insured.
