Rega!! Not health insurance, more like get you to a doctor insurance. Covers medi-vac flights and out of country flihts if you are in a not so developed area (not sure of the details on the latter part). Other than that, Switzerland makes sure you are insured for accidents and medical. I'm going to wait for Neni to come in here and prove this auslander wrong!!
Nope, you're right. I've checked before the AK trip if I need to get some kind of additional coverage for a heliboarding trip in such a remote area besides the normal medical n general insurance to have the worst case covered. Nope. The agent just recommended to become Rega member, which we are anyway.
Rega is a must here IMO. 41$ a year and you know a heli will get you out if shit happens. Even if it's not that
bad of a shit. Been touring BC with a group, a girl twisted her leg badly, knee was done. To get her down the mtn would have been somehow doable but a lot of pain n cumbersome. Rega member? Yep. 1h later the heli fetched her.
Not sure if it's available for non Swiss residents...
