How to file Baggage Insurance Claims

Baggage Insurance Claims must be notified in writing to the insurer without any delay (within one week). Always make copies of all documents for your own records.

If your baggage gets lost or damaged in transit, please enclose a damage report of the airline. In case of damage to baggage (theft or loss), you must also report the damage to the local police and enclose the police report with your claims notification.

In case of loss of valuable property (e.g. photographic and film equipment) please enclose original invoices of the lost object or a confirmation of loss of your travel organization with your claims notification.
