When planning your next adventure abroad, ensuring you have the right insurance coverage is crucial for peace of mind. Macif, a prominent insurance provider, offers a variety of travel-related covers through its existing insurance contracts, albeit not through dedicated travel insurance policies.
Macif does not provide dedicated travel insurance, but offers various travel-related cover through some of its other insurance contracts. Here are the different types of insurance available and the contracts to which they are linked:
This guarantee is included in the Macif home insurance policy. It covers property damage or bodily injury you may cause to others during your stay abroad, in Europe or internationally.
This cover is available under the Macif motor insurance contract. It offers assistance in the event of breakdown, accident or illness while traveling, including repatriation if necessary.
It is important to note that Macif reimburses medical expenses (medical consultations, medication, hospitalization costs, etc.) as part of its travel assistance coverage only if these expenses are covered by the compulsory French Social Security system.
Macif's health mutual supplements the social security system by reimbursing a portion of medical expenses not covered by the latter. As a result, you're better protected when traveling abroad.
For information, the French social security co-payment corresponds to the portion of medical expenses not reimbursed by compulsory health insurance. This often represents only a small proportion of the costs involved. It is therefore strongly recommended that you take out specific travel insurance to ensure that you are covered as much as possible, thanks to a sufficient ceiling.
We recommend that you consult the specific terms and conditions of the Macif mutual insurance company for details of coverage and reimbursement of medical expenses abroad.
Macif also offers travel assistance as part of its automobile insurance and accident coverage. This covers emergency medical expenses, legal assistance, assistance in the event of loss or theft of documents, and other useful services during your travels.
It is important to note that these guarantees are included in existing Macif contracts and are not dedicated travel insurance contracts. It is advisable to check the details and specific conditions of each contract for exact cover and coverage limits.
However, Macif's travel insurance does not cover theft or loss of luggage, or trip cancellation. These specific guarantees are not included in Macif's travel insurance contracts.
To cover these risks, it is advisable to take out specific travel insurance. These supplementary insurances may be offered by other insurance companies or specialized travel service providers.
In the event of theft or loss of baggage, baggage insurance can reimburse you for the cost of replacing or repairing your personal effects. Trip cancellation insurance protects you in the event of unforeseen cancellation of your trip, enabling you to recover the costs incurred.
As mentioned above, Macif does not specifically provide travel insurance. To benefit from certain coverages, you must therefore subscribe to other contracts, such as home insurance, car insurance, etc. To subscribe to one of these Macif insurances, follow these simple steps:
In all cases, it is advisable to interact with a Macif advisor to obtain precise information on the various underwriting options and coverages available.

The time required to report a claim to Macif may vary depending on the type of insurance and the specific circumstances. It is advisable to declare any claim as soon as possible in order to meet the deadlines set by the insurance company.
The usual reimbursement period also depends on the type of claim and internal claims handling procedures. Macif generally endeavors to process claims as quickly as possible, but it is important to bear in mind that additional time may be required depending on the complexity of the claim.
The rates for Macif's various contracts, such as car insurance, home insurance, etc., can vary according to a number of factors, such as the type of vehicle insured, the value of the insured property, the geographical location, the insured's profile, and so on.
We recommend that you contact a Macif advisor for precise information on the rates and options available for each contract. The advisors will be able to provide you with a personalized quote based on your specific needs, and help you choose the best insurance solution for your situation.
In conclusion, although Macif offers travel-related cover through its main contracts such as auto or home, it is advisable to take out dedicated travel insurance to avoid the complexity of taking out several contracts. This is particularly relevant for non Macif customers.
Dedicated travel insurance offers specific coverage tailored to travelers' needs, with appropriate cover and reimbursement limits. This avoids the complications associated with taking out main policies, and offers a simpler, more effective solution for peace of mind when traveling.
