To race in an ÖTILLÖ race each person needs to have a valid insurance for Swimrun. ÖTILLÖ has developed a “Swimrun-Athletes-Insurance Program” with a recognized international Insurance Company that cover for single events only or for the entire Swimrun season including the ÖTILLÖ Merit races.
The ÖTILLÖ Swimrun Insurance offers a combined cover of a Personal Accident Insurance, subsidiary Private Liability Insurance and Travel Cancellation Costs & Curtailment Insurance. The Insurance Coverage includes all direct travel to and from the moment the Insured Person(s) starts his/her journey from his/her home address until the day the Insured Person(s) returns to his/her home from the insured event venue.
It will also reimburse for Swimrun events participants fees as well as related travel costs booked through a travel company (incl. Airlines and Railway Companies) up to the maximum limit named in the Confirmation of Cover if you have to cancel your trip to the insured race you have signed up for unforeseen insured events. Insured events are for example death, serious accident, unexpected serious illness or pregnancy complications. Please note that this insurance does not cover any transportation risks (e.g. cancellation, delay, failure).
For insured persons with a permanent residence outside the European economic area, the reimbursement will be paid out wire Swimrun AG. Any bank charges shall be borne by the insured person.
This insurance covers only your own interests and does not include your team mate. However, in case your team mate has to cancel the planned Swimrun event due to e.g. serious accident/injury and/or unexpected serious illness, there is cover given for your own interest if you have no chance to take part in the insured event.
