  • the cost of appearing before a court abroad
  • counterparty compensation

No small print: when does a legal protection insurance policy pay out, and when does it not?

Your insurance pays out if ...

… your dispute with a neighbour ends up in court.

… you need legal advice in your capacity as an employee (legal protection insurance for employees).

… an online order you have paid for in advance fails to arrive and the dealer refuses to accept responsibility.

… unauthorized persons use your Internet domain, causing you damage.

… you are involved in a legal dispute after a car accident (legal protection insurance for motorists).

… your landlord fails to meet obligations towards you (legal protection insurance for tenants).

Your insurance does not pay out if ...

… you start a legal dispute with your spouse. Disputes between people insured under the same policy are excluded.

… you have deliberately committed a crime.

… the dispute arises before the insurance is concluded or before expiry of the three-month waiting period.
