Search and rescue costs

Like every year, you are enjoying your winter holiday in the Alps. On one of the days you stay at the hotel to enjoy the wellness facilities and your partner heads out to ski. Just before midday, heavy snowfall sets in and the visibility conditions deteriorate. Your partner finally calls: they have lost their bearings and have fallen. With the help of the mountain rescue, your partner is found and transported to the nearest hospital. You don't need to worry about the search and rescue costs, thanks to your Cumulus credit card.
