Other types of insurance

Other than health insurance, there are several other types of insurance you may need when studying in the Netherlands. See the list below to see what best fits your situation.

Liability insurance

You are strongly advised to take out third person liability insurance. Liability insurance will insure you when you cause an accident and somebody is injured, or if you damage someone else’s property. Although this is not mandatory, it is important to be properly insured and avoid potentially high (unwanted) costs. In some cases, liability insurance is already included in your health insurance package. This is also the case in the health insurance company recommended by the AUAS.
