Since January 1, 2006 the Air Zermatt Rescue Card in no longer an insurance, it is only a membership.
In return for members’ solidarity and support, Air Zermatt assumes responsibility for the costs of the assistance services (for more details see the enclosed “General Terms and Conditions” on their behalf (as long as a health insurance company, accident insurance or other responsible third party does not partially or fully bear the costs).

Therefore we need to have more information about your health insurance company, accident insurance or other responsible thirds. In addition your insurance has to be valid for abroad – in this particular case – for Switzerland for the rescue operation (copy of your insurance policy or health insurance card). We recommend to take out an insurance for rescue operations with assurance companies such as CORIS AG, EUROP assistance or AXA Winterthur, they’re specialized in rescue operations in the mountains.
