Deductible tariffs offer great flexibility – you pay a premium for certain services and will receive a reward if you do not use the service, or if you only use it a few times per year. Go to deductible tariffs (German)

Staying protected on your trip: traveling abroad comes with certain health risks. However, you can minimize some of these risks by getting vaccinated before you leave. Barmer will pay for travel vaccinations up to a value of 100 Euro per policy holder per calendar year. Go to travel vaccinations (German)
