F.A.Q - Student


You need advice and information on insurance for your studies or your internship abroad? You’ve come to the right place: At Chapka, we love simple words and clear examples!

We have created a complete FAQ section to help you understand what your Cap Student policy covers, but also, and especially, what it does not cover.

We have therefore banned the insurance jargon to give clear and simple answers to your questions!

Caution: We are responsible for what we say but not for what you understand!

If you have any doubts, don’t hesitate to contact our consultants on +33 1 74 85 50 50 or by email. It is important that you understand what you are covered for, but more importantly, what you’re not covered for!
