Insurance coverage in Austria

Hello everyone,

Moving abroad requires adequate insurance coverage.

What type of insurance expatriates need the most in Austria: health, house or liability insurance? All of them? Do they come as a package?

Are there other insurance options to consider like critical illness, damage or property insurance?

Is it better to purchase insurance from an expat insurance specialist or from a local insurance provider?

And what about insurance costs?
