Question Categories


  • What do I get for my membership?

    As a member of the Ansnei community you are able to order local security guards all over the world. You get to tap into the infrastructure of Ansnei, where we help you to protect your loved ones anywhere.

    Your membership covers your whole family, and is a one time insurance.

    Our prices are always fair, and we make sure anyone will be able to feel safe when the need is there. Therefore – as the only security service in the world – we only charge by the hour. This means, that if you ordered a guard for 3 hours, but you will need him for 5, he will stay with you, and you will only be charged for 5. Should it be the other way around, that you ordered for 5 hours, but only needed the guard for 3, then we will only charge you for 3.

  • I ordered 4 guards, but I only need all 4 in the beginning. What do I do?

    You can let one or more guards go at any time you like. You will only pay for the actual hours the guard has worked (though min 2).

  • I want to have guards coming at different times along the day for my event. How do I do that?

    If you have an event starting e.g. at 19:00 PM and ending at 06:00 AM, and you have peak hours from 22:00 PM to 03:00 AM, we would suggest to split the order in two. This could for instance look like this:

    Order two guards from PM 18:30 – 03:15 AM

    Order another two guards from PM 21:30 – 06:15 AM.

    This way you will at any time have two guards at your event, and in the peak hours from 22-03 you will have 4.

  • What is your cancellation policy?

    You can cancel free of charge up to 24 hours before the order should start. In case you cancel less than 24 hours before, there will be a minimum charge of 2 hours for the order.

  • What does it cost to make an order?

    You will pay 1 in local currency to make the order. We use this symbolic payment to verify your credit card on file, and for our IT maintenance.
