Travel Insurance Protects You and Your Family

We understand that in the excitement of planning a trip the last thing you want to think about is what could go wrong. But the reality is, unexpected situations can disrupt even the best-planned trips.

That's why it's important to protect you and your family with travel insurance. It's a great way to travel with confidence. You can enjoy your trip knowing you're well protected.

Your coverage can include:

  • Protection in case of medical emergencies - gives you 24/7 access to a global network of health care professionals and emergency assistance
  • Payment of medical expenses not covered under your government health insurance plan
  • Protection in case of trip cancellation or interruption as well as loss of your baggage or personal effects
  • Quick reimbursement of covered expenses

Q: Why do I need travel insurance? If I get sick when I'm traveling, won't our government health plan pay for my medical expenses?

A: Provincial health insurance plans provide only limited coverage for medical treatment and hospital costs outside of Canada. If you are injured or become ill while out of the country, the government plans pay only a portion of your medical bills. You might have to pay substantial medical bills out of your own pocket that could amount to thousands of dollars. That's why it's highly recommended that you purchase travel insurance. Learn how our Insurance offers the most comprehensive coverage.

Q: Will travel insurance pay my expenses if I am away on a trip and am called home for an emergency?

A: Some travel insurance protects you for these situations. If you purchase insurance, it will help pay for your expenses to return home in the event of a covered emergency. There are a number of circumstances that qualify as an emergency (for example the death or serious illness of a family member). The cost of canceling a trip prior to departure can be very expensive, as most trips are non-refundable, especially if you have to cancel just before leaving on your trip. Having to return early from a trip can also be very expensive. Either way, Cancellation & Interruption is very important to protect the financial investment you make in a trip.

Q: I am age 60 or older and I have a few health problems. Is it still possible for me to purchase travel insurance?

A: Unless your health problems are severe, you should be able to purchase travel insurance. You may pay a slightly higher premium for travel insurance, depending on your age and health problems. Your premiums and coverage will be determined according to your answers to medical questions. You may not be covered for pre-existing health conditions you have prior to your departure on your trip. Ask one of our consultants.

Q: When should I purchase my travel insurance?

A: You must purchase your Cancellation & Interruption travel insurance within 48 hours of booking your trip. You can purchase any other coverage before you leave on your trip. Remember to purchase insurance for your entire trip, which includes the day you leave and the day you return.

Q: Why would I need Cancellation & Interruption insurance?

A: Emergencies happen when you least expect it. You could become sick, lose your job or a family member could have a medical emergency. insurance covers you for those circumstances and protects the financial investment you've made in your trip. It also protects you if you need to go back home because of an emergency such as a family member becoming seriously ill at home, while you are away. Please remember - this coverage must be purchased within 48 hours of booking your trip. Ask about our Cancellation and Interruption Insurance.
