Travel Insurance

Why travel insurance?

Whether you're travelling within Canada or around the world, there are many reasons to protect yourself, your family and travelling companions with travel insurance.

  • You want to be protected in the event of sudden and unforeseen health and medical emergencies while travelling abroad or outside your home province
  • Even if you're a Canadian resident who's just going to another province or territory, our provincial government health insurance plans don't cover incidentals, such as ambulance or medical air evacuation outside your home province.
  • You need coverage for a range of unexpected situations such as trip cancellation, interruption & delay and baggage loss & delay
  • Your credit card may not have the benefits and coverage you need
  • Your company's employee benefits plan may not be sufficient
  • You're aware that government health insurance plans provide very limited coverage for out of country emergency medical expenses
  • You pay close attention to Government of Canada alerts and advisories when travelling and know our Government recommends travel medical insurance for all Canadians travelling abroad
