Where in the world will you travel to next?

Luckily, travel health insurance covers us almost anywhere we want to go, and you'll want to pack your coverage right alongside your passport. The Government of Canada strongly encourages travellers to "Say Yes to Travel Insurance!" because:

  • Your Canadian health insurance is almost certainly not valid outside of Canada.
  • Your provincial or territorial health plan may cover nothing or only a very small portion of the costs of medical care abroad, and never up front.
  • Foreign hospitals can be very expensive and may require immediate cash payment. You could face years of debt paying off the costs of treatment for an illness or accident you suffered abroad.
  • The Government of Canada will not pay your medical bills.

When you're away from home, even a small accident or sudden illness can become a big medical expense. No matter how short your trip, or how close to home you'll be, you should never travel without travel insurance coverage.
