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 if you get sick or are injured while abroad
  • Hospitals and clinics in some countries have been known to refuse to treat patients who become ill or who have had an accident and who do not have adequate travel health insurance or the money to pay their bills
  • 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.
