Why get travel insurance?

Travel insurance is one of the most important items you can bring on vacation with you.

It's impossible to expect the unexpected, which is why it's better to prepare for whatever life throws your way - especially while you're on vacation, away from home. The Government of Canada recommends that you get travel coverage no matter where you're going or how long you'll be there. The reasons why might surprise you.


What does travel insurance cover?

In the event that you suddenly become ill or injured and require medical attention while on vacation, travel coverage can keep you from going into debt.  In most countries, medical expenses can be extremely costly, often thousands of dollars a day. Different travel insurance companies cover different amounts and services but typically cover emergency costs related to:

  • In-hospital care
  • Emergency medical services
  • Diagnostic services
  • Prescription drugs
  • Emergency air or ground ambulance
  • Return home services


Save money with multi-trip emergency medical travel insurance

If you take more than one trip per year, a smart travel tip is to invest in multi-trip emergency medical travel insurance. The benefit of purchasing multi-trip medical insurance is it is the most cost effective way to ensure you're always covered when you travel,  and also saves you time as you don't have to apply for it every single time you travel. Many people are unfamiliar with the annual, multi-trip travel policy but basically for every trip you take within 12 months of buying your policy, an annual travel insurance policy could provide emergency medical coverage for each of those trips.

    Trip cancellation and trip interruption

    If you already have supplementary travel health insurance, then perhaps it's trip cancellation insurance and trip interruption insurance you're looking for. Vacations can easily get derailed by events outside of your control - whether you become suddenly ill, find yourself unemployed, or there's a death, illness or sickness in your family.

    All inclusive

    This is your comprehensive policy that covers most of the unwelcome events that a traveller could face, with the convenience of one purchase. With all inclusive travel insurance you're not only provided with emergency medical coverage, you're also typically covered for trip cancellation and/or trip interruption, as well as coverage for baggage loss or delay.
