Why Do You Need Travel Insurance?

When travelling outside Canada, be aware that your Canadian health insurance might not cover medical expenses incurred abroad. Provincial or territorial health plans often provide limited or no coverage for healthcare received outside the country, and they do not offer advance payment for medical services. Healthcare costs in foreign countries can be significantly high, with many hospitals demanding immediate payment in cash. Moreover, in certain countries, access to hospital or clinic treatments might be denied unless you have adequate insurance coverage or funds to cover your expenses. It's important to note that the Government of Canada will not take responsibility for these medical costs.

Travel brings the unexpected into our lives, often in the form of delightful surprises but sometimes as unforeseen challenges. Travel insurance is your safety net, offering financial protection and peace of mind against these unforeseen challenges. From medical emergencies and trip cancellations to lost luggage and delays, travel insurance ensures you're covered, allowing you to focus on what truly matters — making unforgettable memories.
