When travelling outside of your home province within Canada, your provincial health insurance plans do not cover all unexpected medical costs such as air ambulance services, prescription drugs, and dental emergencies. Depending on the emergency, these services could cost in the tens of thousands of dollars.
Whether you plan to travel occasionally or frequently, there's a travel insurance plan tailored to your needs. Which type of traveller are you?
Are you a Canadian resident and plan on taking one or two trips this year? We offer coverage in case you need to cancel your trip before leaving, to protect you if you become sick or injured while travelling, and more.
Are you a Canadian resident and plan to travel more than twice in the upcoming months? We offer emergency medical coverage for an unlimited number of trips within 365 days from the start of your coverage.
Are you expecting friends or family to visit Canada? Get the protection they need as a new immigrant, international student, temporary worker or Super Visa applicant.
Travel insurance can protect you during unforeseen events on your trip--like flight cancellations, lost or stolen bags, and medical emergencies.
