Does my provincial plan cover all emergency care in Canada?

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. 

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.

How does travel insurance work?

Travel insurance can protect you during unforeseen events on your trip--like flight cancellations, lost or stolen bags, and medical emergencies.

Who needs travel insurance?

Travel insurance from Allianz Global Assistance is available if you fall into one of these groups:

Canadian Travellers

  • Travelling outside of Canada or out-of-province.
  • Covered under a Canadian government health insurance plan.
  • Up to age 84 travelling for pleasure or business.

Visitors to Canada

  • Travelling for pleasure, business, work, study.
  • A Super Visa applicant.
  • A landed immigrant or returning Canadian waiting for Government Health Insurance Plan coverage to take effect, and looking for emergency-only coverage.

How do I know which coverage is right for me?

Start by considering your circumstances and your needs as well as those of your family. Do you have protection in case you have a medical emergency while travelling? Do you need coverage in case you have to cancel your trip unexpectedly? Then, choose from one of our available plans.

How can travel insurance help me in an emergency?

Depending on the plan you choose, travel insurance can help with the following and more:

  • 24/7 emergency assistance – When you’re away from home and something unexpected happens, our comforting, friendly emergency assistance team is available to answer your call for help.

  • Affordable medical travel insurance for Canadians – If you were to become sick or injured all of a sudden while abroad or even travelling out-of-province, you would have the comfort of valuable in/out of county emergency medical benefits, at a modest rate, for a fraction of the price of potentially high health care costs. Don’t risk being faced with the high cost of medical treatment while away from home.

  • Coverage in case you need to cancel your trip – Trip Cancellation coverage provides valuable benefits when you have to cancel your travel for a listed, covered reason such as health emergencies or legal reasons, a disaster to your home, because of a recent government-issued travel advisory, unexpected job loss, or a scheduled business meeting being cancelled. A broad range of trip cancellation reasons provides some flexibility when sudden and unexpected situations arise.

Are you visiting Canada?
