Unfortunately, whenever you leave Canada on a trip, your provincial health insurance plan doesn’t travel with you. Depending on which country you are travelling to and the severity of the illness, the medical costs may be surprisingly high. If you suffer from severe food poisoning, you may need to stay in a hospital for a few days or a week, and your medical bills could end up costing thousands of dollars. This is but one reason why it’s important to ensure you have adequate travel medical insurance in place before you leave home.
Whether you plan to travel occasionally or frequently, there's a travel insurance plan tailored to your needs.
Travel insurance can protect you during unforeseen events on your trip--like flight cancellations, lost or stolen bags, and medical emergencies.
