1) If you are travelling alone, the insurer agrees to reimburse up to $3,000 for the cost to transport up to two bedside companions (your family member or close friend) by round-trip economy class (using the most direct route) if you are hospitalized and the attending physician requests their attendance.
2) If a covered sickness or injury requires you to be returned home during the period of coverage, the insurer agrees to reimburse up to $3,000 for the additional cost of one-way economy transportation for you and one insured family member to return with you to your country of origin when approved and arranged by Allianz Global Assistance. Your coverage under this policy ceases once you have been returned to your country of origin under this benefit.
3) Coverage for side trips outside Canada except for the home country (as long as the majority of the trip is in Canada).
