What is travel insurance?


 

Travel insurance is designed to protect travellers against certain financial risks and losses caused by medical and non-medical mishaps that may occur before and during a trip. Examples may include a medical emergency overseas, delayed suitcase, or last-minute trip cancellation.

In addition to financial protection, the other great benefit of having travel insurance is access to assistance services while travelling. Our assistance team can arrange emergency medical treatment, monitor your care, serve as interpreters, help you replace lost passports and much more. It is always recommended that travellers purchase travel insurance, which for some destinations may even be mandatory.
