The benefits of buying annual travel insurance

An annual family vacation, a last-minute business trip, a cross-border shopping trip…If you think about how many times you end up travelling outside of your home province or territory, the number can really add up. An Annual Medical Plan is more economical than multiple single trips and is more convenient. There is no need to re-apply for an insurance plan each time you travel.

According to an international study conducted for Allianz Global Assistance, 69% of Canadians travel within Canada at least once a year. That same study revealed that only 22% have travel insurance for each trip*. It's important to get travel insurance for all your trips, even if they are just short trips within Canada. Multi-trip annual travel insurance is a convenient way to stay protected on multiple trips throughout the year.  

Let’s say for example, that you’ve always been inspired to embark on an adventure trip out West, a discovery expedition through the Canadian Arctic or a breathtaking cruise among the Maritime fjords. While the possibility might be low, there is always a chance that something unexpected could happen, no matter how short or long the journey is. Even if you don’t consider yourself a frequent traveller, multiple trip, or annual travel medical insurance can be invaluable.

If something does happen while you’re in another province or territory, your Canadian government health insurance plan coverage may be limited. The last thing you want is to have skipped getting coverage “just that one time” or assumed that you were already covered by a Canadian government health care plan. Doing either could mean you’re left with a bill costing thousands of dollars for an emergency ride to the nearest hospital, a stay in intensive care or a medically necessary nurse attendant to accompany you back to a hospital for further care in your hometown.

Two trips, whether domestic or international, is all it takes to be on your way to frequent traveller status. An annual travel medical plan is the smart and affordable choice for all your protection needs.
