Why is Travel Insurance important?
Travel insurance is important to help protect you, or your family from costs that can occur due to an unforeseen medical emergency during a trip or an unexpected reason to cancel or interrupt a trip. Without it, travellers may be left to pay significant out of pocket expenses.
If you are looking for Single Trip Emergency Medical coverage, we have recently introduced a new plan that provides up to $5 Million for COVID-19 emergencies while travelling outside of Canada. See the COVID-19 Pandemic Travel Plan for more details.
