Travel Insurance Explained
With all the planning you’ve been doing, you might have forgotten about an important part of your vacation: Buying insurance. If you don’t know the first thing about insurance packages, fear not; we’re going to explain everything you need to know:
As far as health coverage goes, medical expenses may be the single biggest reason to invest in medical travel insurance. On your travels, you could be injured in a fall or accident. Medical treatment costs are expensive, and it’s essential to be properly prepared for an emergency.
On the fence about buying insurance? Consider the following benefits:
- If you have an emergency medical issue during your trip, you’ll enjoy peace of mind knowing that unexpected expenses will be covered.
- Choose comprehensive coverage that includes travel medical insurance, trip cancellation, and trip interruption insurance.
- Cover medical expenses when you supplement your provincial health insurance with additional insurance packages.
Depending on which insurance package you choose, your policy will provide coverage for the following:
- Emergency medical insurance
Get up to $10,000,000 in worldwide coverage with this policy (coverage amounts will vary based on your insurance provider).
- Travel accident coverage
If you’ve been injured during your trip, this policy will cover the associated costs.
- Trip cancellation & trip interruption coverage
We can’t predict the future. Your trip could be affected by a health condition, job loss, or other personal issues. This coverage will reimburse you for the cost of your travel accommodations and airfare if your trip is cancelled or rescheduled.
- Baggage insurance
Lost your luggage? With this policy, you’ll be covered for baggage that gets lost or delayed.
- Extreme sport coverage
If you’re planning to make your next trip an adventurous one, you can get coverage for high-risk activities with this insurance policy.

Who Is Travel Insurance For?
What’s your favourite part of travelling? For some, it’s all about getting away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life (or from Canada’s cold winters). Others go on trips to experience the foods, activities, and cultures that other countries have to offer. Depending on what type of traveller you are, you can benefit from different insurance packages:
If you don’t travel often, you might consider single trip emergency medical insurance for basic, worldwide coverage.
Venturing to a warmer client to escape the winter months? An annual policy provides up to 182 days of coverage.
Whether you love exploring caves or climbing mountains, ask our insurance advisors about extreme sports coverage.
If you’re looking for the most comprehensive coverage available, we suggest choosing the all-inclusive package. It offers insurance for emergency medical expenses, missed connections, baggage loss, trip interruption, and trip cancellation.
During your studies, you shouldn’t have to worry about medical treatment costs. With travel medical insurance, you’ll be covered while you’re away from home.
What Factors Determine the Cost of Travel Insurance?
The cost of your insurance will vary based on factors like:
- Trip duration
- Overall cost
- Insurance history
- Medical conditions
We’re going to answer the most frequently asked questions about travel insurance options:
Even though you might have insurance through your employer or credit card, we recommend reading the full details of your policy. What exactly is covered, and what are your coverage limits? You may need to supplement your coverage with an additional insurance policy.
When you travel outside of Canada, you’ll only have limited coverage for medical treatments and other hospital costs. With emergency medical insurance, you can ensure that all your expenses will be covered.
