Testimonials
Our family bought Destination Canada’s insurance for 6 months from Arbetov and I can confidently say that this insurance worked for us. Not only its among the best deals on the market price-wise, we had a pretty much hassle free claim process as well. Just feeling grateful that Arbetov has recommended this policy to us!
