Travel Insurance for Canadians: What is It?


Travel Insurance for Canadians is designed to provide medical and optional non-medical emergency coverage to Canadian Citizens, Permanent and Temporary Residents, who are travelling abroad or to other provinces across Canada.

Canadian Travel Insurance will take care of the cost of immediate medical attention you may require during your trip since your government health insurance plan will not be as useful outside your province of residence, in case you have an urgent health issue.


Travel Insurance for Canadians: Eligibility Requirements


As you already know, Canadian Residents are insured under their Provincial Healthcare Plans, however, they only cover a small portion of medical expenses incurred outside Canada. Your government insurance coverage may also be limited while travelling to another province, and even the slightest injury or illness can deal a significant blow to your budget.

If you are planning on going out of your province or abroad, travel health insurance for Canadians will provide you with a simple and affordable way to protect yourself from the costs of medical emergencies that may happen during the trip.

In order to be eligible for Travel Insurance, you MUST:

– Be a Canadian Resident
– Be currently enrolled in a provincial health insurance plan
– Meet other specific conditions set by a particular Canadian Insurance company


Travel Insurance for Canadians: Non-medical Coverage


Canadian travel health insurance coverage we offer is up to $10 million per person. This comprehensive travel insurance coverage will give you peace of mind while you are on a trip as it will cover the necessary expenses for emergency medical care.

Also, in order to increase your protection, optional travel coverage is available for non-medical expenses including:

– All Inclusive Worldwide/Canada/USA Travel Packages
– Trip cancellation and Trip interruption
– Loss / delay / damage of your baggage
– Document replacement
– Rental car protection
– Flight or Travel Accidents
