Planning to go on vacation, but not sure how you can protect your money against the costs for the immediate medical needs you may have? Don’t worry, Travel Insurance for Canadians will be ideal, if you are taking a trip outside your province of residence.

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 and Permanent and Temporary Residents, who are travelling abroad or to other provinces across Canada.

The Canadian Travel Insurance will take care of the costs for an immediate medical attention you may require during your trip since the 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 residence’s 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
