Life has a way of interrupting our best laid travel plans. When it does, you want to know you are covered. The cost of just one medical emergency while travelling can be financially devastating. Not to mention trip cancellations and delays that can put a strain on your wallet.
Buying travel insurance is the best way to safeguard your finances when something unexpected happens during your travels.
If an unexpected medical emergency should happen when travelling outside your home province, territory or country, getting treatment can cost thousands of dollars. Your government healthcare plans have limits on how much they’ll cover, which can leave you holding the bulk of the bills.
