Why Do Canadians Need Travel Insurance?

We all love to travel, but are you prepared for the unexpected? Travel Insurance covers lost baggage, medical emergencies, personal item theft, and cancelled departures.

Depending on your Travel Insurance coverage, you will be partially or fully reimbursed for your unexpected travel related expenses. It is smart to purchase Travel Insurance as soon as you book your trip because you’re unlikely to find an insurer willing to provide you with a plan once you’ve begun your trip. Travel Insurance is vital, even if your trip is within Canada.

How do Travel (or Medical Travel) Insurance work?

Travel insurance works similarly to other types of insurance. You will pay a premium in order to get benefits that will offset the costs of unexpected travel delays or emergencies.

Depending on your plan, your travel insurance will cover a portion or all of your expenses – from hotel reservation cancellation to non-refundable flight tickets to lost baggage.

What does Travel Insurance cover?

Our travel insurance plan will vary by provider. However, travel insurance may cover a portion or all of the costs associated with travel emergencies and delays. These can include illness, ambulance services, lost belongings, tour cancellations, flight cancellations, delays due to weather, and more.

Travel insurance covers you and your belongings in the case of many issues or emergencies, including:

  • Injury
  • Trip delays
  • Lost baggage
  • Ambulance services
  • Illness
  • Trip cancellation
  • Medications
  • Medical emergencies
What factors affect Travel Insurance rates?

Like other types of insurance, rates will vary by provider and the type of coverage you need. Some factors that play a role in your travel insurance rate are:

  • Where you are traveling to
  • The kinds of activities you will be doing
  • How many people are traveling with you
  • How many past claims you have filed, if any
  • Your desired coverage
What about out-of-province trips?

While some provinces have an arrangement regarding medical billing in case of out-of-province medical necessities, that’s not always the case. You’ll likely need to file a claim to regain your losses. Even in such a scenario, you may not be able to fully recover your incurred costs.

The reason is that the cost of medical procedures varies by province. Your provincial plan may cover a portion of your medical expenses, but still leave you with thousands of dollars that you need to pay out of pocket. You also won’t be covered for emergency transportation back home.

Taking all these factors into consideration, Travel Insurance can considerably reduce your expenses in case of medical emergencies even when travelling within Canada.
