Regardless of where you are planning to travel, Travel Insurance is a must. Travel Insurance can make any travel hiccups, such as a flight cancellation or a missing bag, less stressful. Additionally, it can save you thousands in medical bills if you require any emergency medical attention during your trip.
COVID-19 has had a seismic impact on travelling. The fear of travelling increased with the increasing risk of contracting COVID 19. Additionally, we have all heard about the increase in flight delays, cancellations, border closures, baggage loss, etc. since the pandemic. The necessity of having travellers’ insurance has never been greater. Please ensure you have all the required documents and meet all the entry requirements when travelling to a different country, and re-entering Canada. Also check the Government of Canada Travel Advisory for any last-minute changes or advisories.

What Does Worldwide Travel Insurance Cover?
We understand that cost is the number one reason people shy away from Travel Insurance. We get it, if you are already spending so much to plan the perfect vacation, why spend more on insurance? Well, Travel Insurance not only covers medical bills but also compensates you for any flight cancellations, lost or damaged luggage, misplaced documents etc.
Overseas Emergency Medical Assistance
Coverage for medical evacuations, ambulances, funeral agreements, hospital stays, and emergency surgeries or dental treatments. A comprehensive travel package will include access to a 24-hour hotline and a worldwide network of doctors and consultants to assist in getting an individual home in an emergency.
Lost or Damaged LuggageLosing your baggage at the airport is extremely frustrating, especially when travelling to a new country. Traveller’s insurance compensates you for lost or damaged luggage. If your luggage is delayed for more than 12 hours and you need to purchase some clothes, your transportation carrier may only offer a partial reimbursement. Travel insurance will compensate you for the additional balance, according to our policy limits.
Trip Delay or CancellationEvery visitor has encountered some sort of hiccup in their trip plans: a quick wait, a prolonged delay, or even an emergency cancellation. Your travel insurance plan can pay for an airport lunch or cover the thousands in prepaid trip fees you lost because of a trip cancellation.
Travel Expenses and Accommodation in Unforeseen Circumstances.
If you unexpectedly fall sick or get injured and can’t get home, Travellers Insurance will compensate you for any unanticipated travel and hotel expenses. You will also be compensated for medically necessary companion such as a nurse or a spouse. If you are unable to make your flight due to situations out of your control, such as an illness, injuries, strikes, or natural disasters, travel insurance will compensate you for food and any unexpected housing if your flight is postponed for more than 6 hours.
