Travelling soon? Don’t forget to pack travel insurance!

Are you planning a vacation? Or are relatives visiting you from places far away? In either case, we urge you to take the time to consider Travel Insurance.

Every provincial/territorial health plan may be slightly different when it comes to expenses relating to medical coverage while travelling in another province or country. Services and treatment, such as ambulances (including air ambulances, which can cost an astonishing $10,000 per hour), emergency dental treatment and prescription drugs, are often not covered if you’re outside of your home province or territory.

In most cases, travel insurance will coordinate your payment so that you don’t have to pay out of pocket up front for covered expenses. When you’re dealing with a medical emergency, especially when you’re away from home and things can be unfamiliar and stressful, the last thing you want to worry about is how you’re going to pay for it. Travel insurance can help you keep your focus on the most important thing: treatment.
