Why do I need Travel Medical Insurance?
Without travel medical insurance, your two–week vacation budget can easily be blown by something as basic as food poisoning, a dental cavity, or appendicitis. Even a cross–border day trip to the US can quickly turn into a medical and financial nightmare, as many hospitals in the US won’t treat you without adequate medical coverage or cash up front.
Your provincial health insurance plan does not fully cover you when travelling out–of–province or out–of–country. Outside of Canada, it covers less than 7% of the total cost if you get sick or injured. With a proper Travel Insurance policy, you can travel with peace of mind.
