Why should I buy travel insurance?
Whether you travel frequently or occasionally, travel insurance protects you on your trip anytime and anywhere, in case of medical and family emergencies, travel delays or theft.
If I get sick or injured while travelling, won’t the provincial government health care plan pay for the medical expenses?
The provincial government health care plan provides only limited coverage for medical treatment and hospital costs outside of Canada; expenses such as ambulance services, emergency dental treatment and prescription drugs may not be covered by some provincial health insurance plans. Without travel insurance, a broken arm or even the flu could turn into a substantial medical bill, potentially costing you hundreds or thousands of dollars more than you thought you would spend on your trip.
