Travel Insurance is a very important part of your trip and there are a number of different options you can consider.
Your consultant will provide a quote to you, at the time of booking, that will be based on the number of days you are traveling, your age and the cost of your trip.
Buying travel insurance is indeed an additional cost and some may decide not to spend the extra money, perhaps on the basis that they have some sort of coverage already with their credit card or other insurance coverage.
We urge you to check carefully what is included so that you can have peace of mind that you are properly covered while you are away – not only for your own sake but for the sake of your loved ones.
A medical emergency outside of Canada can be very costly. Travel insurance can take care of this for you.
Should a family member have a medical emergency while you are away on vacation, you will want to be able to take the next available flight to be at their side at home.
This is an expense you may not have considered.
Even delays that interrupt your trip, such as missed connections due to mechanical failure or bad weather, can end up costing quite a lot. This is something that the interruption portion of your insurance will take care of. Don’t take a chance –
Real life situations we have dealt with
A client, doing some work on his cottage, fell off the ladder a week before his European trip. He spent days in hospital but filed a claim and was repaid in full. He was able to make another trip later that year.
Another client was knocked over by a car the day before he left for his river cruise in Asia. He too was covered for a full refund of his trip.
A family had their 7 year old come down with chicken pox the day before they were due to leave on vacation. The whole family cancelled and were refunded the cost of their trip.
These are real events that happened to real people.
