Stay Protected While Travelling in Canada or Abroad
Travel Insurance for Canadians is strongly recommended by the Government of Canada, and like your passport, travel insurance should be included in any of your future travel plans. Should an accident or illness occur while you are in another country, it can easily deflate your travel budget and hamper your ability to receive adequate medical care.
Your provincial healthcare plan does not cover you outside of the country, and medical bills accrued while on vacation will not be reimbursed by the Government of Canada.
Contact our Huronia travel insurance brokers and make sure you are protected while traveling within Canada or outside the country. We can help you understand the different types of travel insurance you might want to consider.

Types of Travel Insurance
Health Travel Insurance
Your health travel insurance policy should cover life, health, and disability claims. This would include:
|Medical Expenses||Emergency Transportation|
|Examinations & X-rays||Emergency Room Fees|
|Hospitalization Fees||Prescription Medication|
It should also include the cost of a flight home after any medical incident, if so required.
Travel life insurance also offers protection and assistance to your family should you become deceased while traveling in another country. In most instances, your health travel life insurance will provide for the return of your remains to Canada as well.
Cancellation & Interruption Travel Insurance
Travel insurance for emergency trip cancellation or trip interruption should also be included in your package, as well as lost baggage. Leaving for warmer climates when winter settles into Canada can mean potential flight delays or cancellations when weather conditions limit air travel or keep flights grounded. Make sure your insurance covers hotel costs if you’re detained overnight.
Should you need to end your trip early and fly home to tend to an emergency, be sure that your cancellation travel insurance will also cover these types of unexpected costs.
Emergency Assistance Travel Insurance
Sometimes a situation or unusual event will occur that you may not have previously considered. Your travel insurance may include coverage for unusual events such as:
- Emergency Evacuation (not medically related)
- Escort for Your Children (should anything happen to you)
- Terrorism Coverage
- Accident in Flight (or on the ground)
Discuss with your travel insurance broker all the insurance options that are available to you. With the right travel insurance plan you won’t have to pay out-of-pocket for unexpected expenses related to medical, life, health, or unforeseen circumstances.
Cost of Travel Insurance
Travel insurance prices may vary, depending on the provider and the different factors they may use to determine your travel insurance rates including:
- Number of individuals travelling
- Type of insurance coverage needed
- Past insurance claims
- Your intended destination
- Government travel advisories
