When we’re travelling, sometimes something unexpected is a pleasant part of the experience. However, without travel insurance, the consequences of the unexpected can actually be very unpleasant. Events such as flight delays or cancellations, an illness, injury, or serious medical emergency while you’re away from home can be very upsetting… and very expensive!
As many around the province get ready to leave for their annual vacation, travel insurance is an item that should be included on your travel to-do list. Your provincial health coverage only pays a fraction of your medical expenses should you become ill or suffer an injury while you’re out of the province. When you leave the country, it doesn’t pay any at all. Pack a sense of security along with your personal items and purchase travel insurance to ensure a great trip.
Top Reasons You Will Be Glad You Purchase Travel Insurance:
- Your travel insurance can cover your medical expenses in the event you become ill or suffer an injury while you’re away from home, and includes 24-hour travel assistance to help you find a doctor, arrange your accommodations and get in touch with friends and family wherever you are.
- If you have to cancel, interrupt, or delay your trip due to unforeseen circumstances such as an injury, illness, or severe weather, your insurance can reimburse you for additional expenses you incur.
- If your luggage is lost, delayed, or damaged your travel insurance can cover the cost of replacing basic necessities such as clothing and personal items right away.
- If you have to cut your trip short due to an emergency, your insurance can cover the cost of returning home unexpectedly.
Your emergency medical coverage can pay the cost of hospital visits, ambulance service, outpatient care, and emergency dental work. Trip cancellation or interruption coverage can protect the investment you’ve made in your trip against unforeseen events such as illness, injury, or severe weather events. Baggage protection coverage can cover the cost if your luggage is lost, delayed or damaged. Whether you’re going on a business trip or vacation, travel insurance protects you when things go wrong.
