Top 7 questions about travel insurance

Travel insurance helps protect you from unexpected costs while travelling. This can include emergency medical expenses, trip cancellation and trip interruption costs, delayed or lost baggage, and flight and travel accidents.

Travel insurance can include coverage for hospital and physician services, paramedical services, ambulance and emergency medical return home, and more. In addition, travel insurance can also help with unexpected costs from delayed or lost baggage, trip cancellation and trip interruption, and flight and travel accidents.

Many insurance plans may be purchased right up until the date of departure, however, if you are considering coverage for trip cancellation it is recommended to purchase insurance on the day your trip is booked.

Provincial or territorial government health insurance plans may pay only a small portion of medical expenses incurred abroad. They might not pay for ambulance services, prescription drugs, fees charged by private hospitals or facilities or emergency dental treatment. In addition, many hospitals abroad may require immediate cash payment or proof of insurance, which our assistance centre would help coordinate.

Trip Cancellation and Interruption insurance benefits may be payable in the event that any member of your immediate family develops a medical condition unexpectedly or passes away and you can no longer travel or you need to end your trip early.

If you’re planning to travel while pregnant, our plans can help protect you while you’re away. However, the following coverage exclusions apply:

  • Routine pre-natal or post-natal care
  • Pregnancy, childbirth and complications of pregnancy and childbirth in the 9 weeks before or after your expected due date
  • A child born during your trip

A dependent grandchild meets our definition of "child." To be covered, your grandchild must be named on your confirmation and be travelling with you. Keep in mind that all travellers covered under a family travel insurance plan must be under age 60.
