Your wallet card has contact information for our Assistance Centre, available 24/7, if you need to access your benefits while you're away. In addition, get the TravelAid mobile app, which can provide directions to the nearest medical facility and local emergency telephone numbers.

You must contact the Assistance Centre before you receive any treatment while on your trip. If you don't, you will have to pay 20% of the medical expenses that would normally be covered under this policy, and some benefits may be limited or not covered.
