Travel Insurance For Your Trip To Canada
It’s finally happening and departure time is only a few days away. You got your passport and ticket and your bags are pretty much packed. But aren’t you forgetting something? Where is your travel insurance?
Travelling is full of surprises and purchasing travel insurance is a good idea. Medical services in Canada can be expensive. This is especially the case if you have to spend time at a hospital.
Unexpected medical expenses during your trip could easily get you into financial hardship. It’s not worth taking the risk.
Having travel insurance gives you peace of mind and it’s the best decision to avoid such disasters.
Why do you need Travel Insurance
Getting sick overseas
When things go wrong when travelling to Canada, good travel insurance will make sure that you get the best care, even if it means moving to another country to receive it. It will cover you if you need to be sent home.
Having to cancel your flight
Something can happen to you before your flight. You could get sick and be unfit to travel which would mean cancelling the flight.
Cancellation is an important part of every travel insurance policy. When you buy your policy before you depart, you want to be covered for trip cancellation in case of sickness or injury. Some policies include coverage for pre-booked travel if your trip is interrupted after it starts.
Getting robbed during your travels
Canada is generally a safe country, but getting robbed can happen anywhere, especially at airports or in big cities. Getting robbed is a painful situation. It is even worse when you can’t get back the cost of your stolen Item.
With good travel insurance, you can receive reimbursement for the cost of stolen items. On top of that, you can submit your claim online while you are travelling. The process has to be easy and quick, so you don’t have to wait any longer than necessary to have your claim handled.
When something goes wrong during adventure activities
Are you planning to get involved in adventure sports like skiing, snowboarding, white water rafting, ATV tours while travelling in Canada? If this is the case you want to choose insurance that provides cover for adventure sports.
Choose the policy that is right for you
Make sure you compare insurance plans to get the right policy for you. Think about how frequently you travel and for how long. Do you need annual multi-trip insurance for mini-vacations or single-trip insurance for only one trip? If you go to Canada for a gap year, look out for backpacker and long-stay travel insurance.
I want you to have a great trip with the knowledge that you get help when needed. So get started with a quote for travel insurance and carefully read the policy to make sure it’s the right one for you.
SafetyWing Travel Insurance
SafetyWing takes the financial stress out of serious illnesses and accidents abroad and makes sure you’re covered for unforeseen incidents that could happen along the way.
Safety Wing has created a travel health insurance policy for long-term adventurers and digital nomads alike.
It is run by nomads and ex-pats who know exactly what such travellers need. It offers basic insurance plans for a fraction of what other companies charge. That of course means that they are also less comprehensive. In my opinion, it is the best overall travel insurance company out there.
Covid-19 is automatically part of any new plans purchased, and if you have a current plan, you can upgrade to include Covid coverage as well.
