Do I need travel insurance for my holiday to Canada?

Planning your getaway to Canada can be really exciting. From planning where you’re going to stay, to booking exciting excursions it’s all good fun.

But one thing none of us plan on, is something going wrong.

With 1 in 20 people claiming on their Annual Travel Insurance in 2017*, it’s more common than you might think for something unexpected to happen to you.

That’s where having a good travel insurance policy for your trip to Canada can help.

Especially given the fact that the Canadian National Universal Health Coverage is only available for people who live in Canada.

Having a good travel insurance policy can help you to cover the costs of a medical emergency as well as covering things like stolen possessions or having to cancel your holiday.

When you’ve invested so much time and money into a holiday, we know that it’s important for you to feel confident that you’re properly covered. It’s something that’s worth doing right.

Travel insurance to Canada with pre-existing conditions

When you have pre-existing medical conditions, it’s important that you make sure you’re properly covered with your travel insurance.

Adding your conditions to your insurance will mean that you can relax, knowing that if the worst happens, you’ll be covered.

Telling us about your conditions is simple and we’ll never rush you. We know how important it is to get right. We’ll ask you about the conditions you’ve had, or have had medical appointments for, in the past two years when you’re getting your quote either online or over the phone.

Covering your holiday plans

When you’re doing something extra-exciting on holiday, it’s worth thinking about whether you’ll be covered for that activity.

As standard, we cover a lot of sports and activities as standard with our policies – but if you’re taking a ski trip, then it may be worth considering upgrading a Comprehensive policy to add on our optional Winter Sports package. This then gives you an added layer of protection for your plans.
