Travel Insurance FAQs
Travel insurance coverage is unique to each traveller. Common coverage options include emergency medical, medical evacuation, trip cancellation, trip interruption, trip delay, baggage loss and delay.
The earlier you purchase your travel protection, the more options you may have. Trip cancellation coverage starts the day you purchase a plan. Plans with trip protection benefits must be purchased before you leave your home.
The cost of a travel insurance plan will vary. Common cost considerations include age, number of travellers, destination, trip length, and coverage type. In general, plans that include trip cancellation and interruption benefits will cost 4%-10% of your total pre-paid, non-refundable trip cost.
This is entirely up to you. Travel insurance may be worth the affordable cost of a policy for its potential to cover your trip and your health financially. You may have prepaid and nonrefundable trip costs you don’t want to lose, or you cannot afford to pay upfront and out-of-pocket high-cost medical expenses if an unexpected medical emergency occurs abroad.
Your Government Health Insurance Plan (GHIP) may provide little to no coverage if you travel outside your home province, territory, or country. If you cannot afford to pay costly, out-of-pocket medical expenses upfront, emergency medical insurance will benefit you if you unexpectedly get severely ill or injured on your trip.
In most cases, you must pay for your trip with your credit card to be eligible for the travel insurance coverage the card offers. Closely read your credit card travel insurance documentation because each card provider and plan differs. Often, credit cards have lower limits than a robust third-party travel insurance plan, and it’s essential to understand who’s covered, coverage limits and any special conditions and restrictions.
