What Happens When You Come Home with a Vacation Injury?
Out-of-country travel by Canadians reached record highs in March this year as more than 1 million Canadian residents came home from overseas.1 Travelling can provide a much-needed break from the everyday stress of life, but what happens if you return with a vacation injury?
Unfortunately, some Canadians who travel abroad experience a medical emergency while away. A traffic collision, a mishap during an excursion or even just slipping while sightseeing can cause injuries that can cut your vacation short. And these injuries can continue to cause problems when you return home.
Many Canadians add travel insurance to help protect against out-of-pocket expenses from a vacation injury. Travel insurance can cover hospital bills and arrange for safe travel back to Canada, but support usually ends once returning home, even if you need continuing care. Some people find that they need to take additional days off of work to recover and might require further medical treatment, prescriptions or therapy.
Life, Disability and Income Insurance can help cover the gap while recovering from a vacation injury by providing up to $1,000 a month while out of work due to an accident. Vacations can be expensive, and many people have to save up to go away — expecting to go back to work right away when they return. Missing a paycheque because of an accident could cause a serious financial strain, but for less than $20 a month you can help provide some security for your family.
Additionally, coverage is virtually guaranteed for everyone between the ages of 17 and 69, you can upgrade coverage to include life insurance and you can earn up to 8,000 Hudson’s Bay Rewards points upon enrolment and on your enrolment anniversary thereafter.2
