In a few weeks, the unofficial start of summer will be upon us as people all over the country head out for the Victoria Day long weekend. Many choose to stay within the country and therefore don’t think they need insurance — but depending on your travel plans, travel and pet insurance can provide financial protection in case something goes wrong.
There’s a misconception that you only need insurance when going on a long trip out of the country; however, trips closer to home can also benefit from the protection of travel insurance. Because insurance is extremely affordable, you should consider purchasing it if your trip is taking you more than 200 kilometres away from home. Unforeseen medical expenses as a result of an accident or the costs of hotels or rental homes that had to be cancelled due to changed travel plans could all be covered under the right plan.
Don’t forget that you might need insurance for your pet too. Since many of us bring our dogs along for a long weekend adventure, it’s important that you have the coverage needed to keep them healthy. Pet insurance can cover up to 80% of the veterinary costs associated with injuries and is valid when you visit any licensed veterinarian in Canada or the continental United States.
To help ensure that you have a fun —and safe — Victoria Day celebration, consider your travel and pet insurance needs before heading out for the long weekend.
