Every time you leave home to travel — whether to a neighbouring province or across the ocean — you should have the protection of travel insurance. To help you make the right decision about which type of coverage is best for you, we’ve answered some of the most frequently asked questions below.
How Does Travel Insurance Work?
This type of insurance provides coverage to travellers when leaving home and can help cover costs related to medical emergencies and travel disruptions. The most important thing to remember is that you need to purchase travel insurance before you leave on your trip.
What Are the Benefits of Travel Insurance?
Generally, travel insurance will help cover expenses for:
- missed flights
- lost luggage
- trip cancellation and
- medical attention and emergency treatment.
Often, if you haven’t purchased travel insurance and you miss a flight or need to cancel a trip because of an emergency, you won’t be refunded by the airline or hotels, leaving you to pay for a vacation you never took.
How Do I Choose the Best Travel Insurance?
Make sure to choose coverage that fits the activities and destination of your vacation. For example, insurance coverage for someone spending a week at an all-inclusive resort will be different than for someone who’s planning an extreme sporting vacation.
It’s also important to look at multiple insurance companies so that you get the best price available.
