Updated: December 17, 2021
As of December 15, 2021, the Government of Canada has advised to avoid non-essential travel outside Canada. While the Government of Canada continues to advise Canadians to avoid non-essential travel outside of the country, we understand life goes on, and there may be cases where you choose to travel. While we continue to support the federal government’s position on avoiding non-essential travel, we want to support your choice by providing travel coverage to protect you. We will continue to provide travel coverage, including for COVID-19 related incidents, for customers who have emergency travel benefits through their employer benefit or individual health plan.
For all customers purchasing trip cancellation and interruption coverage, COVID-19 will not be an eligible reason for cancellation as it’s now a known and anticipated event.
Both new and existing travel plans include COVID-19 coverage for emergencies—including customers with travel benefits through their employer benefit plan and individual health plan members. This includes extended hospital stays, ventilators costs and transportation home. Coverage will not include vaccines, COVID-19 tests or costs associated with having to quarantine. We will also not be providing emergency medical coverage for COVID-19 for individuals who choose to go on cruises.
Note: we are ONLY lifting travel exclusions as they relate to COVID-19; other advisories for specific countries are still in effect. We encourage all travellers to consult the Government of Canada travel advisory page prior to any travel outside of Canada.
We encourage you to stay informed as this situation changes and monitor our website for the most up-to-date information.
