Why do I need travel insurance?
Anything can happen when you travel and it usually does when you least expect it. When you’re outside of Alberta, your provincial health care plan provides little to no coverage. Without travel insurance, you’ll be responsible for covering the costs of unexpected medical expenses which can be extremely high. Travel insurance helps to eliminate the ‘what-ifs’—it gives you protection from the financial hardships associated with medical emergencies and trip disruptions, so you can travel with peace of mind.
Every trip is different and our travel coverage options reflect that.
What do our plans cover?
Our emergency medical travel insurance provides up to $5 million in coverage, with no deductible. You can choose between a single-trip plan for all ages or a multi-trip annual plan. Trip Cancellation, Trip Interruption and Baggage insurance is also available to all ages. Coverage includes trip cancellation up to $15,000, unlimited trip interruption and up to $1,500 for baggage loss, theft and damage.
