When you qualify for Alberta Blue Cross travel insurance, you know you're protected in case of a medical emergency - and that your claim will be paid.

Anyone can sell you travel insurance. But if you ever need to use it, you'll be glad you chose Alberta Blue Cross. If you buy coverage from a bank, broker, or travel agent, you could be dealing with three, five or more different companies. And the company who sells you the coverage won't be the one you talk to if you need to make a claim.

Alberta Blue Cross is different. We design our plans exclusively for Albertans, we underwrite the coverage ourselves, we market the plan, and we provide services and handle payment if you have a claim. We stand behind our product, and our health benefits expertise is with you through any medical emergency - wherever you travel.

Purchasing travel insurance from Alberta Blue Cross is easy, as well as convenient. If you are 59 or under, you can generate a quote and purchase travel coverage online.
