When you leave the country (or even the province), you may also be leaving behind your health insurance and medical coverage. Emergencies don’t just happen at home, they can happen anywhere. Illness and accidents can strike when you least expect them, even when you’re in the middle of your dream vacation.
Even if you are the healthiest and most careful person in the world, there are still many circumstances beyond your control. Just ask mother nature. Storms and other acts of nature can end a trip just as suddenly as a chronic health issue.
We can make sure that you and your trip are insured for the entire duration you are away, at a cost that is reasonable.
Travel Medical Insurance
If you should become sick or get injured, foreign health care costs can be exorbitant. A single night in an American hospital can cost as much as $2,000. Travel medical benefits include the cost of health care to you, emergency transportation, evacuation and coverage for the costs of your companion.
No one ever wants to admit to the possibility of having to cancel a trip, however, it can happen. Whether due to illness right before your trip, or inclement weather, you don’t want to be left with the cost of the trip … and no trip.
Trip Cancellation Coverage includes:
- Trip cancellation
- Trip interruption
- Trip delay
- Lost, damaged, stolen baggage
- Emergency evacuation and repatriation
This could be your trip of a lifetime. Make sure you’re prepared if things don’t quite go the way you expect.
