What is covered by travel insurance?

A medical consultation or a short hospital stay can result in very high medical costs. It's important to take out insurance to ensure your peace of mind in the event of illness or accident. Travel insurance plans will cover you for medical emergencies outside Canada and outside your home province.

Some plans offer options that include coverage for medical or non-medical benefits, such as trip cancellation and interruption, as well as baggage loss, breakage or delay. Some insurers also offer plans for single or multiple annual trips.

Visit the FAQ

I have travel insurance coverage included with my credit card. Do I need additional coverage?

The travel insurance provided by your credit card provider may not be complete. That is, it may not cover certain expenses that are considered eligible under a specialized travel insurance policy. What’s more, many credit card providers limit the duration of their insurance coverage to a few days. It’s important to read the contract carefully to avoid unpleasant surprises.

Do I have to be covered by my provincial health insurance plan (e.g. RAMQ) to take out travel insurance?

In order to purchase leisure travel insurance coverage for Canadians, you must be covered by your provincial health insurance plan (e.g. RAMQ) for the entire duration of your stay outside your province of residence. Our licensed team has alternative coverage options should you lose your provincial plan.

What should I do if I need to see a doctor during my stay?

You should contact your insurer’s assistance center as soon as you have a health emergency. The center is available 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The assistance center can accompany you, guide you and direct you to the ideal resource depending on the situation. No matter where you are, the assistance center can handle communications with health care centers to facilitate your exchanges and your claim.
