Frequently Asked Questions

Get a travel insurance quote online in minutes or call +1-844-200-8959.

You can purchase travel insurance for up to 365 days, which will cover you beyond the maximum number of days allowed outside your Canadian province or territory of residence. This is provided you receive written permission from the provincial government in your province of residence to maintain your provincial government health insurance coverage beyond the regular maximum in advance of your departure. In the event of a claim, you will be asked to provide such written permission.

If you are planning on travelling outside your home province or territory, it’s important to purchase travel insurance before you leave, to help protect yourself in the event of a medical emergency. If you plan on purchasing pre-paid travel arrangements, you may wish to consider purchasing trip cancellation/trip interruption coverage at the same time in order to protect your investment should you have to cancel your trip due to a covered reason.
