If you’re planning to leave the province of Ontario on a business trip or with your family, you’ll want to get travel insurance. The Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) sets daily limits on refundable medical care and hospitalization expenses. Medical treatment in a foreign country can be costly, and repatriation (flying you back to Canada) is not covered by OHIP.
Whether you are a casual or a business traveler, going home to visit your family or taking the family on a vacation, there’s a travel insurance policy for you. We also offer travel insurance for visitors to Canada. Contact us and we will help you.
You can also choose to purchase your travel insurance online. The process is simple, and your insurance is valid right away.
How to get the most out of your travel insurance
- If you’re trying to decide between two policies, remember that the coverages, type of insurance (single trip or annual), limits and exclusions may be different.
- Many policies refuse to cover pre-existing medical conditions. If you have any, make sure you read the fine print of your insurance policy.
- Baggage loss coverage is really convenient and not very expensive.
- Invest in trip cancellation or interruption coverage to avoid paying those out-of-pocket last-minute change or cancellation fees.
These are just a few ways you can optimize your coverage. Call a CanTrust Canada broker today for all the details.
