Why is travel insurance important?
Travelling is one of the most exciting things you can do. Lifelong memories can be formed through international travel, and exploring the world has never been more accessible. However, those amazing memories can quite easily be replaced by terrible ones. While traveling is fun, it can also be unpredictable.
Visiting other countries can involve embracing other languages, medical systems, and cultures. While soaking in the way other people live is a wonderful experience,it can also leave many potential scenarios. Whether it’s a health problem, damaged or lost luggage, or another issue, travel insurance can keep you and your belongings safe when abroad.
Travel insurance is so often an afterthought, especially when the excitement of planning a trip takes up most of your time. However, problems can happen anywhere, which is why ShopInsuranceCanada.ca does all the hard work. We will help you compare travel insurance in Canada, across the country’s leading providers.
Types of travel insurance in Canada
All-inclusive travel insurance - This type of travel insurance will provide coverage through a comprehensive policy. Customers are protected in most circumstances, including for emergency medical cover, trip cancellations, stolen or lost baggage, logistical errors, and more. All-inclusive travel insurance is the most extensive type of protection, so the cost of premiums is typically more expensive than other types of coverage.
Single trip insurance – Customers are protected for one trip. A single trip policy usually accounts for one journey made through a 365-day period.
Trip cancellation/interruption insurance – Customers who take a policy with this coverage are protected in the event of a cancelled trip. Normally, the cancellation reasons accepted under the coverage are listed in the policy. Flight and travel expenses can be reimbursed, while some policies will also pay food and lodging costs for interrupted trips. Furthermore, some insurers even offer itinerary coverage.
Multi-trip insurance – This policy provides emergency medical protection for a pre-determined number of trips through a 365-year period. Some insurancecompanies may list this coverage as annual travel insurance.
Top-up travel insurance – Some travellers may already have parts of their trip covered, but not all of it. Top-up coverage allows customers to continue coverage after the original protection has ended.
