Travel Insurance – Ottawa, Ontario
Travel insurance provides coverage for unforeseen expenses or losses when you’re away from home, over and above your regular health or home insurance policies. It applies whether you’re traveling internationally or within Canada. Purchasing this type of insurance offers protection against a variety of possible circumstances, such as:
- medical emergencies
- flight delay
- lost, stolen or damaged baggage or travel documents
- theft of money or belongings
- emergency evacuation
- trip cancellation or interruption
- repatriation of remains or overseas funeral expenses
Additional insurance may also be available to cover such things as pre-existing medical conditions, travel to high-risk countries, and participation in high-risk sports.
Temporary travel insurance can usually be purchased at the time that a trip is booked to cover the exact duration of that trip. Alternately, a multi-trip policy can be purchased to cover an unlimited number of trips within a set time frame.
