Why should I get travel insurance?

Why one should decide on Travel Insurance is a surprisingly easy argument to make:

  • It’s not just for you,  travel insurance lets your family and friends rest easy– foreign hospitals can be really expensive and the Canadian government won’t pay your medical bills for you.
  • You can Relax and not worry as much about what could go wrong on your holidays.
  • It’s relatively cheap and easy to deal with compared with what it could cost you if you don’t.


While deciding to use Travel insurance should be simple, choose which provider can be complex (at least the fine print) at the best of times. With so many factors to consider when looking at quotes, finding the right deal online can be a nightmare.


The best travel insurance companies are reasonably priced, information and disclosures are easy to navigate, 24-hour support, fast claims process and a good reputation.
