Ready to head out on your well deserved vacation? Before you finish packing, let’s package up your travel insurance.

What is travel insurance?

Travel insurance provides financial protection for you before, during and after your trips or extended stays. From trip cancellation to health care expenses while away and even lost luggage, planning your travel insurance is as important as planning the trip itself.

Benefits of travel insurance

  • Supplements your provincial health insurance
  • Access to the coverage you need, including emergency medical and dental coverage, trip cancellation, trip interruption and baggage protection
  • Peace of mind knowing if the unexpected does happen, you will have coverage for all the care you need

Why do I need travel insurance?

A travel insurance policy is important coverage for every traveller. From a health insurance standpoint, unless you have travel medical coverage through your employer or other source, this is the most important component of a travel insurance plan. Medical bills when travelling outside of Canada (or even outside of Manitoba for that matter) can add up quickly.  And without travel medical insurance, you and your family could be on the hook for thousands of dollars worth of treatment, hospital stay and even transportation back home. Even if you have a great travel medical plan through work, if you invest thousands of dollars in a dream vacation and become unable to travel, with trip cancellation benefits, you can rebook for another time. You may get off to a good start on your trip but then have to cut it short due to an emergency or illness.  Trip interruption coverage will reimburse you for the unused portion of your trip.  Delays and baggage problems that cause you issues while travelling can also be covered depending on the type of plan.

What type of traveller are you?

Are you a seasoned “Anthony Bourdain” type traveller? A “hang loose” adventurer? A five star accom type? Snowbird? Or maybe a student attending school in another country? A traveller visiting Canada?  A travel insurance policy is as important as your passport when checking off your “to do’s” for your next adventure.

Not all travel insurance policies will be the answer for every traveller.  It depends on your purpose for travel, how long you plan to be away and even your age.  Your first step when thinking of travel insurance is to check any benefits you may have through your group plan at work – you might already have everything you need.  If not, keep reading!

What Does Travel Insurance cover?

Theses are the types of travel insurance coverage that can be purchased.

  • Emergency medical insurance – world-wide coverage up to $10million (depending on insurance provider)
  • Travel accident coverage – provides coverage in the event that you are injured during your travels; available for single trips or as an annual policy to cover multiple trips or longer stays
  • Trip cancellation and interruption insurance – covers the cost of your airfare, other travel and accommodation
  • Baggage insurance – for lost or delayed baggage
  • Contact, adventure or extreme sports coverage
  • All inclusive packages – provide emergency travel health coverage, trip cancellation or interruption, missed connections, cost of lost or delayed baggage
  • Student plans – available for both Canadian students studying abroad or foreign students studying in Canada

Who is travel insurance for?

Anyone travelling outside of their home province to other parts of Canada, to the United States or around the world will benefit from travel insurance products:

Quick get away travellers – If you’re planning a quick get away and your main concern is health coverage while travelling, single trip emergency medical insurance is the basic coverage you will need.  This will provide worldwide emergency medical coverage.  Note that if you travel often, it may be advantageous to consider an annual plan.

Snowbirds – Canadian winters can be harsh and if your plan is to winter in a warmer climate like a Canada goose, an annual policy will cover you for up to 182 days.

Adventure travellers – Most travel medical plans will have exclusions for extreme sports and activities. But many of us seem to think repelling into a deep cavern or hanging ten while tackling that big kahuna is a great idea.  Be sure to inquire about adventure or extreme sports coverage.

“All inclusive” travellers – Regardless of the type of vacation you have booked, your travel insurance can be a five-star all inclusive. This package provides everything you need; emergency health coverage, trip cancellation and interruption, missed connections, airline and common carrier accidents, baggage loss or delay.

Studious types – Medical coverage is available while studying away from home. This coverage is for Canadian students attending school outside Canada as well as foreign students studying at a Canadian university or college.
