What happens if you get sick or hurt while travelling?
If it happens in the US, your costs could be astronomical. If it happens in a lot of other countries in the world, you may need to be flown back to Canada for care -- a single medevac flight can cost tens of thousands of dollars. Travel Insurance will cover the cost of care in a foreign country (or even out of Province), and emergency medical care if you need it while abroad.
With Travel Insurance for Canadians you generally have a few options:
1. Travel80. With this product, you pay an annual fee (the rate is set at the time you sign up), and can keep travelling with full Travel Insurance coverage all the way up to age 80 (most plans cap out at age 70). And if you don't claim for 10 consecutive years, you get half your premiums back!
