If you are planning a trip abroad or you travel often, don’t forget to pack a travel insurance policy. The coverage provided by the provincial medical services plan isn’t adequate if you are traveling outside BC.

If you require medical attention outside of Canada you may incur significant medical expenses. Far too often travel medical insurance is not purchased. United States and other medical systems can be very expensive and, unlike our provincial system, it is the responsibility of the individual to pay for these extreme costs. Our travel insurance plans are cost efficient and can run the entire year so you can travel as much as you like with peace of mind. Here are just some of the features and benefits:

  • Worldwide coverage
  • Provides up to $5,000,000 in costs for acute emergency hospital, or emergency medical due to sickness or injury

Annual Multi-Trip Insurance

  • Available for single persons or families
  • Worldwide coverage
  • Provides up to $5,000,000 in costs for emergency excess hospital/medical benefits
