TRAVEL HEALTH INSURANCE BC
GET PEACE OF MIND
Travelling is one of the most exciting parts of life, but it does come with its risks. Your flight could be cancelled, you could trip and sprain your ankle—or worse. It is always a good idea to protect yourself with travel medical insurance.
Travel medical insurance offers comprehensive coverage. Policies will cover claims for trip interruptions, delays, emergency medical treatments, and more. If you ever find yourself out of the country and in need of medical service, you don’t need to worry about any high costs—your insurance company has you covered.
There is nothing stopping you from receiving peace of mind; premiums are extremely affordable for people without pre-existing conditions. Contact us today to learn more.

RECEIVE EMERGENCY MEDICAL CARE
WHEN YOU NEED IT MOST
Travel insurance will provide you with the protection you need. A visit to the hospital or service from a physician will be covered. Your insurance company will cover claims up to a specified amount, allowing you to get the emergency medical assistance you need without worrying about the costs.
Even if you are in good health, it’s best to be prepared.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
TRAVEL INSURANCE AND TRAVEL HEALTH INSURANCE?
Our clients often confuse travel insurance and travel health insurance. While both are applicable to travel, they both cover different services provided. Travel insurance does usually offer some medical coverage, but it is limited. Travel medical insurance offers more extensive medical coverage in case a medical emergency does happen.
To better understand the differences between the two, you can compare their eligible claims:
- Baggage loss
- Trip interruption coverage (i.e., airline delays and cancellations)
- Trip cancellation
- Some medical costs
TRAVEL HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE EXTENDS TO:
- Lost baggage
- Trip interruption
- Trip cancellation
- Medical services, including hospitalization, ambulance service, virtual care, treatment, medication, death, disability, and third-party liability
TRAVEL MEDICAL INSURANCE IS IMPORTANT NOW MORE THAN EVER
While you have provincial coverage, your provincial government does not provide coverage outside of Canada. You will need to purchase coverage at an additional cost.
The Government of Canada encourages everyone travelling outside of the country to purchase additional health insurance, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. If you fall ill in another country, you will not have the free coverage you are accustomed to; you will need to pay for your health services.
