What type of travel insurance coverage should I buy?

The type of travel insurance you select will be based on the duration of your trip as well as the coverage you desire. We recommend a minimum of Emergency Medical coverage and if booking your trip months in advance we also recommend Trip Cancellation coverage. To begin, simply key in the details of your trip and any other additional information requested to obtain your personalized quote! It’s simple, easy and time efficient. Choose from a wide range of coverage options for your single or multi-trip travel and the types of benefits you require.

Why do I need to purchase travel insurance?

Accidents and illnesses can occur at any time. Whether travelling for business or for pleasure, the Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO) states that “anytime you leave Canada without supplementary travel medical insurance – even just for a few hours – you’re taking a risk.”

Travel insurance policies are designed to compensate you for certain unexpected expenses which may arise while travelling interprovincially or overseas. While your government health coverage does cover a fraction of these costs, it is usually very limited. Supplementary travel insurance is designed to fill the gaps of baggage benefits, in addition to accidental death or dismemberment insurance.

Again, while hospital expenses may be included in your government health coverage, a trip to a private health clinic could amount to thousands of dollars in unforeseen expenses. Protect yourself with a travel insurance plan from My Insurance Broker in the event of a medical emergency, trip cancellation or interruption.

Why do I need to shop around for travel insurance?

Insurance rates differ from company to company based on a number of factors including the claims experience of their clients, your personal information, the type of travel insurance plan that you select and the packages that they offer. Information about discounts may not be readily available, hence the importance of contacting a broker. Not only will you have access to multiple insurance markets and price and coverage comparisons, we will give you the expert advice that you need in order to make an informed decision.

Will my travel insurance quotes be an adequate description of what I’ll be required to pay?

Travel Insurance Questions & Answers

If I already have travel insurance through my credit card company or group insurance benefits do I still need additional coverage?

Yes. Your supplementary travel insurance is designed to cover certain unexpected costs over and above those covered by your provincial insurance, credit card company or group health insurance. While your credit card company may cover some benefits, it may not provide sufficient coverage. In addition, your group health insurance may only provide travel insurance coverage after a certain age. Hence, it is imperative to obtain supplementary travel insurance while travelling. You should also be aware of restrictions stipulated by your credit card company or group health insurance.

Will my travel insurance adequately cover me for the duration of time I need it to cover me?

Yes, your travel insurance is designed to cover you for the duration of time requested. If you decide to extend your trip you can also request top-up coverage and we will provide you with the additional coverage you desire. Simply speak with your insurance broker and we will make it happen! In the event of a medical emergency or an uncontrollable situation that requires you to delay or extend your trip, our travel insurance plans make provisions for these scenarios.

What does my travel insurance coverage include?

Your travel insurance includes individual and family coverage for your single and multi-trip annual travel against certain unexpected occurrences while travelling. In the event of a medical emergency, coverage includes hospital, medical and paramedical expenses, emergency dental expenses, medical repatriation and medical follow-up in Canada benefits if required. Additional coverage includes travel assistance for theft or loss of documents or funds and a translation service. You may be required to purchase additional coverage for trip cancellation/interruption or lost baggage based on the plan that you select.

Will my travel insurance policy cover pre-existing medical conditions?

Some travel insurance policies will not cover pre-existing medical conditions before a certain time period and require a certain degree of stability before departure. Conditions also apply for the emergency medical care benefit. Speak to a broker about the specific coverage restrictions of your policy to ensure there is no misapprehension. Beware other travel insurance companies, as they may only provide coverage for pre-existing medical conditions on a limited basis. Speak to a broker and explore your options. Reach us at 1-855-482-5001.

Is there anything else that my travel insurance policy will not cover?

Yes. In addition to certain pre-existing medical conditions that exist before your departure, some policies do not cover emergency medical care arising from high-risk activities such as scuba diving, sky diving, hang-gliding and mountain climbing; regions or cities where travel restrictions have been enacted by the Canadian government and stipulations regarding pregnancy in the last trimester (Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO), 2017).

In the event of a medical emergency, will I have to pay for the medical expenses directly and be reimbursed at a later date?

To take the worry out of your travel, some insurance companies will coordinate payment with the medical facility directly where possible. My Insurance Broker has partnered with the leading travel insurance companies in Canada in order to provide you with a travel insurance policy that will better suit your needs. Our insurance companies are world-renowned and in some instances, are the only policies that “hospitals will accept” (Testimonial from a pleased traveller - Acclaimed Insurance Partner). Speak to a My Insurance Broker Adviser today about the travel insurance plan that’s right for you!

What happens if I have a medical emergency while travelling?

In the event of a medical emergency, you will be provided with a toll-free number to contact to file your claim. A 24-hour multilingual travel emergency assistance service is provided to the insured, who will receive appropriate directions on how to proceed. Failure to follow the required instructions or contacting the emergency number may result in your claim not being processed.

Are there travel insurance discounts?

Yes. Our travel insurance solutions were designed with you in mind. We highly value our customer relations and are constantly looking for ways to better meet your needs. Speak to a My Insurance Broker Adviser about the discounts that may be applicable to you.

Travel Insurance food for thought

When considering purchasing travel insurance, you are reminded to explore various options and obtain the policy that best suits your needs and offers you the most comprehensive coverage. Travel insurance policies vary from company to company and information concerning your health, age, the medication you consume, the length of your trip and destination are all factors that determine the price of your policy and the medical coverage that will be included.

Your Insurance Broker will be able to guide you and give you the expert advice that you need, so that you can make an informed decision. At My Insurance Broker we work for you! Reach us at 1-855-482-5001.
