Travel Insurance for adventure travellers

Why should I purchase
Travel Insurance?

Unforeseeable emergencies happen and can be extremely expensive. Public health insurance plans and other insurance such as homeowners', employee group benefits and credit cards may not adequately provide the coverage required to safeguard you and yours on your trip.

The following real-life scenarios demonstrate
the necessity of purchasing travel insurance.

Medical Emergency: A 50-year old woman collapses aboard a cruise ship in the Caribbean. The ship's doctor recommends she be taken to the nearest island hospital at the next port of call where very little English is spoken. The hospital expenses, emergency air ambulance home and additional emergency air transportation home for her family members cost $50,000. The lost portion of the pre-paid cruise is valued at $10,000. Her provincial health insurance plan only reimburses $2,000. With Travel-Insurance, not only are all these expenses and losses covered, our multi-lingual emergency assistance counsellors work with the attending physician and family physician to organize the best possible care, air ambulance, family transportation and the securing of a hospital bed back home. Additionally, all medical bills are paid directly to the various medical suppliers by the Travel-Insurance provider.

Trip Cancellation: A family totally prepays a tour package which includes return flights, hotel accommodation and a complete guided tour (total cost: $12,000). Two days before their departure date, the father is hospitalized following a car accident. Since the trip was only cancelled 2 days prior to departure, the cancellation charge by the tour operator is 100% of the holiday cost. With Travel-Insurance, the total insured amount is refunded, including the cost of the tour.

Trip Interruption: Honeymooners purchase air tickets to Vancouver and an Alaskan cruise. Their flight arrival from Montreal is delayed by weather and they miss the cruise departure. Without travel insurance, the honeymooners have to find and pay their own way home or find a way to catch up to the cruise ship. With Travel-Insurance, emergency travel assistance is one phone call away. Hotel arrangements and/or arrangements to catch up to the cruise ship or return home are handled by the Travel-Insurance provider and the transportation costs and the value of the lost days at sea are reimbursed.
