Protect your family from the high costs of expenses incurred due to an unforeseen incident while out of province. Medical expenses alone can be hundreds of thousands of dollars in an emergency. Most packages are 100% nonrefundabe and no changes are permitted for any reason so it is important the cost of your trip is protected. The following travel insurance is available through your travel agent:
Emergency Hospital Medical: protect yourself from the high cost of medical expenses in case of an accident out of province
Trip Cancellation: protect the cost of your trip in case of emergency prior to departure leaving you unable to travel
Trip Interruption: cover yourself for early return home and protect the cost of the unused portion of your trip

Bagage: coverage for lost or damaged baggage
Package insurance: Purchase pacakge insurance including all of the above and family rates are available.
*If you have an existing insurance policy with another company, including your credit card, please verify that you have adequate coverage to protect you for the duration of your trip. Over 60% of Canadians think they have more insurance than they do.
*If your credit card has cancellation coverage you will need to verify the amounts, we can purchase top up insurance if the full amount is not covered (most cards cover a maximum of $1500 pp or $5000 per trip) Verify if 100% of your trip has to be purchased using that card to qualify for their coverage.
*If you have out of province medical insurance through your employer, verify that it covers personal vacations and all family members while out of province. Also ask if emergency and/or medical evacuation are included in your plan.
Whatever insurance you are taking with you, remember to bring your policy number and contact phone number with you in case of an emergency during your trip.
If you decline to purchase travel insurance from your travel agent, the agent is not responsible for expenses incurred due to an accident or emergency abroad.
