When you leave Canada, even if it's only for a few hours, you are leaving behind up to 90% of your Government Health Insurance Plan (GHIP) coverage. Travelling without emergency medical travel insurance while outside of Canada can be an unexpected and costly expense. Only a portion of your medical expenses are covered by your GHIP when you leave your home province/territory and travel domestically within Canada.
You want a travel insurance provider who gives you true 24/7 travel and emergency assistance services. Knowing you have help while travelling, if the unexpected happens, is invaluable and provides you with peace of mind.
