Do your travel plans involve "high-risk" activities?

Many adventure and back-country sports such as sky diving, ice climbing, mountaineering, canyoneering, or back-country skiing are classified as high-risk sport activities and may not be covered by typical travel insurance policies.

CapriCMW's Lifestyle Travel Insurance Services offers a unique specialization in Adventure Travel and can help you get the right coverage.

Frequently Asked Questions

I have a pre-existing condition. Can I get travel medical insurance?

We can usually find coverage for people with health issues, but some exclusions could apply. If you have an existing health condition, it’s critical that you disclose the details when applying for coverage.

I have travel insurance through my credit card. Do I need a separate policy?

Some credit cards do provide basic travel insurance. However, it’s important to fully understand exactly what your coverage includes and what exclusions apply.

Do I need travel insurance for travelling outside of my province, but within Canada?

Yes. Your provincial healthcare plan will not cover medical expenses incurred outside of your province of residence, even if you’re travelling within Canada.
