If you’re travelling outside your province of residence, your provincial healthcare plan won’t cover you while you’re away. If you run into a medical emergency and don’t have coverage, you’ll be responsible for any medical and extra travel expenses incurred.
Key Travel Insurance Coverages:
- Emergency Medical and Dental
- Trip Cancellation and Interruption
- Trip Delay
- Accidental Death and Dismemberment
- Baggage Coverage and Delay
- Rental Car Coverage
At CapriCMW, we’ve made it easy to get the Travel Insurance you need.
