Why Do You Need Travel Insurance?
Making travel insurance part of your trip planning is a must. Whether you are planning a cross-border shopping trip to the U.S., planning a cross-Canada road trip or are heading south for vacation, it provides you with the protection you need to have a safe and worry free trip.
The main reason you need travel insurance is that you never know what could happen before or during your trip. A job loss, sudden illness, or death in the family could force you to cancel your trip before it even happens. Once you leave, severe weather, flight delays, lost luggage, or even a medical emergency could bring your trip to a halt.
Without travel insurance, your dream trip could become a real life nightmare, and one that will leave you disheartened and left with an expensive bill.
One of the biggest misconceptions about travel insurance for Canadian travelers is that they only need it when they are travelling outside of Canada. However, this is not true. Anytime you travel outside of your home province, you should get insured to protect the investment in your trip.
