“Don’t leave home without it” was an excellent slogan for American Express (developed by Ally & Gargano in 1982)” and I still remember the TV ad from years ago. However, this slogan should apply whenever you travel outside Canada. Even travelling across Canada outside your home province can cause significant financial setbacks if you do not have proper coverage. Travel insurance is to cover “unexpected accidents and sickness,”…not preconditions. You can get single-trip plans or multi-trip options if you travel multiple times a year.
What if you have family, friends, or students visiting Canada for weeks, months, or longer? I can provide excellent medical coverage options while they enjoy our great country or stay as a student. There are family or single plans, several benefits, and deductible options.
There are always eligibility criteria, so before I do a quote, I need to ensure you are eligible for coverage and explain if there are exclusions. In addition, at age 65, you must answer a few medical questions.
As a life insurance broker, I can also offer excellent travel coverage from some of the top carriers in Canada and shop for you to get the best pricing. So please reach out to me if you need help before you travel.
I invite you to join me and James Longstreet (Fivefold Wealth Management) on our next webinar to interview one of Canada’s top trend forecasters, Martin Straith, founder of “The Trend Letter.” Founded in 2002.
