When you travel for business, even a minor accident or sickness can become a major problem. While you may assume that your government health plan or your credit card provides all the coverage you need in case of an emergency, you may find gaps with this type of coverage.
When you leave Canada, your government health insurance plan typically covers only a limited portion of your medical expenses. Also, they don?t pay expenses upfront, cover emergency travel back to Canada or offer convenient real-time assistance 24 hours per day seven days per week.
Travel insurance is specifically designed to protect you in the event that something happens while you are away.
