Part 1: Your Guide to Travel Insurance for Trips in Canada for Canadians Travelling to Another Province
The summer camping season is almost here, and it’s a great time for Canadians to enjoy the warm weather. Many of us will be packing our tents and heading out to explore the natural beauty of our country. If you’re planning a camping trip outside your home province, it’s essential to be prepared that is why we’ve put together this guide to travel insurance for trips in Canada.
Why You May Need Inter-Provincial Travel Insurance
One of the most important things to consider before setting off is travel insurance. While your provincial healthcare will cover you if you fall sick or get hurt in another province, it might not cover all services. This could lead to large medical bills if an accident or illness sends you or a family member to the hospital.
The Risks of Wilderness Activities
Whether you’re camping, hiking, or just enjoying the wilderness, outdoor activities come with their own set of risks, making travel insurance even more crucial. You could be far from major hospitals if an injury occurs, increasing the chance that you’ll need air ambulance services. These services can be expensive and may not be covered outside your home province.
Good News About “Canada Only” Travel Insurance
The good news is that travel insurance covering only trips within Canada is quite affordable. If you already have an annual insurance plan, through Medi-Quote you’re automatically covered outside your province for the number of days specified in your plan. Some plans even offer unlimited coverage days for travel within Canada, outside of your province of residence.
Checking Your Travel Insurance Policy
Before leaving for your trip, it’s important to check your travel insurance policy to understand exactly what is covered. If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out. We’re here to help make your summer camping experience safe and enjoyable.
