Alberta Travel Insurance
Why You Need Travel Insurance
Never has travel medical coverage been more important, thanks to a global pandemic! Plus, medical care is expensive outside of Canada, with the daily cost of a US hospital averaging $16,000 a day! So, when you can get comprehensive travel insurance coverage for just a few dollars a day, why risk getting stuck with the bill?
Think you’re already covered? Consider that…
TuGo will cover you for COVID-19 sickness if, before your departure date, you’ve followed all federal travel vaccine requirements issued by the Government of Canada for entry and/or return to Canada if there are any.
Outside of Canada, your provincial health care plan may cover less than 10% of your travel medical expenses.
Credit card or employee group plans may not be as reliable as you think due to limited coverage, lacking personalization, and tons of restrictions.
If you have a pre-existing medical condition, you typically won’t be covered under basic coverage. But we’ll consider your age, trip length and your condition’s stability, to determine coverage.
• There’s a travel advisory? • The 14-day weather forecast calls for rain for the entire trip? • You miss your connection?
• Your luggage doesn’t arrive with you? • A family member back home is hospitalized while you’re away? • Your rental car gets damaged?
