How to buy travel insurance online?
It's important to get the right type of coverage for your needs. Travel insurance policies depend on:
Age – Travel insurance should cover you at any age. While coverage becomes more expensive with age, comprehensive coverage is so important. Travellers 60 and older need to complete a Medical Questionnaire to determine their travel insurance premium.
Pre-existing medical conditions – If you have a medical condition, you can still get coverage. TripMate Emergency Medical Insurance offers competitive stability periods and Unstable Pre-existing Medical Conditions Coverage.
How often you travel – If you are a frequent traveller, it may be better to buy a Multi Trip Annual policy. It allows you to travel for an unlimited number of trips up to the trip length selected for a full year, rather than buying a Single Trip policy for each individual trip.
Destination – If you're travelling within your province, you may be covered by your provincial government healthcare plan. However, when travelling outside of your home province, including in the United States, your provincial government health care will provide minimal coverage and you will need extra emergency medical insurance.
What you'll be doing while you're away – Extra coverage may be needed if you're taking part in high-risk sports and activities, such as backcountry skiing.
Whether you're travelling independently or buying a package holiday – Package holidays may offer protection if things go wrong with transport or accommodation; however, TripMate Travel Insurance allows you to customize your coverage.
Mode of transportation – Some cruises and budget airline flights may not offer travel protection and you may want to consider purchasing TripMate Travel Insurance to supplement your coverage.
