Why purchase Visitors to Canada travel insurance?
Hospital bills, prescription drugs, and other medical expenses can add up quickly while in Canada and being out of pocket for these costs can be a large burden. Having protection and coverage for these types of unforeseen, but common events, can provide peace of mind and potentially save travelers thousands of dollars in medical bills.
The Visitors to Canada plan available through Blue Umbrella Financial Services includes 24/7 multi-lingual emergency assistance services available through one toll-free number for immediate help in finding the nearest hospitals, doctors, clinics, or medical care providers.
As international travelers coming to Canada, protection from possible accidents, medical emergencies and illnesses is essential – see below for a quick breakdown of the plans offered for both individuals and families.
There are three coverage options to choose from: $25,000, $50,000 or $150,000 in emergency medical expenses. The first two coverage options, $25,000 and $50,000, provide protection for people up to the age of 84, while the $150,000 in coverage is available to travelers up to the age of 74. All three coverage options can provide protection for up to 365 days and a minimum of 7 days.
There are three coverage options designed for families of 2-7 people where the premium is calculated based on the two oldest traveler’s. Coverage options for each family member range from $25,000, $50,000 to $150,000 in emergency medical expenses. All family members must be 59 years of age or younger and all three options can provide protection for up to 365 days and a minimum of 7 days.
Don’t travel without travel insurance
If you’re planning on travelling out of the province or out of the country, Blue Umbrella Financial Services can provide Travelling Canadians a simple, affordable way to protect against the cost of unexpected emergency medical expenses and more that may happen during your trip.
Your provincial health plan only covers a fraction of healthcare expenses incurred outside Canada and limits coverage when travelling to another province. Yet illness and accidents are just a few of the all-too-common incidents that could leave you facing significant out-of-pocket expenses when travelling.
Blue Umbrella Financial Services offers medical insurance that covers up to $5 million per person. Your finances will be safeguarded in the event of an unforeseen unexpected medical emergency during your trip. To increase your financial protection, coverage is also available for non-medical expenses like trip cancellation/interruption and baggage loss.
