Why Buy Travel Insurance?

You can’t control your trip, but you can prepare for it!

We hope every traveller enjoys safe and worry-free travel in Canada. But unfortunately, we know that this isn’t always the case. A sudden illness or injury could affect your travel plans when you least expect it. For example, imagine what would happen if you arrived in Canada and suddenly fell so ill that you required hospitalization. Now imagine what would happen if you injured yourself while on your trip and needed emergency treatment by a doctor. What if that injury was so severe, you needed to return home for further treatment? Unforeseen and unwanted events like these would not only spoil your travel plans, but also leave you with potentially costly medical bills. As a visitor in Canada, you could have to pay up to $5,000 per day for hospital care and double this amount for intensive care! And to make matters worse, you would most likely not have coverage under your foreign national health care plan or any Canadian government coverage.

So what can you do to prepare for the huge financial blows of unexpected medical emergencies? The answer is easy with Royal Travel - purchase Visitors to Canada emergency medical travel insurance.
