Select Your Emergency Medical Plan Type
Travel is one of the most exhilarating and memorable experiences anyone can have – but being prepared for the unexpected should be an essential part of your travel planning, and your planning should include emergency medical travel insurance.
Emergency medical travel insurance can provide coverage if you are injured or experience a medical emergency while travelling outside of your home province or country. It can also provide coverage for emergency evacuation to return you and your travelling companion home, if you are travelling alone, it can provide coverage for someone to attend your bedside while in hospital, provide care for your children if you are hospitalized, and much more.
Out-of-country medical attention can be extremely costly and your Government Health Insurance Plan will not provide adequate coverage while you are outside of Canada. Having emergency medical travel insurance coverage may protect you from the high costs of these medical bills in the event that the unexpected happens.
Emergency medical travel assistance can play a crucial role in helping you get the immediate medical attention you need. When travelling, you may not know where to go to seek medical treatment. Your policy will provide you the assistance you need in helping you locate a certified medical facility no matter what time of day or night you call.
Emergency medical situations can range from minor injuries to life-threatening situations while travelling and may require immediate medical attention or even evacuation. These issues can range from reactions to local food or water, to falling while walking on the beach, to a heart attack and more.
Travel Guard offers family rates to families under the age of 55. For example, if a family of 5 with 2 parents and 3 dependent children under the age of 21 purchase the emergency medical plan through Travel Guard, the premium will be based on only the 2 oldest travellers. The emergency medical plan is a great way for families to protect against unexpected emergency medical costs while travelling.
Family rates are available for the single trip plan or the annual plan option.
If you plan on travelling at least 3 times in the coming 12 month period and want the convenience of leaving at a moment’s notice, the annual emergency medical plan provided by Travel Guard is for you. You can purchase this plan once and have the comfort of knowing that you are covered every time you travel throughout the year. You have the option of purchasing a 9-day, 16-day, 30-day or 60-day plan.
The annual plan is available for families. Under this plan you don’t have to travel together as a family unit; everyone can travel separately and still be covered under one insurance policy.
