How important is Travel Insurance?
Important enough that you should never take it for granted.
Here is just one claims example from Travel Underwriters, one of
our favourite suppliers, gave us recently.:
38-Year-Old Kevin: Sinusitis
Infection Led to Surgery and 4-day Hospital Stay
38-year-old Kevin was travelling through the USA, when he
began suffering from severe facial pain. He went to a hospital
in Florida, where he was admitted and diagnosed with sinusitis.
After 24-hours of IV antibiotics, the infection did not improve
and Kevin required surgery. While operating, the surgeon
discovered the root of the infection was a tooth, which he
proceeded to remove. Kevin was admitted for four days, then
discharged to complete his travels.
Prescription fees............. $63.42
Provincial medical plan contribution.........- $2,196.57
Amount covered by travel insurance...$61,389.23

and fell, severely injuring her arm. An ambulance was
called and she was take to Emergency, she suffered a compound
elbow fracture, as well as lacerations to her head an legs.
Anna's elbow required immediate surgery. After three days, she
was able to leave the hospital to stay with family until her

Trip Cancellation, Interruption and
Delay: Most of our companies have dropped
the 'buy it immediately' rule". If you booked your trip last
week, or even a month ago, we can still sell you trip
Early Bird Sales and Birthday
Special Rates: Buy your
fall or winter trip insurance early, and beat the premium
increases. We also expect seasonal increases from
almost every Insurer, including the
Rates normally go up in the summer and fall, not down!
Departure and return dates can be adjusted prior to departure.
We have a number of companies which rate
age at application date, NOT DEPARTURE, which can save
considerable premiums! We have a few companies willing to
sell up to 12 months in advance of the trip. Premiums are
frequently sold in "age bands". If you purchase
your travel insurance before your next birthday which
would normally put you in a higher rate band, you will save money!

complete details. It is recommended you speak with a qualified
Insurance Broker prior to purchase. On line policy information
is available for your personal research. We do not
recommend you purchase a policy online without contacting us
