Travel medical insurance Canada

When buying travel insurance to Canada from the UK, you should always make sure you have sufficient medical cover within your policy. While Canada provides one of the best health care systems in the world, it isn't free and without insurance, or enough medical cover, you could face a steep bill if you need emergency treatment.

With a Holiday Extras travel insurance policy you can receive up to £10 million worth of medical cover should you need it. According to the Association of British Insurers (ABI) the average medical claim exceeds £1,300, with hospital room charges for non-Canadian residents costing over $2,000 per day.

Before you buy travel insurance, remember to declare all of your past and present medical conditions so we can tailor your policy specifically towards you. Failure to declare a pre-existing medical condition may invalidate your policy should you need to make a claim.
