COVID-19 Update: Travel Insurance providers have advised that the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is now deemed to be a “known event” for Trip Cancellation and Trip Interruption. As per their policy wordings, any claims resulting from events ‘known’ to a policyholder when purchasing insurance are not covered. If you have an existing policy please contact your travel insurance provider.
Through our 90 insurance brokerages, InsureBC is one of the largest groups of insurance professionals selling Canadian Travel Insurance in all of BC. Whether you are looking for single trip coverage for a brief trip South of the border, or a series of trips taken over the course of the year, our offices carry insurance offers that will provide you with peace of mind during your travels. When you travel outside of British Columbia, your provincial health insurance plan covers you based on BC fee schedules. Many jurisdictions (e.g. the United States) won’t admit patients without proof of adequate medical cover; also much higher fees for medical services can be charged (one hour in an emergency room in the United States can cost as much as $10,000).
At InsureBC, we represent a number of national and international travel insurance underwriters who specifically specialize in travel insurance products. Canadians have access to various travel insurance products but it is important to understand that every insurance company is different, based on your travel needs and your unique situation. Regardless of your destination, we will ensure you can experience the freedom of traveling, knowing you have one of Canada’s best travel insurance providers in your corner.
