Prepare for the unexpectedTravel Underwriters Insurance

Nobody wants to think about what could go wrong on a trip. It’s impossible to predict an accident. Should you die prematurely, or become disabled, leave your family and loved ones financially secure.

Choose Travel Underwriters and Rest Insured.

Real-life example
A 27–year–old man on a ski vacation in Lake Tahoe lost control on his downhill run and hit a tree. He suffered severe head trauma and was airlifted off the mountain to the nearest hospital. Sadly, he was pronounced dead upon arrival.

With Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance, his family received: $25,000.00

Accidental Death & Dismemberment Insurance:

  • Covers death or dismemberment
  • Air Flight/Common Carrier maximum coverage: $100,000 (CAD)—as a result of an injury while riding as a fare–paying passenger on an airplane, helicopter or common carrier (bus, train or boat)
  • 24–Hour Accident maximum coverage: $25,000 (CAD)—as a result of any other situation not listed above


Options:

  • Single trip coverage
  • Annual coverage for multiple trips

Are you prepared to cover unexpected damages to your rental car?

It’s often convenient to rent a car when you’re travelling away from home. Unfortunately, your personal auto insurance or credit card may not cover you in an accident abroad.

Choose Travel Underwriters and Rest Insured.

Real-life example
A 34–year–old woman rented a car in Ottawa, Ontario in December. While driving to Toronto to visit her family over the holidays, she hit black ice and slammed into a barrier causing substantial front-end damage to the vehicle. The rental car company inspected the vehicle and sent an estimate of repairs.

Without Rental Car Protection, her out–of–pocket costs would have totalled: $12,759.00

Rental Car Protection:

  • Covers physical damage to, or loss of, a leased/rented automobile
  • Maximum coverage: $50,000 (CAD)


Options:

  • Single trip coverage

You arrive safe and sound, but what if your baggage doesn’t?

You take the time to pack your personal belongings, so of course you expect your bags to arrive when you do. Unfortunately, sometimes your baggage arrives damaged, or even worse, not at all. What do you do?

Choose Travel Underwriters and Rest Insured.

Real-life example
While sightseeing in San Francisco, a family of four stored various personal belongings in the trunk of a relative’s car. When they returned to the car later that day, the rear passenger window had been broken and their items had been stolen. Police were contacted immediately and a report was made. The owner of the vehicle did not hold content or homeowners insurance.

Without Baggage Insurance, the family’s out–of–pocket costs would have totalled: $456.00

Baggage Insurance:

  • Pays for the loss, damage, destruction or theft of your personal effects while in transit, or while in any hotel or any other building, en route anywhere in the world, on water, land or in the air
  • Maximum coverage: $1,500 (CAD) per person or $3,000 (CAD) per family

Options:

  • Single trip coverage

Uncontrolled setbacks shouldn’t cost you money

Sometimes life takes over and your travel plans go out the window. Maybe you have to cancel your trip for family reasons, or you break a leg, or find yourself suddenly without a job. You can’t plan for everything. There are times when you are forced to call off, change, or even interrupt a well–planned trip.

Choose Travel Underwriters and Rest Insured.

Real-life example
A couple was scheduled for a 12-night South American Cruise in late March, but cancelled after the husband suffered a heart attack.

Without Trip Cancellation/Trip Interruption Insurance, their out–of–pocket costs would have totalled: $6,000.00

Trip Cancellation/Trip Interruption Insurance:

  • Reimburses travel costs if your travel plans are cancelled prior to departure, or if they are disrupted after the trip has begun
  • Maximum coverage: up to the sum insured for Trip Cancellation or up to $25,000 (CAD) for Trip Interruption

Benefits:

Covered risks include: unexpected sickness, injury, and/or death of you, your travelling companion, immediate family or your travelling companion’s immediate family; natural disaster; travel advisory; subpoena; hijacking; involuntary job loss; missed connection; the non-issuance of a travel visa and more.

Options:

  • Single trip coverage
  • Annual coverage for multiple trips
  • Trip Interruption can be purchased as stand alone coverage


Why do I need Visitors to Canada Travel Medical Insurance?

Travelling outside your home country without travel medical insurance can be an expensive gamble. Medical and dental care in Canada is costly, and the Canadian government recommends that visitors be adequately insured during their stay in the country.

Choose Travel Underwriters and Rest Insured.

Real-life example
A 13–year–old Korean girl, visiting her aunt and uncle in Canada, developed acute abdominal pain and was taken to the ER. An emergency appendectomy was performed followed by a second operation in order to remove an infected section of her bowel. She spent a total of 18 days in hospital.

Without Visitors to Canada Travel Insurance, her out–of–pocket costs would have totalled: $77,429.25

Visitors to Canada Travel Medical Insurance:

  • Covers injury or sickness requiring an emergency hospital stay or emergency medical treatment
  • Protects visitors to Canada for short periods and extended stays
  • Protects immigrants and Canadians returning to Canada after living abroad who are awaiting provincial health plan coverage
  • Includes 24–Hour Accident Insurance up to $25,000 (CAD)


Benefits:

Includes emergency air transportation, emergency dental expense, prescription drugs, board and lodging for you or your travelling companion while confined to a hospital and more.

Options include:

  • Various limits of insurance available to a maximum of $200,000 (CAD)
  • Single trip coverage
  • Choice of deductible

Why do I need Travel Medical Insurance?

Without travel medical insurance, your two–week vacation budget can easily be blown by something as basic as food poisoning, a sprained wrist, or appendicitis. Even a cross–border day trip to the US can quickly turn into a medical and financial nightmare, as many hospitals in the US won’t treat you without adequate medical coverage or cash up front.

Real-life example
A 57–year–old Ontario woman, at her Florida vacation home, awoke in the middle of the night with acute abdominal pain. During the early morning hours, she was admitted to the hospital and diagnosed with a complete stomach blockage. She underwent immediate surgery and spent the next 5 days in hospital.

Without Travel Medical Insurance, her out–of–pocket costs would have totalled: $88,200.00

Did you know?

Your provincial health insurance plan does not fully cover you when travelling out–of–province or out–of–country. Outside of Canada, it covers less than 7% of the total cost if you get sick or injured. With protection from Travel Underwriters, you can travel with peace of mind.

Choose Travel Underwriters and Rest Insured.

Travel Medical Insurance:

  • Covers injury or sickness requiring an emergency hospital stay or emergency medical treatment while travelling outside your home province/territory or abroad

Options include:

  • Single trip coverage
  • Annual coverage for multiple trips
