Clients Travelling This Winter? Don’t Forget Travel Insurance!

Travel BenefitsA recent article from Advisor.ca reminds us that as the weather gets colder, Canadians often seek warmer pastures.

According to the Travel Health Insurance Association of Canada, 36% of Canadians are planning to travel this winter! With over a third of Canadians planning a trip abroad, it’s our responsibility to ensure our clients are educated about the need for travel insurance.

What happens if a client gets unexpectedly sick or injured while on vacation? Travel insurance alleviates the stress of not understanding a foreign health system. Some countries will stick travellers with pricey medical bills – and without health insurance, the costs can overwhelm.

If you’re looking for more information to give your clients about out of country medical insurance, we encourage you to read our previous blog on the subject, “Travelling Abroad? Get ‘Out of Country’ Medical Insurance – You’ll Thank Us”.

Remember, although provincial Medicare (OHIP in Ontario) may contribute a small portion of vacation health expenses, travellers without insurance can be stuck with large bills.
