Vacations are an essential part of mental health, but they take a lot of work to organize. You need to get time off work, figure out where you are going, make a daily itinerary, book reservations, and make the necessary arrangements to leave your house. But there’s one crucial aspect that many Canadians neglect to organize, and that’s travel insurance.
Depending on where you are travelling, forgoing travel insurance could result in catastrophic financial ruin. As Canadians, we share our border with the U.S., and that country is a common Canadian travel destination. But provincial health insurance plans aren’t valid in the U.S., so if an emergency ever did befall you, you would be on the hook for the sky-high medical bills.
On top of that, travel insurance covers a wide array of additional travel disruptions, including trip interruption and baggage loss. Whether you’re planning a weekend trip or a month-long vacation, travel insurance is a must.
