Canadian Staycations: Coverage within Canada

Believe it or not, most Canadians aren’t aware of the need for travel insurance, especially when it comes to traveling within Canada. Many think they’re fully covered by their provincial health plan.
1. Provincial health care usually covers hospitalization, but once Canadians leave their home province, coverage is limited.
2. If your customers are planning on crossing provincial borders, their provincial health care plan only covers a certain amount of medical emergency costs.
3. Provincial health care plans don’t always pay up front, so without travel insurance; your customer could be expected to pay for their whole or partial medical bill, before being reimbursed.
