When you hit the open road, you want to make sure you’ve planned for everything – including travel medical insurance. Emergency medical treatment is the single most expensive hidden cost you could be faced with while travelling. While you might think you’re covered, there’s a limit to how far your Canadian healthcare plans will cover you while travelling. Once you leave your home Province or Territory, it’s up to you to arrange and pay for care in a medical emergency.

With Good Sam it’s easy and convenient to stay protected. Your membership includes up to $5 million in emergency travel health and medical insurance on an unlimited number of 2-day trips per year. If you’re planning a longer visit or need more protection, the option to extend your policy for additional days of coverage is also available. With coverage like that it’s almost as if you never left home.

Your coverage also gives you access to expert service and assistance in coordinating your treatment. This can include dealing with unfamiliar medical systems and processes, and providing you and your family with updates on your progress. That kind of support can go a long way in ensuring you get the best quality and level of medical care while minimizing stress and providing peace of mind.

Travel medical insurance is an important detail when travelling – but it’s not the only one. You can cross it off your To-do list early with coverage from Good Sam so all you have to think about is where you’re headed next and what to do when you get there.
