5 Travel Insurance Myths
Myth #1: Travel insurance is only needed when you travel outside of Canada
Just because your risk of financial trouble is lower in Canada, it doesn’t mean that the risk is nonexistent. Each province has a reciprocal agreement that allows visitors to another province to seek emergency medical treatment without costs, but not all costs are covered (meaning you’re still on the hook for some out-of-pocket costs). Not to mention, the added benefits of trip cancellation and interruption coverage can save you lots of money, even in Canada.
Myth #2: Airlines cover costs for cancelled flights
Unfortunately, airlines often do not help out with the costs incurred by travelers when a flight is cancelled due to weather. Expenses add up quickly – an overnight stay in a hotel, food, and even rebooking a flight if necessary, will be left up to the traveler in most cases. With travel insurance, everything is covered, so even a cancelled flight won’t ruin your trip, and Go Insurance will have you back on your way in no time!
Myth #3: Short trips don’t require insurance
The risk of an accident or injury isn’t decreased by the length of time of the trip. An accident can as easily occur on a weekend trip to the United States as on a month-long expedition to Europe. Either way, if the incident requires critical care and the injured person can’t be moved, it could mean an extended stay in a foreign hospital before transportation home is possible. That can add up to a financial disaster very quickly.
Myth #4: If it’s an emergency, bookings will be refunded
Unfortunately, many hotels, airlines, and attractions are not that understanding. Even if the hotel isn’t paid for in advance, cancellation rules on bookings could cost you one night, or even the entire stay. Airline tickets, attraction tickets, and other pre-paid or pre-booked travel plans are rarely refundable. Often, the only way to reclaim your money is through travel insurance.
Myth #5: Travel insurance is too expensive, especially for multiple trips and families
Insurance is often viewed as a pricey expense that is paid for even if it isn’t used. Unfortunately, insurance isn’t something that can be purchased after an accident or incident occurs. When a cancellation or medical emergency strikes, that small upfront price for insurance suddenly seems miniscule. The potential costs of not carrying travel insurance are far greater than the small price of travel policies. Plus, it’s the most affordable way to get peace of mind during your vacation.
