    PLUS:
    Emergency Medical Top Up
    This plan is for customers who have some travel insurance coverage under another insurer and require an emergency medical plan, or for those customers who have already purchased our multi trip plan and need to travel longer than their maximum number of coverage days. It is your responsibility to confirm that top up is permitted on your existing plan with no less coverage4.

    If you are travelling outside your province of residence but within Canada, you still need travel insurance.

    Our Canadian Travel Emergency Medical Single Trip Plan gives you all the coverage of our regular Emergency Medical Single Trip Plan at a 50% savings. Every province has its own Government Health Insurance Plan (GHIP) 6 which can have different maximum amounts payable for different medical services. So if you need emergency medical attention while travelling out-of-province and don’t have insurance, you will personally have to pay any difference between what your province's GHIP covers and what the destination province charges.

    Need some additional coverage? Just “top up” your current travel insurance.

    Here’s how it works. Let’s say you’re insured for a 10-day trip but you’re actually staying for 12 days. You can top up your emergency medical insurance by purchasing two extra days of coverage.  Then you’ll have coverage for your whole trip4.

    Topping up your coverage is ideal when:

    • Your current Multi Trip Plan doesn’t cover the full length of your trip
    • You’re already insured through your work or your credit card, but need a few extra days of coverage4

    Please ensure your current plan allows top ups.

    Plus, Emergency Medical Top-Up coverage is available for individuals, couples and families1.
