Why travel to Canada?

Oh Canada! Often referred to as the USA's little cousin, Canadians are often called American when abroad. They will smile politely and correct you, but they don't always like it. To those in the know the Canadian accent has its differences and when you visit their country it's even more prominent. Quiet and polite, Canadians are proud of their country and it's not difficult to see why: It's big, really big, but it's not empty. Packed full of big landscapes such as mountain ranges, forests and glaciers Canada is the perfect country for the outdoors-man. If being in the countryside isn't your thing, the towns and cities have plenty to offer as well.

Why do I need Canada travel insurance?

  • Medical insurance - The costs of medical treatment can be extremely expensive in Canada so it might be worth getting covered
  • Cancellation protection - This keeps you covered if you're too unwell to travel and have to cancel your trip
  • Personal belongings - Just in case the souvenir Mountie statue you bought gets stolen from your suitcase
  • Get covered for:

    • If you have a medical condition - Consider getting travel insurance for pre-existing medical conditions or if you're pregnant
    • Extra cover - If you're planning on hitting the slopes in Canada, you might need additional cover
    • Flight delays - It's not ideal if you get stranded in an airport, but with a valid travel insurance policy you could be compensated for your expenses

Canada: Checklist

- Visa - British passport holders do not require Canadian visas for short stays, but you might need to prove that you have enough money for the duration of your holiday. 

- LOCATE service - It’s recommended that all tourists and visitors to Canada register with LOCATE so that the local government can assist you in an emergency.

- Weather check - Canada is prone to severe snow storms during winter, so it’s recommended that you monitor the weather and keep an eye on the local news when travelling to, around and from Canada.

Canada: Did you know?

- Its population is only half that of the UK – 33 million.

- Canada has two official languages; English and French. Some areas of Canada are mostly English speaking whereas others are mostly French speaking. So if you don't speak French, you may need to be careful about where you plan on going.
