Why do I need insurance to travel to Canada?

  • 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

Are there any special arrangements for British visitors in Canada? Unfortunately there aren't and medical treatment could be extremely expensive if you travel without insurance. That’s why the FCO recommend adequate travel insurance and accessible funds to cover medical costs and repatriation back home.
