TRAVEL INSURANCE FOR VISITORS TO CANADA
Visitor-to-Canada travel insurance is the right choice for you or someone you know if you plan to stay in Canada for an extended period.
All the Canadian visitors must take out travel insurance because Canadian healthcare plans do not cover medical costs for overseas visitors. It is strongly recommended that visitors purchase insurance from Canadian insurance companies since the policies can be purchased from their home country. This means you can avoid paying thousands of dollars and having to wait months for reimbursement because these companies know Canadian hospitals. Insurers in Canada also learn how to help you with your claims.
