Travel Insurance

No one expects to have an accident when they’re travelling, but they do happen.

Our TravelStar® Travel Insurance Plans give you the freedom to choose the coverage that best suits your travel needs. From emergency medical to trip cancellation insurance, we’ve covered the bases so you can get out there and enjoy your adventure.

There are two TravelStar Travel Insurance options to meet your needs.

Go out and explore the world.


If you're travelling the world, or even within Canada, there can be emergency medical costs that you didn’t plan for and that aren’t covered by government insurance. Our TravelStar Emergency Medical Travel Insurance makes sure you're covered, when you need it, no matter where you are.

  • For quick trips and extended stays
  • Up to $5,000,000 in coverage
  • Covers essentials including ambulance, emergency dental, hospital care and more!
  • Virtual Care for minor emergencies like a sprained ankle or eye infection can be available
For the things you didn't plan for.


Sometimes, it doesn’t matter how much you plan or prepare. There will always be things out of your control, such as bad weather, that can lead to flight delays and cancellations. Our TravelStar Trip Cancellation coverage means you can protect your investment and that when disaster strikes, you’re not alone.

Includes coverage for items such as:

  • Non-refundable airfare, pre-paid travel arrangements and cancellation penalties
  • Out-of-pocket expenses you may incur during extended delays
  • Baggage loss, damage or delay

Travel insurance protects you from unexpected costs for things like medical care in a foreign country or for rebooking a flight home because the airline cancelled your return flight. TravelStar Emergency Medical Insurance covers you in case you need emergency medical care during your trip. Trip Cancellation Coverage insures you for costs or new expenses you might have if your trip is cancelled or interrupted.

Our TravelStar Emergency Medical covers essential benefits like ambulance, emergency dental, hospital care and more while travelling. TravelStar Trip Cancellation Coverage helps you feel protected even before you start your trip. In the event your trip is cancelled due to an insured risk before your departure, you'll be covered for items such as non-refundable airfare, pre-paid travel arrangements and any cancellation penalties. In the event your trip is interrupted after leaving, you'll be covered for items like transportation to rejoin tour groups or the cost of out-of-pocket expenses during longer delays such as meals, accommodations, telephone calls and taxi fares.

Nobody expects to have an emergency when travelling but emergencies happen. The costs of medical care in another country can often be thousands of dollars. So can the cost to rebook a last-minute flight home. Having an emergency on your trip should not cause you financial hardship for years to come. TravelStar Emergency Medical Insurance covers you in case you need emergency medical care during your trip and Trip Cancellation Coverage can help cover costs if your trip is cancelled or interrupted.

It’s a good idea. Provincial health plans only cover basic costs like trips to the hospital or a doctor. Travel coverage such as our TravelStar Emergency Medical insurance covers things like ambulance services and prescription drugs if you need them while you’re away. You can also buy Trip Cancellation insurance to help cover costs if your trip is cancelled or interrupted.

Travel insurance covers the costs of unexpected events while travelling. You purchase coverage before leaving home and if you run into an emergency while travelling, you’ll be reimbursed for covered expenses. What do you do if you run into an emergency while travelling? First, call Travel Assistance for help. They’ll make sure you know what’s covered so when you pay for it, you know you’ll be reimbursed shortly after you submit your claim. Please see our TravelStar Emergency Medical and Trip Cancellation pages for specifics on what’s covered.
