Get the travel coverage you need this season from CAA

Tomorrow is March. This means spring break is close and many family’s are planning vacations. Maybe you are skipping across the boarder for a quick shopping trip and lunch or maybe you are going somewhere warm for a bit longer. No matter where you go or how long you are going one thing is for sure. You need coverage for yourself and your family. It is better to be safe than sorry and even in paradise accidents can happen.

When we go across the boarder we get Emergency Travel Insurance to cover us in case we need to see a Dr or have an unexpected medical emergency. CAA South Central Ontario offers a variety of plans  for days at a time or you can save and get an annual plan.

Daily Emergency Medical Plan

This plan is perfect for single trips outside of Canada, or outside your province or territory of residence. Whether you’re taking a day trip across the border, a trip out west or an extended vacation overseas, protect yourself against medical emergencies before you go.


Annual Emergency Medical plans- 15 and 30 day plans

Do you travel several times a year? If so, an Annual Plan could be perfect for you. Buy once, saving time with a single Annual Plan purchase.

Maybe you are wondering why you need coverage?

Did you know the Government Health Insurance Plans severely limits the amount of coverage you’re eligible to receive outside of Canada, and outside of your home province. For Ontario residents, OHIP only covers up to a maximum of $400.00 CAD per day for emergency medical services.

If travelling outside the country, or your province or territory of residence, the financial implications of an unexpected illness or injury could be substantial.

Important details (what is included?)

  • Emergency Medical Expenses up to $5 million CAD
  • Emergency Dental Expenses
  • Medical Repatriation

If you make more than one trip a year the Annual plan is the best options for you and your budget. The convenience of having the coverage and knowing you have no wait time is priceless.

  1. I love CAA, last time I went to Cuba I got my medical coverage through them. Thankfully I didn't need it, but it is always good to have!

  3. This is so true!! I've known so many people who went on trips and things happened and they didn't have insurance. It cost them a ton of money. Whenever we travel my parents always taught us to have insurance. It has saved us more than once.

  4. Wow! Being an American, I always love learning about how things are different between our countries. This is really interesting to learn about a travel insurance program. Here in the states, our insurance travels with us, I suppose. Something I suppose I would check into if I ever traveled out of the states. Thanks for making me think about my own coverage!

  5. Working for an airline I hear all the horror stories of "That trip we took without insurance…" and I will always have insurance when I travel. It's part of the vacation planning.

  6. I really like the idea of an annual plan!

    As someone who lives in a border town, I love the idea of an annual plan. I didn't even know that option existed. Very cool.
