Why You Need Travel Insurance

Why You Need Travel Insurance

Your flight is booked, accommodations confirmed and your bags are packed. But are you ready to travel? While traveling is one of the greatest experiences in life, it does come with many unknowns. The best way to prepare for those unexpected situations is with travel insurance. Affordable travel insurance can be one of the best investments you make because travel insurance is a cheap and affordable way to protect yourself while away!

What is Travel Insurance?

Travel insurance is a policy that protects you in the event of unforeseen circumstances. It can include cancellation, medical emergencies, lost baggage, accidental death and other benefits. It is generally split into two categories: medical and cancellation. When buying affordable travel insurance, make sure you read what the policy covers and what it does not before making a final decision. 

Do you really NEED Insurance?

Travel Insurance is not mandatory. If you want to take the risk and not buy it, you can. But, we don’t think that’s prudent. There are many things that could go wrong while away. The worst thing would be if you had an emergency medical situation, and required to pay for it out of pocket. Medical expenses are high around the world and Ontario Medicare will not reimburse you. Another example includes an emergency cancelation which could result in total loss of your travel investment. An inexpensive travel insurance policy will give you peace of mind.

How much does Travel Insurance cost?

The cost of travel insurance depends largely on where, how long and the type of coverage you need. Most people can find quality insurance for under $100 per week for most destinations. Your age and any preexisting conditions will also factor in when you get a quote. To find cheap insurance, make sure to use Ensurco. We can compare the rates of many insurers all at once.

How can I save on Travel Insurance?

The most effective way to save money on insurance is to compare rates from many insurers.  Using Ensurco's online quoting tool will enable you to do this. We compare the rates of dozens of insurance providers to find you the best coverages at the best price. The other way to save is to find out what coverage you already have. For example, if you have an extended health policy in Ontario, it may come with travel insurance for a set number of days per year. Your credit card may also provide some basic coverage. Finally, if you rent a car, it may include insurance coverage for parts of your travel.

    I was in a time crunch to get an auto application done on a Friday afternoon as I was picking up a new car. I called my customer service rep at Ensurco and she was able to get me a quote, provide an application and even send confirmation to my dealer with a liability slip. Keep up the good work.

    As a high risk driver, I was looking for a good rate as well as good coverage. I spoke to an Ensurco broker who helped me set up a 6 month policy so that I can eventually move to a regular market at less premium. You guys came through when no one else cared.  Thank you so much for your help. :)

    When my son and I decided to travel to Calgary for a week, I called my broker at Ensurco who was able to provide me with great coverage at a really good price. I got my travel documents by email within 10 minutes. Exceptional timing!

    Claims service! Most people dread talking to an insurance company or broker to report a claim. But I recently called my insurance broker at Ensurco about a possible water damage claim. He was able to guide me through the process.  The decision was mine as to whether or not I would proceed with the claim.  If so, he explained that he could connect me directly with the insurance company adjuster and resolve the issue. Great advice and great service.  Thanks Ensurco!
