Travel Insurance CanadaCanada
is among the more popular tourist destinations, especially for visitors from the US, the UK
, and other European countries
. Beyond tourism, people travel to Canada for work, for education as well as to visit friends and family. Given this range of visitors, some stay for a few days while others stay for few months. Recent statistics indicate that the percentage of international tourists to Canada has increased, which includes a 20% increase in visitors from Australia
, 15% increase in German
visitors, and a 12% increase in visitors from Mexico
An increase in visitors to Canada has raised some valid concerns about healthcare of the visitors while in the country. While many countries including the 26 Schengen countries
and countries like Abu Dhabi
...have mandated the requirement of travel health insurance, Canada requires health insurance only for a Super Visa and not for a visitor visa.
In general, travel health insurance is a very important requirement while traveling outside your home country. This is particularly important where healthcare is expensive to relieve the travellers from paying for outstanding medical cost which might result from an unexpected sickness or injury. Recent tragic incidents like the crash on highway 401 south of Ottawa make this point evident to all tourists and highlights the need for health insurance during international travel.
