Travel medical insurance for Canadian travelers

At American Visitor Insurance, we regularly interact with thousands of Canadian international travelers needing travel health insurance for their international travel. Some of our Canadian customers want to extend their travel beyond the insurance coverage they purchased initially from Canada before leaving. It seems that to continue with a Canadian plan, you must return to Canada to make your purchase. However, with our plans, you can start coverage the day your existing Canadian coverage ends and not have the expense or bother of a return trip.

Our travel insurance is particularly helpful for Canadian customers having pre-existing medical conditions, who are not able to get their Canadian travel insurance for their trip due to some constraint or another. We do offer some plans that provide coverage for "acute onset" of pre-existing medical conditions. To be clear, the medical conditions must be stable and they will not cover required treatment or medication for an existing condition but they will kick in if there is some unexpected recurrence due to the pre-existing condition. Do review our quotes and compare them to what you are offered from your home country or keep us in mind if your travel plans change along the way!
