Government health insurance plans will cover most hospital and medical expenses… when you’re in your home province. But when travelling outside of Canada or even your home province, coverage from your provincial health plan is very limited. Only a fraction of your expenses may be covered.
The costs incurred from a medical emergency outside of Canada can be financially crippling.
Travel health insurance is designed to help protect you from the costs of unexpected medical emergencies and related expenses that may happen while you are travelling outside of Canada or your home province.
Choosing the right travel insurance plan is one of the most important buying decisions you’ll ever make.
Travel Insurance for CARP Members protects you with 24/7 worldwide emergency assistance and up to a $10 million dollar policy limit.
Dedicated case managers answer your assistance calls and ensure appropriate care is being received, while medical staff interacts directly with doctors at the hospitals our policyholders are attending. Medical concierge services are offered by StandbyMD. This provides our policyholders with telephone access to a qualified physician anywhere you travel, with additional services offered in the United States.
Travel Insurance for CARP Members has a plan to suit all types of 50-plus travellers:
- Single Trip Daily Plans – from 1 to 212 days out of province.
- Multi-Trip Annual Plans – for trips of 4, 10, 18, and 30 days, travelling two or more times per year.
- Personal Underwriting – available when required.
- Non-Underwritten, Non-Medical, In-Canada and more.

We want you to be properly insured.
