How to navigate an online quote for Travel Insurance
Select the country where you have your permanent residence.
Select your final destination or one of your destinations. You don’t need to select all the places you’ll be visiting or the stop overs.
Enter the date when you will leave your home province-if you’re Canadian-, or your country of permanent residence.
If you are a Visitor to Canada or an International Student studying in Canada, the trip start date should be the same as your arrival date in Canada or later.
If you are already in Canada by the time you purchase the insurance, select the date when you want your coverage to start.
Tip! If you are a Visitor to Canada or an International Student and you are already in Canada when you purchase insurance, select the day of purchase as start date; don’t leave it for later. Get coverage as soon as possible!
Trip End Date
Enter the date when you will be going back to your home province or country of permanent residence.
If you do not know exactly when you are going back home, select the day you want your coverage to end. The best way to go is to insure your whole trip, i.e. until the day you go back to your place of residence.
Indicate the date you entered Canada (only applies to Visitors to Canada and International Students coming to Canada).
Use the name that appears on your passport.
This one is pretty obvious…
Once you entered your information, the system will propose you different insurance plans.
Customize your quote
Select a deductible to see how much it lowers your premium.
Don’t base your estimate for insurance on someone else’s quote, even if you have the same age. You might need coverage for a longer period of time, or optional coverage and a lower deductible that will affect your premium. You have to get a quote that is based on your information.
