Travel Insurance

Don't travel without travel insurance

If you're planning on travelling out of the province or out of the country, Bankside Travel Insurance for Travelling Canadians gives you a simple, affordable way to protect against the cost of unexpected emergency medical expenses and more that may happen during your trip.

Your provincial health plan only covers a fraction of healthcare expenses incurred outside Canada and limits coverage when travelling to another province. Yet illness and accidents are just a few of the all-too-common incidents that could leave you facing significant out-of-pocket expenses when travelling.

Bankside travel medical insurance covers up to $5 million per person. Your finances will be safeguarded in the event of an unforeseen unexpected medical emergency during your trip. To increase your financial protection, coverage is also available for non-medical expenses like trip cancellation/interruption and baggage loss.

In addition to protecting you from unexpected emergency healthcare costs when you are travelling – such as treatment by a physician, hospital stays, diagnostic tests and prescription drugs – Bankside Travel insurance also offers coverage for trip cancellation/interruption, baggage loss, travel accidents, and more.
Bankside Travel insurance for Travelling Canadians offers comprehensive coverage to financially protect you against unexpected expenses. To apply for coverage, you must be a resident of Canada and covered under a government health insurance plan.
If you only travel occasionally, Bankside Travel insurance offers you a variety of Single-Trip plans, including Emergency Medical, All-Inclusive, Quick Trip, Travel Canada, Trip Cancellation & Trip Interruption plus the optional BounceBack benefit for single trips so you can make the choice that's best for you.
If you take two or more trips each year, enjoy the convenience and savings of a single purchase and coverage for any number of trips taken during 365 days. Select coverage for 4, 10, 18, or 30 days per trip outside of Canada. If you need extra coverage days, you can purchase Top-Up coverage for trips that are longer than the maximum trip length of your Multi-Trip plan. All multi-trip plans allow unlimited travel within Canada. Our Multi-Trip All-Inclusive plan includes Emergency Medical, Trip Cancellation & Trip Interruption, Baggage Loss, Damage and Delay, and Flight and Travel Accident.
