IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT TRAVEL INSURANCE AND COVID-19
Please note the following important updates regarding COVID-19 from our travel insurance partner, Allianz Global Assistance.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Government of Canada may issue travel advisories to avoid non-essential travel (Level 3) or avoid all travel (Level 4) outside of Canada due to COVID-19. These advisories may be issued for all international travel, for specific destinations or for certain types of travel (i.e. cruises). Travel advisories can impact travel insurance and are subject to change. They may be issued, lifted, and then reinstated depending on the status of COVID-19 infection rates in Canada and abroad.
Trip Cancellation and Trip Interruption Benefits found in: Deluxe Package with COVID-19 Coverage, Deluxe Package Plan, Trip Cancellation & Interruption Plan, Non-Medical Package Plan
If you test positive for COVID-19 prior to your departure and are unable to travel as a result, trip cancellation benefits will be available under these plans.
Other than this circumstance, these travel insurance plans do not provide coverage for trip cancellation or trip interruption claims related to an epidemic or pandemic. As a result, COVID-19 is not a covered reason for trip cancellation or trip interruption if the Government of Canada issues a travel advisory for your destination.
Emergency Health Benefits found in: Deluxe Package, Classic Emergency Medical Plan
Policyholders with a Deluxe Package or Classic Emergency Medical Plan who contract COVID-19 at their destination will be eligible for emergency medical benefits.
These benefits are available as long as there is no Government of Canada travel advisory related to COVID-19 in place on their departure date, that advises against non-essential travel (Level 3) or all travel (Level 4) for their destination.
Enhanced COVID-19 cover found in: Deluxe Package with COVID-19 Coverage
If you do travel while a Government of Canada travel advisory against non-essential travel (Level 3) is in place for your destination, the Deluxe Package with COVID-19 Coverage offers benefits for emergency medical and quarantine expenses if you test positive for COVID-19 while on a trip.
This package also includes our standard emergency medical, trip cancellation, trip interruption, baggage and travel accident benefits for our most comprehensive protection.
Travel insurance is underwritten by CUMIS General Insurance Company, a member of The Co-operators group of companies and administered by Allianz Global Assistance, which is a registered business name of AZGA Service Canada Inc.
