Canada welcomes visitors from around the world, but not their medical bills. Did you know that visitors from other countries are not covered under the Canadian provincial health care system and neither are Canadians travelling outside of their resident provinces.
It’s frightening to think that if something were to happen to you while visiting one of the largest sports events in the world, you would be vulnerable to the high costs of Canadian medical and assistance services—but no need to fear! There’s a very simple and cost-effective solution: Visitors to Canada insurance!
What would you do if your luggage got lost or stolen? Canada is one of the safest countries in the world for travel, but with thousands of people coming and going, the risk is still present. Visitor to Canada insurance covers lost or stolen baggage, protecting your belongings during your travels.
Many of the Pan Am competition venues and beautiful sights of Toronto are outdoors, which means you will be exposed to the hot, heavy, humid weather common in the province of Ontario. In the months of July and August, temperatures can soar above 30 degrees Celsius! That’s 86 degrees Fahrenheit—if you were to require medical attention for heat stroke, you’d be looking at a hospital bill of up to $5,000 for the day, not including tests and medications.
Planning on taking side trips while on your visit? With the right Visitors to Canada plan, you can hop around the country and even to the US and still have travel health coverage protecting you. With Visitors to Canada insurance, you can enjoy the endless beauty of Canada worry-free, from coast to coast!
Avoid the risk and get yourself insured before you leave your home country or province! Ingle International’s Discover Canada plan is an affordable comprehensive assistance and medical service plan for anyone without government health insurance, and it offers higher coverage options than any other Visitors to Canada plan.
