Do you dream in technicolour, or monochrome?

We like the best of both worlds. Last summer, the sisu crew made its way to Toronto Island via Hanlan’s point to shoot the Toronto skyline in stop motion format. Wine, cheese, and laughs ensued on that sunny Saturday. The sisu crew needed the time, since the film was shot over 10 hours. Note to self: Don’t forget the fully charged backup batteries. The condensed version of the film can be seen here. See more from the sisu crew at sisuproduction.com

Ingle International hits the streets ahead of the Toronto NBA All-Star Weekend

Ingle’s creative team recently took to the frigid streets of Toronto to catch the pulse of the city ahead of the big weekend. We thought we’d chat with some passersby and gather their thoughts on the big game and Toronto’s hometown team, the Raptors. Toronto is heating up this weekend, as the NBA All-Star Game rolls into town—and along with it some of the hottest athletes and celebrities around. This is the first time the game has been held outside the U.S. (we sure hope the players have passports—and travel insurance, of course). And while excitement is certainly trending upwards for the big game, it seems as though the celebrity contest is going to be just as popular. Drake and his two henchmen José Bautista and Steve Nash are coaching the East squad, while Kevin Hart is leading the West. It’s going to be an entertaining match indeed, with no…

Gong Xi Fa Cai!

Chinese New Year, also known as Spring Festival, is a seven-day celebration of good fortune, happiness, and prosperity. Preparation includes freeing homes of misfortune through thorough cleaning and sweeping and also extends to personal grooming practices, with many folks getting their hair cut until the eleventh hour. Chinese New Year begins with a reunion dinner and ends with the Lantern Festival. During the reunion dinner, whole families get together at home or a restaurant to eat dumplings and noodles, among other fine foods. In anticipation, we hit the streets of Toronto’s Chinatown to get the skinny. After stopping in to a few places, we can definitely say that family and food are the focal point of this holiday of luck. Henry of Henry’s Salon was quick to point out the differences between Chinese New Year in China and Chinese New Year in Canada, as well as their contrast to Canadian…

Listen to Robin Ingle on CBC’s Maritime Noon

CEO Robin Ingle was recently on Maritime Noon fielding travel insurance queries from across the region. During the show, Robin debunked myths surrounding pre-existing conditions, reflected on the inner workings of the industry, and advised callers and listeners on how to be good travel insurance consumers. A few case studies are noted below. One of the callers was Will from Fredericton. Will suffered a freak toe injury following a resort infrastructure mishap. He was confused because he felt that he should have obtained liability coverage in addition to the travel health insurance he purchased. Robin recognized his confusion and urged travellers to read the fine print to better understand their coverage. If you have company benefits, Robin recommends you contact your benefits administrator in case you need to obtain a top-up. After speaking to a caller named Dwight, Robin agreed that consumers need to be cautious of administrators who offer policies…

#itravelbecause

Reasons to travel abound—from simple curiosity and self-discovery, to business and education. But don’t just take our word for it: we took time at the recent Go Global Expo to ask attendees to share their own reasons for travelling. Is there a common thread that ties all these reasons together? Our CEO Robin Ingle’s experienced take on travel has something very simple at its heart: when we travel, we see that all over the world people are more alike than they are different. More than just a pleasant notion, in today’s world it’s more important than ever to experience, remember, and live with this truth. This holiday season, let’s remember all we share in common with everyone else in the world, and maybe make plans to go see for ourselves. So what’s your reason going to be?

Snowball Fight!

Well, almost. Stuart and Lola will tell you it’s not exactly a fair fight, but it sure looks fun! We thought it’d be nice to have Stuart and Lola deliver a festive message wishing everyone a safe and happy holiday season, but maybe shooting in front of a live studio audience wasn’t the greatest idea. And where did they get all those snowballs, anyway? Stuart’s out in the cold Stuart would like to wish you and all of our clients a safe and happy holiday season.

Commute Like an Athlete During the Pan Am Games #TO2015

With over 250,000 fans and spectators in town, and over 7,500 athletes, Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) are bursting with events, tourists, and traffic! Ingle International is no stranger to the increase in congestion—located in downtown Toronto, we see the buzz of Pan Am excitement all around us! While it’s a very exciting time for the city of Toronto and the province of Ontario, it can also be frustrating for those commuting or attending any number of events and competitions around the GTA. Now is a great time to make use of the upgraded bike paths and routes the City of Toronto has developed for cyclists during the Pan Am and Parapan Am Games. The Friends of the Pan Am Path have developed the Pan Am Path, over 80 kilometres of multi-use trails. These pathways cover a serious portion of the city: from Toronto’s west end, down…

Ingle International Launches New Insurance Product to Protect the Health of Millions of Visitors to Canada

Toronto, Canada – Ingle International, a travel health company providing customized insurance solutions, launches Discover Canada: Super Visa and Visitors to Canada Travel Insurance, a new travel plan that is available to the over 17 million visitors to Canada each year. Ingle International has identified a gap in the travel insurance market that leaves visitors to Canada and Super Visa applicants vulnerable to the high costs of health care in Canada. “Health care in Canada is expensive,” says Robin Ingle, Chairman of travel and health insurance group the Ingle Group of Companies. “There are common misconceptions about the Canadian health care system and what it will and won’t cover—a non-resident visitor can expect to pay up to $5,000 per day in a hospital and up to three times that for the intensive care unit,” explains Ingle. Ingle’s new plan, Discover Canada, fills the market gap for a travel plan that…

Canada Welcomes Visitors, But Not Their Health Bills: What You Need to Know to Make Sure Your Visitors Are Insured

Toronto, Canada – From the Rockies to the Red River, it’s springtime in Canada, and that means an influx of visitors from around the world. According to the Canadian Tourism Commission, Canada received over 17 million visitors in 2014, and each one was vulnerable to the costs of the Canadian health care system. “Health care in Canada is expensive,” says Robin Ingle, Chairman of travel and health insurance group Ingle International. “There are common misconceptions about the Canadian health care system and what it will and won’t cover—a non-resident visitor can expect to pay up to $5,000 per day in a hospital and double that for the intensive care unit,” explains Ingle. Ingle defines a visitor as anyone visiting from another country, new immigrants, and returning Canadians. All visitors within these categories require travel and health insurance while in Canada, and it is up to them to make appropriate arrangements prior…

Ingle International Launches Preventative Care Student Assistance Program for International Students

Ingle International—a group of companies specializing in travel assistance, health care, and insurance for global travellers and students—launches a special program for international students, focusing on preventative health care assistance. Ingle International recognizes that education and access to health resources are the first steps in preventing common (and sometimes serious) physical and mental wellness issues among international students. Studies have shown that college and university students use online resources as a source of health information; in response, Ingle has developed a custom online health navigation portal that provides instant access to resources and solutions for common and complex health concerns among international students, such as influenza and vaccines, migraines, IBS, anxiety disorders, depression, smoking, alcohol use, drug use, and sexual health. “Students have an unlimited ability to find information online, but not all that information is current, correct, or Canada-specific. Most importantly, it may not be relevant information. We must…

Think Cruise Line Insurance Is Enough? Think Again

What is cruise insurance? When you book a cruise trip, your cruise line will often offer you a prepackaged travel insurance plan to go along with it. This can seem like an easy solution to your insurance needs, but be warned: cruise insurance plans are designed to be “one size fits all”—they are not customized to cover your individual needs. In fact, they are typically designed for American travellers as a supplement to their existing insurance and will not properly cover Canadian travellers. The bottom line? Cruise insurance plans are simply not enough to cover you in the event of a medical emergency on board a ship. Watch this video to find out why! Cruise insurance: Quick facts Why are cruise insurance plans not suitable for Canadians? With American cruise lines, the plans are typically intended for American travellers who already have insurance coverage from elsewhere. These plans have low coverage limits: only $10,000 to $25,000 in…
