Canadians are travelling overseas in ever-increasing numbers. Whatever your age or destination, appropriately preparing before you leave and staying in good health while travelling can help you to have a happy and enjoyable trip.When you travel abroad, you leave behind Canada’s support systems, emergency service capabilities and medical facilities.
Make sure you buy Travel Insurance that covers all medical expenses for injury or illness, as well as theft of valuables, damage to baggage, and cancellations or interruptions to flight plans. Fully disclose any pre-existing medical conditions in writing. It will save you worry and possible financial hardship. Medical costs overseas can be in the tens of thousands of dollars and many families have been burdened financially in paying these costs when things go wrong.
