Studying in Canada? Get Covered!

A medical emergency or sudden illness while studying in Canada could ruin your school year. And without adequate coverage, the medical expenses could ruin you and your family. Tugo student travel insurance would help in these situations.

Some hospitals won’t even admit patients without proper health insurance. If they do, the costs can be astronomical. Don’t gamble with financial disaster when you can protect yourself with the most comprehensive and affordable coverage available.

Don’t wait for something to happen.

Don’t take your health for granted. Get the peace of mind. Get Student Travel Insurance.

Every time you travel outside of your home country, you may be leaving the benefits and coverage of your home health plan behind.

Citizenship and Immigration Canada

recommends that all international students studying in Canada purchase health coverage when they arrive in the country as foreign students may not be eligible for provincial health care plans.
