Why buy Canada travel insurance?
While living in Canada, Government Health Insurance Plan (GHIP) may not be available to you right away or at all. We know that health care costs in Canada can be expensive if you’re not covered under a Canadian GHIP. Canadian inpariate insurance from the experts at Allianz Global Assistance helps you stay protected during a medical emergency. Be sure to carry Canadian inpatriate insurance to safeguard your finances and enjoy a worry-free trip.
