Travel Insurance Packages

RBC offers a range of travel insurance packages. These include Single Trip packages (Deluxe Package, TravelCare® Package, Travel within Canada Package, and a Non-Medical Package). There are also Multi-Trip Annual plans (Deluxe Package Multi-Trip Annual Plan and TravelCare® Package Multi-Trip Annual Plan). There’s also a package rider upgrade, which increases the Delay of Baggage & Personal Effects Benefit, among other things. 

RBC also offers travel medical insurance plans. The travel medical insurance plans include the Classic Medical Single Trip and TravelCare® Medical Single Trip Plan. Multi-trip annual travel insurance plans include the Classic Medical Multi-Trip Annual Plan, the TravelCare® Medical Multi-Trip Annual Plan, and the 4-Day Getaway Multi-Trip Annual Medical Plan.

There are also Trip Cancellation & Interruption and Visitors to Canada plans.


Depending on the insurance you bought, you may be able to get a refund from RBC. RBC offers a 10 Day Free Look option to cancel your purchase. The 10-Day Free Look is only available if you haven’t left for your trip or experienced a situation for which you would need to submit a claim.  

Generally, you will not get a refund if a claim has been paid, incurred or reported, or you have already left on your trip. Check your policy for refund details.

Travel HealthProtector® Insurance for RBC Clients

RBC used to offer Travel HealthProtector® Insurance. However, on May 01, 2020, Travel HealthProtector was replaced with new products, highlighted in our Travel Insurance Packages section. 

These changes have benefitted RBC clients as there are now more choices, trip cancellation and interruption is available as a package or separate plan, and the medical questionnaire is shorter than before.
