We started Canadian Travel Insurance Review after searching for travel insurance for our family of four. After many hours on the web, we became frustrated by the lack of clear, unbiased information comparing travel insurance for Canadians.
Most of the websites out there are in the business of selling travel insurance for a specific company. They don’t provide reviews of specific travel insurance companies, and don’t let you compare travel insurance companies side by side.
Canadian Travel Insurance Review was created to provide comprehensive, informative and unbiased reviews of travel insurance companies.
We do not sell travel insurance on this site, and we think that’s a good thing. Because we don’t specifically sell one type of insurance, we can provide unbiased reviews of the different Canadian travel insurance companies. Please see our Disclaimer.
As frequent travellers, we know the importance of good travel insurance first hand. While we’ve never had a life-threatening health emergency (knock on wood) we have had to deal with the claims process after spending three days in a hospital in Thailand for kidney infection. We (luckily) had a good insurance policy, and didn’t have to pay a dime out of pocket. Our goal is to help you make an informed, fair choice when choosing travel insurance in Canada.
*As always, the information on this page is from one Canadian traveller to another. We have spent years abroad and have gotten to know the ins and outs of the industry however we are not travel insurance agents. If you have any travel insurance questions, please talk to a qualified travel insurance agent or broker. Finally, policies and plans can and do change all the time, without warning, so always consult your insurance policy since that is the legal document to which you are agreeing to.
