A. Travel Insurance is so important and highly recommended by Unforgettable Escapes. The
investment you have made to create unforgettable memories could be lost if you do not insure your investment.
Travel Insurance is meant to cover unexpected and unforeseen situations that
may cause you to have to cancel or interrupt your travel plans. This includes unexpected and
unforeseen situations that are completely out of your control, such as political, social, economical and health issues at the destination you plan to travel to or are travelling in.
Different policies exist, based on your needs and policies vary with their coverage and what is considered a covered risk.
There are all inclusive policies and Non-medical packages (if you have emergency medical
coverage elsewhere), which we recommend, that include; Cancellation, Interruption, Emergency Medical, Baggage Loss or Delay, Travel Accident. You can also purchase these components separately, but they may cost more. Travel Insurance may be available through your group benefits at work or on a credit card.
Please review their policies, as they can be restrictive and not
provide the minimum coverage recommended. Travel Insurance costs are based on the length of stay, outside of your home province, cost of the package and your age.
We will provide you with an exact quote based on your specific details, as well as the coverage available, so you can make an informed decision on the best option for you.
