TRAVEL INSURANCE GLOSSARY
It can be difficult to know what type of travel insurance you need.
Here is a short glossary of the coverage that is often included in a travel insurance plan:
Trip cancellation insurance reimburses you if you must cancel your trip for any of the reasons stipulated in the contract. Illness, death and accident are the most common causes of trip cancellation.
Medical insurance includes several components. The most important of these are:
Hospitalization: Medical insurance covers hospital expenses abroad. Note that hospital expenses are very high in Canada and North America. Get insurance with coverage of at least $200,000 (or unlimited).
Prescription drugs: Medical insurance covers prescription drugs in the event of accident or illness.
Repatriation: Medical repatriation insurance will arrange for you to return home to receive care in the event of injury or serious illness, and will arrange for the return of deceased remains back to the place of residence in the event of death. Exact coverage varies from one insurance policy to another.
Civil liability: Civil liability insurance covers expenses due to injury to a 3rd person or damage to that person's property. The amount of coverage often depends on the type of damages.
In the event of loss, damage or theft of luggage, the insurance company will reimburse the depreciated value of your lost, damaged or stolen possessions in accordance with the terms of the contract.
