TravelStar Sales Suspended due to Global Travel Advisory

March 13, 2020 | The Government of Canada has issued a Global Travel Advisory to avoid all non-essential travel outside of Canada to limit the spread of COVID-19. As a result, we're temporarily suspending sales of TravelStar Emergency Medical and Trip Cancellation Insurance plans effective immediately as we cannot provide coverage for claims incurred outside of Canada.

No one expects to have an accident when they’re travelling, but they do happen.

Our TravelStar® Insurance Plans give you the freedom to choose the coverage that best suits your travel needs. From emergency medical to trip cancellation insurance, we’ve covered the bases so you can get out there and enjoy your adventure.

If you're travelling the world, or even within Canada, there can be emergency medical costs that you didn’t plan for and that aren’t covered by government insurance. Our TravelStar Emergency Medical Insurance makes sure you're covered, when you need it, no matter where you are.

  • Up to $5,000,000 in coverage
  • Covers essentials including ambulance, emergency dental, hospital care and more!

Our TravelStar Trip Cancellation coverage means you can protect your investment and that when disaster strikes, you’re not alone.

Includes coverage for items such as:

  • Non-refundable airfare, pre-paid travel arrangements and cancellation penalties
  • Out-of-pocket expenses you may incur during extended delays
  • Baggage loss, damage or delay
