Travel Insurance going to Canada

 Canada (Capital Ottawa ) is a very popular destination with nearly 3/4 million UK visitors each year. Travel Insurance is expensive as insurance companies, almost without exception, rate Canada as being in the highest area. As well as independent and backpacker travel insurance, many elderly (over 65, 70, 75, 80, 85) people visit Canada for long stay with their children/ grandchildren and very few insurance companies cover trips for more than three months. Canada also offers some great winter sports - travellers should check that their winter sports travel insurance covers the specific activities planned.

Countries Bordering Canada
