Without travel medical insurance, your two–week vacation budget can easily be blown by something as basic as food poisoning, a dental cavity, or appendicitis. Even a cross–border day trip to the US can quickly turn into a medical and financial nightmare, as many hospitals in the US won’t treat you without adequate medical coverage or cash up front.
A 57–year–old Ontario woman, at her Florida vacation home, awoke in the middle of the night with acute abdominal pain.

Without Travel Medical Insurance, her out–of–pocket costs would have totalled: $88,200.00
