Lost or damaged luggage can be a major delay or expense when you are traveling. These are some of the ways travel insurance can help with the cost and stress of travel related delays or cancellations.
Travel insurance is one of the most important things to pack with you when planning your next holiday. Whether traveling within Canada or outside of Canada, you want to be sure you are able to get home in the event of an accident or illness. And be sure you are prepared if your trip has to be canceled due to a family emergency. Or perhaps you are traveling in a snowstorm and you experience delays or there are problems with the aircraft and you become separated from your luggage? Travel insurance can help you and your luggage get home safely.
