You’re almost set to hit the slopes on your next trip – how exciting! Before packing up your skis, make sure you’re prepared if your travel plans hit a snag. Having travel insurance can make all the difference, as one traveller learned when a ski run took her on an unexpected turn.
After taking a spill while skiing in BC, Linda was taken to the hospital by ambulance to be examined. While her doctor said she’d be fine, she would have to miss the last half of her $1,460 trip. Plus, her $530 ambulance ride wasn’t covered by her provincial health plan, so it was up to her to pay the bill. Fortunately, she had Comprehensive protection, which covered her medical expenses, the cancelled portion of her trip and emergency travel home. The cost of her Comprehensive plan* was only $119.
