"Alberta school boards were on the lookout for a product that meets the demands for protection of their travelling students and chaperones,” said international student account manager at Ingle International Stephanie Hiltz. “Ingle International has supported inbound international students in Alberta for a number of years; so the extension to support outbound Canadian students from Alberta felt natural."
Ingle International has created a custom travel insurance website to support the plan. The company said the website provides policy information, optional additional plans for family members and non-school travellers, and consumer-friendly content.
According to Ingle International, key benefits of the Canadian Student Travel Insurance Plan include: trip cancellation and interruption, whereby pre-paid, non-refundable trip costs prior to departure and coverage for unforeseen travel expenses post-departure are protected; emergency medical, with coverage for expenses related to unforeseen sickness and injury provided; and duty of care, which encompasses mobile security alerts, real-time traveller tracking, and two-way communication.
