In response to the increasing number of Canadians who are defying predictions of a ‘Trump slump’ and heading off on trips to the US, Zurich Canada has announced the launch of Zurich Travel Insurance, a new specially designed proposition aimed at Candians heading south – or elsewhere overseas.

The proposition, which includes cover for emergency medical and dental care, trip cancellation and/or interruption, baggage loss/damage, and flight and travel accidents, as well as 24/7 travel assistance services provided by World Travel Protection, will be offered through various distributors such as hotel chains, online travel agents and airlines. They will integrate the new offering in order to offer an overall enhanced experience for Canadian travellers.

"Canadians' health insurance does not follow them across the border,” explained John Thain, Vice-President of travel, accident and sickness at Zurich Canada, “so they need travel protection plans with medical coverage they can count on.  Our new proposition was designed to help travellers close this coverage gap.”
