Trip Cancellation Insurance

Protect your investment

A trip can be considered an investment and if you are planning to travel, you should protect that investment from unexpected and uncontrollable events that may require you to cancel it.

Travel cancellation may provide the reimbursement of the value of your trip if you cancel it or interrupt it while you are travelling out of your province of residence.


A cancellation insurance provides coverage at time of purchase of your policy up to the day you leave on your trip. Should you have to cancel your trip due to unexpected or unforeseen covered risks such as the death of an immediate family member, this coverage can help cover non-refundable pre-paid travel costs.


Travel interruption insurance provides coverage while you are on your trip and you experience unexpected or unforeseen travel interruptions such as a death in the family, or your scheduled carrier is delayed by weather conditions.

How does that coverage work?

It reimburses forfeited, non-refundable or unused payments or deposits if travellers must cancel or interrupt their trip due to a covered reason.

Can I cancel my travel for any reason and get all my money back?

Not all reasons are covered.

In order for this insurance to apply, the cancellation or interruption of your covered trip must result from an unforeseen event occurring during your coverage period that prevents you from traveling.

Is it the right fit for you?

Trip cancellation insurance as a standalone policy does not include any emergency medical or hospital benefit.

If you also require emergency medical coverage we strongly recommend you select an all inclusive travel insurance package.
