Coverage for COVID-19 Related Expenses

Options Available from Travel Insurance for CARP Members

We’re experiencing extremely high call volumes due to the government resuming its Level 3 Advisories to avoid all non-essential travel to all international countries. We apologize for any delay and thank you for your patience.

Because of the Canadian Government’s Level 3 Advisories to avoid all non-essential travel to all international destinations, our Travel Choice 2 Single & Multi-Trip Emergency Medical Plans currently have exclusions in place for expenses related to COVID-19 for out-of-country travel. You will be covered for COVID-19 related expenses for in-Canada travel. Exclusions are also in place for all Trip Cancellation & Interruption Insurance policies.

When the Government of Canada Level 3 Advisories are lifted, COVID-19 related expenses will again be covered by our Travel Choice 2 out-of-country emergency medical insurance policies to a maximum of $10 million CDN.

If you’re planning to travel to a country with a Level 3 Advisory, please call toll-free and speak with our licensed specialists about your coverage options for COVID-19 related expenses, including:
