ScotiaLife Travel and Medical Insurance

Peace of mind when you are away from home

No one expects to have the unexpected happen while away from home or to cancel a trip due to an emergency. But these events happen, and they can be disruptive and expensive.

Protect yourself with ScotiaLife Travel Insurance before you leave home. ScotiaLife Travel Insurance allows you to select the coverage that best suits you and your travel plans.

We have several travel insurance plans available to best suit your needs:

Emergency Medical Insurance Plans

These plans provide you with emergency medical coverage in the event of an unexpected injury or illness.

  • ScotiaLife Single Trip Emergency Medical Plan
    When you are taking only one trip, this plan is ideal. There is also no age limit for this plan.
  • ScotiaLife Single Trip Canadian Travel Emergency Medical Plan
    Government health insurance plans have reimbursement limits on emergency medical expenses incurred while you are in another province. To ensure you have the protection you need, you should purchase additional medical coverage even while travelling within Canada.
    This plan is offered at 50% off the regular Single Trip Emergency Medical Plan rate.
  • ScotiaLife Quick Trip Emergency Medical Plan
    This plan is for individuals 55 to 74 years of age who are travelling for 17 days or less.
  • ScotiaLife Multi Trip Emergency Medical Plan
    If you are travelling more than once in a 12 month period, a Multi Trip plan provides coverage for an unlimited number of trips over a one year period. Options for trip durations include 4, 10, 18 and 30 days.
    You typically only have to travel twice in one year and the cost of your Multi Trip plan would pay for itself.

Non-Emergency Medical Plans

  • ScotiaLife Single Trip Cancellation & Interruption Plan
    If you must cancel your trip due to an unexpected covered event, this plan provides you with coverage up to $1,500 for your non refundable pre-paid travel expenses.
    If your trip is interrupted due to a covered event, this plan provides coverage up to $3,500 for costs incurred. Trip Cancellation is also available up to $3,500.
    To be eligible to purchase a ScotiaLife Trip Cancellation & Interruption Plan: you must be living in Canada or travelling through Canada, and purchase this insurance within seven (7) days of booking your trip or before any cancellation penalties are chargeable for your trip.
