Saskatoon Travelers Story
Most Saskatoon residents wonder if it is worth spending the money on travel insurance especially during vacations, however, experts say that it is. One incident insured against could leave you bankrupt without travel insurance.
Shaun Weber, the northern regional coordinator for CAA Saskatchewan said that insurance is meant for emergencies and emergencies could be as simple as a twisted ankle or even a slip and fall. Medical costs in the United States could be very expensive so much that even a sprained ankle could cost you thousands of dollars. You can imagine the impact a heart attack will have on your lifesavings. It may even cost you your home.
Canadian medical system may pay for most of your medical expenses while you are home but this is not the case when you out of the country. Moreover, you can minimize insurance cost by shopping around and also checking the insurance covered by your credit card or your work benefits.
Furthermore, when shopping for Saskatoon travel insurance, you should read the fine print. Make sure you understand the age groups covered as well as the duration covered by the coverage. It is also important to review the plans to see how they apply to your situation. Even if you bought travel insurance, you will still not be covered if your doctor says you are not fit to travel, Weber added. Also, ensure that your travel insurance covers you for unforeseen events like natural disasters and terrorism.
