In addition to providing great financial solutions for millions of Canadians, Insurdinary is now taking even more steps to further educate our customer base and loyal readers. We are doing this by collecting real life data, from people just like you. There’s no better way to understand the market than to simply ask the question, and that’s exactly why we have and will continue to hit the streets of major Canadian cities to conduct polls.
Our mission is to gather your thoughts, your opinions and your feedback on a variety of important subjects in order to provide a more comprehensive service to you and your families.
On August 25, 2022, Insurdinary's research staff set out to conduct their third survey with 40 people on the subject of if people knew someone who has been injured or hospitalized on vacation. The results were staggering!
When asked "Do you know someone who has been injured or hospitalized on vacation?" 77.5% of people said yes, and 22.5% of people said no.
Of the folks that were spoken to:
16 were males - 13 said yes, 3 said no
24 were females - 18 said yes, 6 said no
18 of those people were 18-29 years of age
7 of those people were 30-55 years of age
15 of those people were 55+
There seemed to be a pretty clear majority, as many people either ended up in the hospital themselves or knew someone. People also shared some interesting stories with us about the different injuries people they knew sustained while on vacation.
Some of the reasons that people ended up in the hospital on vacation were:
Hospitalized for panic attack
Gall bladder explosion
Hit in the head with a coconut
Major stubbed toe
Fell off a balcony
Stepped on a sea urchin
There are a multitude of unexpected ways one could injure themselves on vacation and end up in the hospital. Medical bills abroad can be incredibly costly. Paying out of pocket can not only put a damper on your much deserved vacation, but also on your wallet. This data is proof that life can be unpredictable. It just goes to show you the importance of investing in Travel Insurance before you go on vacation.
