Travel & TravelMate Insurance

Whether you’re travelling the world or staying in Western Canada, Travel Insurance provides relief if an unexpected medical emergency, flight cancellation, lost luggage or damage to a rental vehicle occurs.

We believe our TravelMate product is the best in the business, and we think you'll agree.
Getting the right coverage has never been easier, as TravelMate has no age limit and provides free automatic coverage for travel within Canada, optional pre-existing coverage, more deductible options and claims-free or companion discounts can be applied.
Travel Insurance will supplement your provincial health plan, which provides insufficient coverage for most claims incurred outside your home province – it could result in saving thousands of dollars in out-of-pocket medical and living expenses.
Choose TravelMate and receive many benefits, including the following:
  • Up to $10 million coverage for emergency medical treatment including hospital, doctors’ fees, x-rays, lab work and diagnostic services.
  • $150,000 coverage - for unstable pre-existing medical conditions
  • 10% annual renewal discount
  • 5% companion discount
  • Emergency air transportation to Canada or the nearest medical facility
  • Return of travelling companion if you are transported home
  • Return of vehicle in a medical emergency
  • Direct payment to the hospital
  • Coordinated payment with most provincial government plans

At Western Financial Group, we are committed to providing you with a competitive rate, the best coverage, a fair claim and better peace of mind.
