When booking your holiday for Canada it is vital that you are protected against unforeseen circumstances, that's why Canadian Affair has teamed up with ETI-International Travel Protection. To offer you piece of mind while in Canada.
For your safety and peace of mind we strongly recommend taking out comprehensive travel insurance when you book your holiday.
Medical treatment in North America can be very expensive, but our insurance policies are designed to help free you from worry, take care of any bills and let you relax. If comparing our policy against those offered by the credit card companies, please bear in mind that their coverage is often only applicable for the journey itself. Medical expenses, cancellation and curtailment (the most often needed) are rarely included.
We have combined our specialist knowledge of Canada with the expertise of insurance underwriter ETI-International Travel Protection, authorised and regulated by the Financial Service Authority.
We want you to enjoy your holiday as much as you can – there are lots of exciting possibilities in Canada so don’t let your travel insurance hold you back. You can add an insurance to your booking once you have selected your transatlantic flight.
