If you travel outside the province, travel insurance is indispensable for peace of mind on your trip. In fact, if you fall ill or have an accident, medical costs can really add up. However, these are not necessarily covered by your health insurance plan or the insurance that comes with your credit card.
This is why the Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec (RAMQ) recommends that all citizens who travel outside Quebec protect themselves with travel insurance for health care received within or outside Canada. Otherwise, you could quickly burn through your savings.
