In order to purchase travel medical insurance, you must not have already started your trip.

You must have Provincial BC Medical Insurance in place as your primary insurance provider. Travel medical insurance is regarded as excess/supplementary insurance to the provincial plan.

Single trip coverage is available in addition to annual plans that include multiple trips throughout the year.Every province has different base levels of coverage. Your basic BC medical plan may not be enough to cover the cost differential.

Policies can be issued on a zero deductible basis with coverage limits as high as $10,000,000. Contact Valley Wide Insurance Services in Abbotsford, BC to discuss your medical insurance needs before you travel!
