It’s like your second passport.
Life has a way of interrupting our best laid travel plans. When it does, you want to know you are covered. The cost of just one medical emergency while travelling can be financially devastating. Not to mention trip cancellations and delays that can put a strain on your wallet.
Buying travel insurance is the best way to safeguard your finances when something unexpected happens during your travels. Pristine Insurance offers affordable travel insurance coverage to meet a variety of needs.
TRAVEL INSURANCE FOR CANADIANS*
Whether you’re a Snowbird, a family on vacation, a backpacker, or a cross-border shopper, you can travel feeling protected with emergency medical, trip and baggage coverage. Travel Insurance for travelling Canadians gives you a simple, affordable way to protect against the cost of unexpected emergency medical expenses and more that may happen during your trip.
Your provincial health plan only covers a fraction of healthcare expenses incurred outside Canada and limits coverage when travelling to another province. Yet illness and accidents are just a few of the all-
too-common incidents that could leave you facing significant out-of-pocket expenses when travelling.

IMMIGRANTS AND VISITORS TO CANADA
Whether you’re just visiting, applying for a Super Visa, or planning on making Canada your new home, we’re here to help provide for your emergency medical needs while in the country.
No medical questions if you are under 55 years of age.
No waiting period if you apply before you arrive in Canada or are replacing an existing health plan issued by a Canadian insurer. Without existing health coverage, there is a 2 day waiting period if you apply within 30 days of your arrival in Canada, or a 7 day waiting period if you apply more than 30 days after your arrival in Canada.
STUDENT TRAVEL INSURANCE
Are you a Canadian student planning to study abroad or an international student studying in Canada? From a campus flu outbreak to a dental emergency, anything can happen. Getting sick or injured away from the comforts of home can be especially stressful, so you’ll want to know you’re taken care.
At Pristine, we’re here to help. We’ll make sure you get the best possible medical care, so you can concentrate on what matters most, like getting your assignments in on time and making new friends!
Sports Participation Coverage
If you play on an official university sports team, you may be at an increased risk of sports-related injury. Unfortunately, your school’s insurance plan may not provide full coverage for such injuries. Sports Participation Coverage provides student athletes playing on university athletic teams with coverage over and above their school’s medical coverage.
Insurance for Canadian Students Studying Outside of Home Province or Abroad
Did you know that the full benefits of your provincial medical health plan don’t travel with you? That means if you experience an emergency outside of home province or abroad, you could be stuck with costly medical bills. In fact, most schools require you to have a medical insurance plan before you begin your classes. Click on the arrow to get a quote.
Insurance for International Students Studying in Canada
Medical and dental treatments are expensive in Canada and international students often can’t get provincial healthcare. That means if you experience an emergency, you’ll be responsible to pay for any medical care costs while you’re here. Click on the arrow to get a quote.
