Emergency Medical Insurance
No one ever plans to need medical care while away; but if you do experience misadventures on your vacation, Emergency Medical Coverage can cover hospitalization, surgery, prescriptions, emergency transportation home and more.
We recommend that Visitors to Canada and Travelling Canadians out of their home province purchase Emergency Medical Insurance to protect against unexpected hospital and physician’s expenses if you have a medical emergency. This covers sudden and unexpected illness or injury and it includes air and ground ambulance/evacuation to the nearest medical facility.
Life is full of surprises and so is travel! You can’t predict a missed flight connection, job loss , death of a family member or your own illness or injury. When an unexpected event prevents you from travelling, Trip Cancellation/Trip Interruption reimburses travel (airfare, accommodation) costs if your trip is cancelled before you leave or disrupted after it has begun.
To avoid any financial hardship that an unexpected cancellation or interruption could cause, we strongly recommend purchasing Trip Cancellation/Interruption to protect your trip investment. Trip Cancellation/Interruption costs about 5% of your trip cost and it’s worth the peace of mind!
Visiting Canada as a Tourist
Most people need a Visa or an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) to fly to or transit through Canada. (US Citizens will only require a passport).
Be prepared: Apply for an eTA as soon as possible. Most applicants are approved within minutes. However, there is the possibility of a delay or a denial.
It is recommended you arrange your eTA as soon as possible to pre-determine your entry status.
TransRockies Race Series is not responsible, or liable to make any refunds, for guests who are denied an eTA. Note that a denied or delayed eTA or denied entry at the Canadian Border is not covered by Travel Insurance.
Backcountry or regional restriction/closure or evacuation due to wildfire, state of emergency or civil authority, that cause you to interrupt or cancel your vacation is not covered by insurance.
