While many of us are longing for the warm Caribbean sun, it seems that the topical waters will be out of reach for the foreseeable future. However, there are still plenty of amazing destinations within Canada to help ease your travel craving. If you’re planning an out-of-province getaway, don’t forget to pack CAA Travel Insurance.

As a resident of Ontario, the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) covers hospitalization, doctor expenses, and emergency surgery across Canada, however that coverage does not extend to ambulance transportation, emergency dental treatment, and other services outside of Ontario. CAA Travel Insurance helps to fill the gaps where OHIP coverage is limited.
