RSA Insurance

Canadians are often surprised to learn that their provincial health insurance offers only extremely limited coverage for a medical emergency for those travelling out of the country, or even out of the province. A serious illness or injury while away from home is devastating, and the high cost of emergency medical treatment for the uninsured adds insult to injury.

When a simple visit to an emergency room in another country can easily generate thousands of dollars in hospital bills and other medical expenses, it becomes clear that travel insurance is a necessity, not a luxury.

Through Special Benefits Insurance Services, travellers have access to coverage from one of Canada’s largest insurers of emergency medical insurance. If you are travelling for or a few months, there is an RSA Insurance travel package to make your trip a relaxing, medically covered one.

The RSA Insurance Difference

RSA Insurance is a leading, multinational insurance group, providing insurance services for millions of customers in over a hundred different countries. In Canada, RSA is one of the top insurers, providing comprehensive, cost-effective travel insurance solutions from coast to coast.

Founded over 300 years ago, RSA aims to make things better for people. The company’s roots in Canada date back to 1833 when the company, then known as Royal Insurance, offered fire insurance to home and business owners in Toronto and Montreal. Today, RSA is the third largest property and casualty insurance company in Canada.

In partnership with an esteemed network of brokers, including Special Benefits Insurance Services, RSA protects Canadian travellers while out of the country, from the financial hardship of an accident or illness while they are away from home.

Extended Trips Outside Canada: Many health insurance packages are available to cover a few days or weeks outside the country, but if you are planning a much longer trip, like spending the winter in another country, long-term health insurance coverage will help offset emergency medical expenses while you are away from home.
