Why take out travel insurance for a trip to Canada?


As previously mentioned, medical fees are excessively expensive in North America.


If you are selected for the working holiday programme, you have to take out travel insurance.


PLEASE NOTE: The authorities require travellers to present an insurance certificate covering the entire duration of their stay. Canadians are very strict about this. If you arrive at the Montreal airport with 6 months of working holiday insurance, your visa will be valid for a duration of 6 months and will not be renewable. That's why you need to take out working holiday insurance for 24 months!
