Travel insurance for working abroad in Canada?

Postby watford » Mon Apr 04, 2011 8:12 pm

Hello, I am working abroad in Canada for a year. Unfortunately I need travel insurance which they quote at £430! It needs to be for the whole year not multi-travel i.e not leaving every 30 days etc. I looked at direct line and got it down to £239 but it still seems slightly expensive. Does anyone know of a reputable company that is cheaper than that? Your help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance

I don't know why you think it would be cheaper than that - it has to include medical cover and repatriation which could be very expensive. Check that the Direct Line policy actually allows you to work as a lot of standard travel policies don't.

also have a look at Nomads Travel insurance which does allow work.

There is a difference between travel insurance and having cover for a year of actual employment within a country. Have you studied the fine print to see that you are covered when in employment on a continual basis?

You need to tread carefully with this one and may benefit from talking to the companies rather than just filling it out on line.

The amount you have been quoted is less than £20 a month. It is peanuts compared with what you will covered for and what you may have to have paid out in the event of the claim.
Your other option is to use the companies that cover back packers and our more used to this type of travel
