TuGo Covid-19 Travel Insurance

by GO GlobeHopper

Canadian-owned and operated travel insurance provider TuGo has announced COVID-19 coverage for both vaccinated and unvaccinated Canadian travelers.

TuGo’s Emergency Medical Insurance includes coverage, up to the policy limit, for COVID-19 medical and related expenses if the traveler:

  • Has been partially vaccinated with a Health Canada approved dose at least 14 days before their departure date
  • If available to them, they’ve received or scheduled any subsequent vaccine doses before departing
  • Isn’t yet eligible for a vaccine due to their age

This coverage is applicable while the government of Canada’s level 3 travel advisory is in place, and travelers must follow their provincial/territorial health authority’s vaccination protocols.

For Canadian travelers who are unvaccinated for any other reason than age, they can still get coverage by adding TuGo’s new COVID-19 Insurance – Unvaccinated plan to their Emergency Medical plan. The Unvaccinated plan includes COVID-19 emergency medical and related quarantine expenses during Canada’s level 3 travel advisory, with coverage up to $1 million, if the unvaccinated traveler tests positive for and is diagnosed with COVID-19 while on their trip. It also includes a Trip Interruption benefit if the Government of Canada’s travel advisory changes to a Level 4 (avoid all travel) during their trip and they choose to come home early.

To further support Canadian travelers, TuGo is also offering Canadians 15 months of travel coverage for the price of 12 on annual travel insurance plans.
