Title : Who can buy Travelex travel insurance?

Travelex Insurance provides travel insurance for Canadians looking to protect both domestic (outside your province of residence) and international trips. However, to purchase either a single or multi-trip Travelex Insurance policy, Canadian travellers must meet some eligibility requirements.

You’re eligible to buy Travelex travel insurance if you:

  • are a resident of Canada and covered under a government health insurance plan for the entire duration of your trip

  • are at least thirty (30) days of age but less than seventy-five (75) years of age

  • have not been advised by a physician to avoid travel at this time

  • do not have a terminal illness for which a physician has estimated you have less than six (6) months to live

  • do not have metastatic cancer (cancer that has spread from the original site to another place in your body)

  • do not require kidney dialysis

  • have not been prescribed or used home oxygen in the last twelve (12) months

  • have never had bone marrow, stem cell or organ transplant (except corneal transplant)

  • have accurately and fully completed the medical questionnaire (if required)

These eligibility requirements apply to all three plans Travelex Insurance offers: Trip Cancellation & Interruption, Medical Only, and All-Inclusive.
