InsureMyTrip Explains Travel Insurance for Canadian Campers

/EIN News/ -- TORONTO, May 22, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As Canada's camping season commences, enthusiasts are set to enjoy some of the world's most breathtaking natural reserves and vast wilderness areas. With the camping industry projected to generate $331 million this year, shares vital tips for a secure and enjoyable experience.

Key Safety Recommendation for Campers:

  • Food Safety - Campers are advised to store food securely away from tents and elevated off the ground to prevent wildlife encounters.

  • Fire Compliance - During dry conditions, be vigilant of fire bans and maintain clean surroundings to prevent wildfires.

  • Protection Against Poisonous Plants - Wear protective clothing and carry remedies like calamine lotion when hiking through areas with potential plant hazards.

  • High Altitude Health Precautions - Stay hydrated and be aware of altitude sickness symptoms such as headaches and nausea.

  • Emergency Medical Travel Insurance - If you are travelling to another province, territory, or country to camp, your Canadian Government Health Insurance Plan may only partially protect you.  An All-Inclusive policy is a good way to protect you from costly medical emergencies and other unexpected travel-related issues like trip cancellation/interruption and baggage loss/delay. 

Understanding Travel Insurance for Campers:
Travel insurance can help cover various unexpected issues that can occur while camping.

  • Campsite Reservation Costs - Prepaid, non-refundable campsite reservations can be insured.

  • Camper/RV Rental Fees - Similar coverage applies for pre-booked, non-refundable RV rental fees.

  • Travel Complication - Coverage may include trip cancellations or interruptions due to accidents, breakdowns, or road closures.

  • Natural Disasters - Depending on the policy, coverage might extend to situations where a campsite becomes uninhabitable due to natural events, contingent on travel advisories.

It’s extremely important to read through and understand what a policy does and does not cover.  If you have any questions, InsureMyTrip’s licensed Customer Care representatives can walk you through a plan, so you better understand what you’re buying.
