PRESS RELEASE: TuGo Launches COVID-19 Travel Insurance for Canadians

TuGo, one of Canada’s top travel insurance providers, has launched COVID-19 Insurance for Canadians planning to fly abroad during the pandemic.

TuGo’s newest insurance product covers COVID-19 emergency medical care and quarantine expenses up to $500,000, if the traveller tests positive for and is diagnosed with COVID-19 while on their trip. It also offers a Trip Interruption benefit if the Government of Canada’s current Level 3 “avoid non-essential travel” advisory changes to a Level 4 “avoid all travel”, during the trip and the traveller chooses to come home early.

“While we recommend following the Government of Canada’s Level 3 travel advisory, TuGo also recognizes that family, business or other reasons may require some Canadians to travel abroad during the pandemic,” states Brad Dance, TuGo’s Chief Customer Officer and the Travel Health Insurance Association’s Past President. “For those planning to travel, they should take time to research the various COVID-19 insurance options that have come to market in recent weeks, to ensure they best fit their needs.”

TuGo® Travel Insurance is available for Canadians, visitors to Canada and international students, through its national network of insurance partners. For more information, visit
