Look for TRIP Certified Travel Professionals

TRIP stands for the Travel Insurance Program. The 12-part TRIP course was developed in 2019 by industry experts for the Travel Health Insurance Association of Canada (THIA). It is the only comprehensive training program specifically designed for the Canadian Travel Insurance industry.

Achieving the TRIP certification provides your salesperson with the knowledge and understanding of all aspects of the Canadian Travel Insurance industry to be able to support you as the customer and clearly explain all the details of the product including coverage and exclusions so you know what you are buying. TRIP’s full training on claims handling means your TRIP certified salesperson will be able to help you navigate that process should it be necessary.

When you purchase your travel insurance from a TRIP certified salesperson you know you are dealing with an individual who is committed to the Canadian travel insurance industry and has invested the time to distinguish themselves. They understand the coverage options available and can help you make the right choice for your travel insurance needs and those of others travelling with you. Be confident and ask for the TRIP designation.
