CAA Travel Insurance

CAA Manitoba recommends emergency medical insurance for anyone travelling anywhere outside of Manitoba, because not all medical expenses may be covered by our provincial health plan. Depending on your travel plans, you may require coverage for trip cancellation or interruption, baggage insurance or even car rental coverage.

CAA Travel Insurance also offers a member discount, deductible options, and cancel for any reason coverage.
