Summer isn’t over yet, but winters in Toronto don’t play around. So naturally, we’re already dreaming of a warm and tropical getaway for when the colder months hit. Just picture a vacation with sun, sand, and crystal blue waters. Your coworkers will be so jealous when you come back with a sunburn in the middle of January. The best part is we also know how you can save a ton on your travel insurance.

Now, before you say anything, we get it. Travel insurance is one of the last things you consider when planning a trip. The hotel and excursions are so much more shiny and exciting. The problem is you end up overpaying because you’re in a mad rush to get your insurance last minute. Oops. There’s a better way, and it can save you hundreds of dollars on your next trip.

Speaking of scuba-diving, we promise the adventurers aren’t left out! soNomad offers coverage for a wide variety of sports and activities, from skiing to surfing and more. This means you can indulge your passions and try something new without worrying that your insurance will leave you high and dry.

Even if you’re not an adrenaline junkie, travel insurance protects you in case of the unexpected. Twist your ankle on some cobblestones while wearing a pair of beautiful (if ill-advised) heels? No problem. Got a little too over-confident at the beach volleyball match? The only lasting bruise will be your ego. If you’re a Canadian travelling in the United States, even a minor medical visit can cost you thousands. Why not play it safe?
