This year has been a little difficult for those of us who want to travel responsibly, even from a future planning perspective. The Canadian government's blanket advisory has not been accompanied with any sort of timeline or even criteria for potential change, with many travel insurance policies excluding coverage under such status.
Since the end of August, however, the suppliers themselves seem to be stepping up to the mark. First Air Canada Vacations then WestJet, now Air Canada and Sunwing.
Manulife, our own travel insurance partner for Canadian travellers here at Odyssean Travel has also announced their own coverage will be available at some time during October. Details to be confirmed.
I can't comment on specific policy aspects, but this is certainly welcome news. If you've lost out on your vacation away this year, you may have several choices for your next trip!
