Going away for the winter on vacation? Make sure your home is covered.

Posted by Farrell Agencies on February 14, 2018

Did you know that you may not be covered in the event of a sudden and accidental escape of water during the winter while you are on vacation?

There are certain things you can do to ensure you are still covered, however it varies by company. Some of these things may include, but are not limited to:

  • Shutting off the water supply to your dwelling and/or private structures and draining all the pipes, attached fixtures and appliances
  • Arranging to have someone enter and check on your dwelling within a set time (daily, every 3 days, etc.)
  • Have your dwelling monitored 24 hours a day by a company that monitors temperature and/or water

Since each company has different requirements as to the length of time away, how often the dwelling needs to be checked, and what needs to be monitored, please contact our office for a detailed understanding of your policy and how to maintain coverage while you are away for extended periods of time.

Travel Insurance

While traveling outside of Canada, emergency medical expenses are generally not covered by the provincial medical plan. While traveling in Canada outside Saskatchewan, some medical and paramedical expenses may only be partially covered. For millions of Canadians, comprehensive emergency travel coverage is an essential part of their travel arrangements.
