Any travel agent will sell it to you, I use Flight Center to get mine...not for any specific reason just there are alot of them around in case i have a prob.

You can contact your bank aswell, they should have it there, well TD Canada Trust Bank does anyway...

There is also credit cards that come with travel ins built right into it...ask at the bank about that as well, if you traveling once a year, the annual fee might be worth it.

Yo steveo,

i just bought mine from travel cuts. They have one called Bon Voyage. I got plan B which is cancellation/interruption and medical and it costs about $364 for a year. Go to travelcuts.com

BTW i believe your the richmond boy right? I just go my plane ticket a few days ago from travelcuts on broadway. And i got it for 1683 which includes two stopovers in fiji and NZ. With tax it was $2000. tax sucks! anyways i'm leaving april 6. hope you find a good deal.
