I got travel insurance for the US, and so glad I did! I injured my knee and the cost would have been $5200 for an emergency visit to the hospital and x-rays. My Tugo insurance covered everything, and they were wonderful helping me through the claim. Thanks!

Keegan was so kind to go above and beyond for me, she was able to renew my insurance at the last minute as I had not realized it was about to expire, all while keeping great and light conversation. She was efficient, professional & extremely helpful! I recommend Kootenay insurance 10/10
