Canada-based Scotiabank has launched its new Travel Insurance Program developed to meet the travel needs of its customers.

The new program offers comprehensive travel insurance plans to provide customers with more options in selecting the right coverage to fit their travel needs.

Scotiabank senior vice-president and head of Insurance Canada Mark Cummings said that through the new ScotiaLife program, we’ve expanded our product suite to provide customers broader coverage to choose from to suit their specific travel needs.

"We understand that customers are looking for simple, straightforward insurance solutions from a trusted source. With new ScotiaLife Travel Insurance plans that are simple to quote, simple to apply for and most importantly simple to understand, we feel that we have accomplished this goal," added Cummings.

ScotiaLife Financial offers a full range of life and health insurance products including hospitalization, critical illness, health and dental and accidental death insurance.
