Navigating Our New Normal

Updated October 22, 2020

The impact of COVID-19 has been felt by individuals and businesses across the globe. In these extraordinary times, it has been heartening to witness the ways we’ve come together as a global community to flatten the curve of the virus and protect those at the most risk among us.

As both the federal and provincial governments announce their phased reopening plans for businesses and social gatherings, we want to assure you that we’re continuing to take a cautious, thoughtful approach to supporting our employees, their families, you – our customers, and our communities. To help us stay connected with you during this time, please contact us to update your account with an email address.

Got COVID-19 related questions for us? Below are some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) that we hope you find helpful. We will continue to update the list of FAQs as we have new information to share. If you have questions that aren’t answered here, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

What is the best way for me to make a payment during this time?

We’re encouraging customers to make payments for their insurance premiums through online banking or by using a credit card and contacting us at 1-844-929-4768. If you must send your payment by cheque, please have it made payable to the insurance company and mail it directly to their office for expedited handling.

What if I’ve been financially impacted by COVID-19?

We understand that this is a challenging time for everyone. Our top priority remains your safety and well-being. As the situation with COVID-19 continues to evolve, we will work with our insurers to help provide assistance specific to your needs.

Claims

What happens if I need to make a claim? Will it still be handled?

If you need to start a home, vehicle, or business claim, our team is able to support you as usual. Please give us a call at 1-844-929-4768, send us an email, or report it online. You can also report a claim using our Client Portal.

RV & Vehicles

I bought a trailer but can’t pick it up, can you still insure it while it’s at the dealership?

Yes, please contact us at 1-844-929-4768 or by email with your information, and we will work with you to find a solution specific to your unique requirements.

What campgrounds and parks are open for RVers?

As provinces across Canada enter their various phases of reopening and easing on COVID-19 related restrictions, we’ve put together a guide to help you navigate the quickly evolving situation.

What if my RV is temporarily stuck in the USA due to a border closure?

If you are already a customer of Wayfarer and your RV has been temporarily left unoccupied in the USA as a result of COVID-19 border closures please give us a call to discuss extending coverage to these units. Your circumstances may be unique so speak with a broker to ensure you’re properly covered.

Travel

What is COVID-19 Insurance?

TuGo recently announced that their COVID-19 Insurance will be available for purchase starting October 28th. In preparation, they’ve put together an FAQ document containing important eligibility and business rules, as well as coverage details. 

What coverage do I have with my TuGo policy during this time?

TuGo recognizes a travel advisory when it’s issued by the Government of Canada. While it’s safe to travel under Level 1 and Level 2 travel advisories, the two highest risk levels, “avoid non-essential travel” (Level 3) and “avoid all travel” (Level 4) have implications on your travel insurance coverage. Find out more by downloading “COVID-19 Coverage for TuGo Policies”.

I have travel insurance questions. Can you help?

We know that it’s a worrisome time right now, and our travel insurance partner, TuGo, is right there with you. They’re doing what they can to alleviate questions and concerns. To ensure you understand how travel insurance is impacted by COVID-19, and to alleviate some calls into their Customer Service, TuGo put together some detailed FAQs.
