RV & Vehicles

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.
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.
