I had a few questions of my own and Lauren from Reviews.com provided some helpful answers. Read on if you want to know more.
Do these policies apply to non U.S. residents?
Travelex (http://www.travelex.ca/CA/Home/) and Allianz (https://www.allianz-assistance.ca/en/) offer travel insurance through their Canadian sites.
I got a less straightforward answer when I browsed the IMG site, it seems that non-US residents would need to choose an "international" plan. For example, this is an excerpt from their "Vacation Insurance Plans" page (https://www.imglobal.com/vacation-insurance):
John Hancock's coverage seemed to be limited to the US, as pulling a quote from their site prompted me to input my state of residence without the option to change the country.
Within the Adventurers coverage, do you know if there are elevation limitations?
For example, I have had trouble finding coverage for trekking. Key markers for policies tend to be over 3,000 metres, over 6,000 metres and whether any mountaineering is done such as use of crampons or ropes across a glacier.
As far as the insurance we indicated for Adventurers (IMG), I live chatted with one of their service reps today online. Per that conversation, they cover up to 4500m. When asked about the use of mountaineering equipment (crampons/ropes, etc.), they advised that their low-level plan did not cover adventure sports such as trekking but the LX plan does. I would still advise anyone looking to purchase these plans to discuss with an agent to ensure they are covered.
