North American Air Travel Insurance Agents Ltd. doing business as TuGo® is a licensed insurance agency in all Canadian provinces and territories.
TuGo is a third-party administrator of travel insurance products and services. We develop and administer a variety of travel insurance plans for Canadian business and leisure travellers, visitors to Canada and international students. TuGo is not the insurer (underwriter).
OneWorld Assist Inc. doing business as Claims at TuGo is our claims and assistance provider and performs all assistance services and administers claims on our behalf under this policy. Claims at TuGo provides ISO 9001:2015 certified service.
At TuGo, our mission is to help travellers have better experiences. TuGo specializes in products and services that enhance and enable travel. Founded in 1964, TuGo understands its customers’ needs and is driven to provide top-rated service how, when and where its customers want it.
TuGo's insurance policies are underwritten by the following insurers:
Claimants can dispute denials and are asked to submit their dispute in writing.
All disputes are reviewed by the examiner and a member of the Claims Management team. If additional information is provided which supports the dispute, the denial may be overturned.
If no new information is provided, the claim and the denial dispute are also reviewed by members of the Claims Dispute Panel, which may include the Claims Administration Director, the Chief Claims Officer and the Business and Insurance Services Director. If the denial is maintained, a letter from the Claims Administration Supervisor is sent to the claimant explaining that the denial was maintained and why the basis of the dispute did not change the outcome.
If the denial is disputed again, the claim will be reviewed by the Claims Administration Director and additional members of the Claims Dispute Panel. If denial is maintained, an additional letter will be sent to the claimant from the Claims Administration Director, again explaining the basis of the denial and why the dispute did not change the outcome.
While we endeavour to consider and resolve all complaints on a timely basis, in the event you remain unsatisfied, you may refer your complaint to the main underwriter Industrial Alliance. Please click here for a copy of their complaint procedures.
If you remain dissatisfied with the final decision of the Insurer’s Complaints Officer, you may request that your complaint be transferred as appropriate.
The OmbudService for Life & Health Insurance (OLHI) deals with concerns about life and health insurance products and services that have not been resolved through the insurer’s dispute resolution system.
