Best Value Travel Insurance For Canadian Snowbirds
A large segment of Canadian seniors often referred to as “Snowbirds” are traveling out of the country during our Canadian winters. These trips can be from a few weeks to several months in duration and as such, many retirees choose to get travel insurance to protect their health when traveling abroad.
Snowbird (people), as defined in Wikipedia, “A snowbird is someone from the Canada who spends a large portion of winter in warmer locales such as California, Arizona, Florida, Texas, or elsewhere along the Sun Belt of the southern and southwest United States, Mexico, and areas of the Caribbean. Snowbirds are typically retirees who wish to avoid the snow and cold temperatures of northern winter, but maintain ties with family and friends by staying there the rest of the year.”
Being away from “home” (their principal residence in Canada since many have their second homes in these warmer climates) and not being covered by a travel or health insurance plan, with a medical emergency or other challenge at hand can be daunting. It’s the financial stress and cash flow problem that nobody really wants.
So, before you leave for your stay down south or wherever else you call your second home, take a few minutes to have your travel and health insurance coverages in place, just in case you may need it.
