Both humans and birds are known to migrate south every fall and winter to escape harsh weather in the north for warmer climates. The difference is that birds don't need to worry about hefty medical bills if something unexpected happens en route or at their destination. For human snowbirds, travel insurance can help protect you on your journey, whether you're piling everything in an RV and setting the GPS for Miami or taking a direct flight down to Cancun, we have a plan to fit your needs.
Many snowbirds are Canadians trading subzero temperatures for sunny beaches in the United States, Mexico and the Caribbean. Canadian health insurance will provide coverage for citizens should they get sick or injured at home, but when traveling outside of Canada, domestic insurance is no longer there to provide coverage.
Healthcare in the United States is extremely expensive. Even a simple doctor visit could cost hundreds of dollars and a hospital stay could mean bills in the hundreds of thousands. A comprehensive travel medical insurance plan can help ensure that you're covered if anything should happen. Forgoing medical coverage could be a costly mistake, in terms of both health and finances, especially because many snowbirds are retired seniors.
