The Canadian Snowbird Association exclusively endorses Medipac Travel Insurance.
Medipac Travel Insurance was first to provide coverage for COVID-19 and also has the industry’s only Vaccine Discount, saving members an additional 5%.
With MedipacMAX, Medipac also provides maximum coverage for COVID-19 – up to $5 million USD.
Following recent surveys of our members and other experienced Canadian travellers, comprehensive coverage remains the greatest concern when choosing a travel insurance plan. This is balanced by price and the emergency assistance services that support the travel insurance plan.
Why we choose Medipac
For over 30 years, Medipac has covered most stable pre-existing conditions, regardless of age (and some of our members are over 90!). Their coverage is comprehensive, their policy is written in easy-to-understand language and with their discount program, their plans provide exceptional value. Some members save up to 28%!
Also, emergency assistance services is a topic that rarely is discussed by other travel insurance providers, yet they are an essential part of any plan. There is a reason for this; most travel medical insurance plans outsource these critical services to disinterested third parties where your calls for assistance may be answered by “call-center clerks”.
Medipac Assist, on the other hand, staffs its lines with real medical professionals to answers your calls for assistance during a medical emergency while travelling. Medipac Assist is there from start to finish, offering advice, guiding patients through foreign medical systems and arranging for direct payments to providers, where possible.
From application to assistance, Medipac is by far our preferred choice for our members.
