What To Know About The Eligibility And Insurability Of Canadian Travel Insurance

by on Sep.30, 2010, under Travel

There happens to be such a great deal of people around our planet that really love the idea of leaving their country to travel to another one. Most of their reasons are buried within a universal desire to learn about the cultures and customs of others. Because of this, we will discuss what you need to know about the eligibility and insurability of Canadian travel policies.

The first concern that many traveling families have is over the kind of great benefits that such a type of insurance policy could provide for them during their trip away from their mother land. Do not forget that the concept of you, or any member of you family, becoming seriously injured while out of the country is actually very real. If the country that you are visiting does not want to cover you medically, this type of policy could really suite you and your family quite well.

As was mentioned previously, this type of policy is not only for those people who are vacationing away from the fine country of Canada. This type of policy also works well to cover people who are visiting the fine country of Canada, and typically even first time visitors will find that many popular providers will be eager to sell them such a policy if they qualify. This helps protect people who are visiting Canada and also gives them the same benefits, including medical coverage and protection.

Before you even think about sinking any of your hard earned cash into travel insurance, please take a moment to consider that two types of policy are actually common place within this market. The first kind of travel policy that is commonly sold is what people often call the single trip policy. Keep in mind that this policy will only cover one trip or vacation. It is also important to keep in mind that this is typically all that is needed for people who do not plan on doing frequent traveling.

Another type of traveling policy that is out there is typically referred to as the multiple trip policy. As you might of already guessed, this type of policy is designed to cover more than one vacation or trip. This policy is typically purchased by a person or family that knows they will be traveling quite often. While it is more of an investment, the most important thing to consider about this type of policy is that you really save money in the long run when compared to purchasing multiple single trip policies.

Most providers will offer benefits that do not end at the concept of injuries that could occur while you travel. Another popular benefit that many of these providers offer is one that covers accidental death as well as possible air flight accidents. While nobody would like to consider that such things could occur on their watch while they are on vacation, it is very important to make sure that a policy includes such things. Nobody knows for sure what could happen and you want your family properly prepared in the event of anything.

When people take the time to consider the worst possible things that probably won’t happen but very well could, such as serious injury, or worse yet possible death, they typically wonder if any practical and common issues are covered by such policies. The good news is that a great deal of policies include practical benefits within their context, a lot of them will even cover any luggage that is either lost of stolen.

After learning just a little more about Canadian travel insurance, as well as it’s eligibility and insurability, you might want to do some additional research. Keep in mind that as far as eligibility goes, if you are already a card carrying owner of valuable insurance policies that has a positive track record, many providers will want to add you to their list of travel insurance clients.

Costa Rica – Private Vs Public Clinics

by on Apr.23, 2010, under Vacations

I was in the middle of a trip in Cahuita , Costa Rica, with my family and all of a sudden my son became sick.

While we were on the way towards Cahuita he started coughing but I thought that he’d be fine. But it turned out to be serious, he was burning up and waking up in the middle of the night crying from a sore throat.

I had lived about six years in Costa Rica and had heard about the horrors that happen in public clinics. So, I had never gone that route before, I would always go to private doctors and private hospitals, which, by the way, are fantastic.

So, I had never gone that route before, I would always go to private doctors and private hospitals, which, by the way, are fantastic. So, after running around looking for a private solution, I had to accept the fact that they were all closed and resigned to take my son to the public clinic.

They requested for my paper works and since I’m not a resident and I do not have any formal documentation, they treated me as a tourist. Luckily that helped us to see the next available doctor. Our experience there was awesome. The doctor was very good with kids, was fluent in English and extremely professional I don’t think I need to say that I was very impressed!

Then he gave us a prescription to take to the clinic’s pharmacy. The best part was when we asked how much we needed to pay and he replied, “The pleasure is all ours.” Great medical service and medication for free? I was amazed at this and compared that with the situation in United States, you can easily understand our surprise and absolute gratefulness for their generosity.

After this lovely experience, how I felt about the public hospitals has changed and filled my heart with great appreciation.

What I’m trying to say is if you do get sick in Costa Rica, know that you are in good hands!
