Snowbirds as well as ordinary Canadians escaping the chilly winter climate!

A 'snowbird' is often defined as a Canadian who flies south for a significant portion of the winter. Typically, they are retired or have some other means of being able to be away for a long period of time. But it seems that there are many other travellers, rather than just the typical snowbird travellers, who like to escape the chilly winter climate, and for longer periods too.

Because we all have a little snowbird travel bug in us ...

Why not escape the freezing cold this winter and find a tropical hot spot? If you do plan to escape the winter wrath this year by heading south for more than a month, you should consider these Canadian snowbird travel tips when planning your vacation. Snowbird travelling is for all of us alike, and the good news is that snowbird travel insurance - that is travel insurance for anyone going anywhere to escape the mounds of snow and ice - is available through KANETIX.

Did you know that there are gaps in the coverage provided to Canadians through Provincial and Territorial Health Insurance Plans, that may leave you considerably out of pocket under certain conditions when travelling out of province but still travelling within Canada?

If you are planning on travelling over the border to the U.S. for pleasure or for business or cross border shopping whether by automobile, train or plane, you should purchase travel insurance that includes emergency medical coverage. Also, make sure you have the travel requirements for Canadians visiting the U.S.

All Inclusive Travel Insurance

This policy covers most unforeseeable situations that you could encounter during your trip. With the convenience of one purchase, the all inclusive travel insurance policy is often a good value in comparison to individual specialized policies. Depending on the policy, not only does it provide the basics like emergency medical but also trip cancellation and trip interruption insurance, accidental death and dismemberment insurance, delayed/lost baggage and more.

Trip Cancellation Insurance

If the cost of your trip or vacation is more than you can afford to lose in an unforeseen circumstance, then you should definitely consider trip cancellation insurance.

Single Trip Emergency Medical Travel Insurance

Medical expenses in most countries can quite often cost thousands of dollars a day. Sickness or injuries is definitely one thing you shouldn't take a chance with while outside of Canada. Purchasing emergency travel medical insurance can help your finances and your life.

Multi-trip emergency medical travel insurance

If you think it is likely that you'll make more than one trip per year, this could be your most cost effective option. Trips of up to 35 days are accommodated and plans range from basic to fairly comprehensive.
