Snowbird and 50-Plus Traveller Tips
If you choose to travel during the pandemic, please do your due diligence to help protect yourself. Because the Government of Canada’s Level 3 Travel Advisory is not a ban, we know that some will travel abroad. If you plan to travel out-of-country, read the government advisories so you know the risks. IE: even with coverage for COVID-19 related expenses, it could be difficult to access vital medical services outside of Canada during the pandemic.

Travel, home and auto insurance should never be considered as “get it and forget it” products. This is especially true for snowbirds. Along with changing protection needs, there could be limitations in place, or conditions that must be adhered to for coverage to be valid.
Take time to confirm your insurance requirements, the terms and conditions of your policies, and your responsibilities. It can be a costly mistake to assume you’re covered. If you have questions, check with your insurance provider before you leave for vacation!
