Thumbs up for BMO mastercard travel ins

Well it finally happened. After years of having the medical travel ins on my credit card I finally had to use it.

Headed to Disney on Dec 5 prior to my Fantasy cruise on Dec 8. Was at the tail-end of a cold and did my ears not start giving me extreme pain and close up to the point of about 80% deafness?? oh joy

Once we checked in I did some looking online and realized I was going to need some antibiotics if I wanted to cure this quickly. So off I went to Centra Urgent Care. (service was great btw. they shuttled me to and from the office)

I knew I had the INS but really had no idea how it was really going to work. Once I filled out my paperwork they gave me access to a phone to call the toll free number. 10minutes later they had faxed all the info the clinic needed so I didn't need to pay anything. ($308 just to walk in the door, once my INS was confirmed they stopped telling me costs so I have no idea what my bill actually was)

The ins asked me to call them once I had been diagnosed. So i gave them a call when I returned that evening. No waiting and very nice. She noted when I would be back in Canada and gave me all the info I would need if for some reason I needed to see a Dr while on the cruise.

Came home to find an email with the insurance forms pre-filled out. Just needed to provide a bit of info, sign and the documentation from the clinic and done.

I know I always wonder how the different insurance companies work so just wanted to put out the good experience I had with mine.

Wow! That's great news. May I ask - did you pay for extra coverage, or was this all covered under the insurance that you automatically receive as a cardholder?

We leave very soon and with all the flu and bronchial infections around here I am starting to get nervous....

We paid about $130 for us and our 2 children - its an annual policy. I used to work for an insurance company in their travel claim department (and have lots of horror stories) so wanted to make sure we had full coverage

I'm 100%. was good to go for the cruise the few days later.

With my mastercard I pay a $100 annual fee for the card itself but the insurance comes with it. Its actually through Allianz which is quite popular with people who buy one-off insurance for trips as well.
