    Has anyone out there found any terrific deals on travel insurance (medical coverage)? So far it seems like the CAA rates are the best -- has anyone done better?

    Thanks (in advance) for any tips!

    I just called our credit union yesterday and they gave me a rate of $1.80 each per day (which turned out for our 24 day stay in March) saving us about $24.00 versus CAA's rates.:) :bounce: :Pinkbounc

    I've found in the past that getting CAA insurance for a year isn't much more money than buying from another company for two weeks. Last year, we got insurance for the four of us for a total of approximately $130 for the entire year. It's a great deal if you're going to the States more than once in the year.

    Sometimes travel insurance is included if you have health insurance ... I think it's included on the plan that I have at work. I'm still planning on purchasing travel/medical insurance because we might be switching plans...

    Thanks, for the info so far.

    I tried a few places and CAA did seem like a good deal. I actually get 500K coverage through my company health-plan, but the insurance rep said they always recommend at least a million when going to the US (especially with the exchange rate I guess!).

    Do you think that's going overboard, or is 500k enough?

    I tend to think that where your health or the health of your family is in question - the extra money spent on insurance is totally worth it. Healthcare in the states is as we all know ridiculously expensive - it would be horrible to have anything happen and have to worry about not being covered. As always, just an opinion :)

    Also try your homeowner's policy-I had a rider added to mine
    good for one full year all members of my family-covers health,
    accident, life and baggage and limited trip cancellation- for
    $54 for the year, unlimited trips out of province - up to 30
    days each trip.
