Vancouver Travelers Story
A lot of Vancouverite cross the border into the U.S. on a daily basis for shopping, to buy gas and for some other purposes but don’t even think about getting travel insurance. Travel insurance will cover you for accidents and medical emergencies for a one-day trip as well as a vacation.
Goose Insurance Services has developed an innovative app to help you to get travel insurance on the go. According to Dejan Mirkovic, the company’s CEO, Canadians ought to get travel insurance coverage before leaving the country but up to 50% forget to do this. If you are struck with sudden illness and requires hospitalization, the financial consequences could be huge, Mirkovic added.
The app, known as Goose, notifies you when you are close to the border. It allows you to purchase travel insurance for $4 a day with a total coverage of $10 million. You can also easily read the policy on the app and find the emergency contacts and contacts to call for claims on the app.
Also, you can even buy insurance if you have already crossed the border but a 48-hour waiting period applies for coverage bought outside Canada. The waiting period only applies to sicknesses but injuries and accidents will still be covered. It is also important to note that Goose will not cover you if you travel against the treatment and/or advice of your doctor and most Canadian doctors will not advise you to travel if you have critical illnesses such as heart attack, TIAs, stroke and so forth.
