December 20, 2011

When you hit the open road, you want to make sure you’ve planned for everything – including travel medical insurance. Your membership provides you with coverage for an unlimited amount of 2-day trips per year from TIC Travel Insurance. Here, we provide you with a few details about your coverage.

Emergency medical treatment is the single most expensive hidden cost you could be faced with while traveling. While you might think you’re covered, there’s a limit to how far your healthcare plans will cover you when traveling back and forth between the U.S. and Canada. Once you cross the U.S./Canadian border, it’s up to you to arrange and pay for care in a medical emergency.

With Good Sam it’s easy and convenient to stay protected. As we’ve already mentioned, Good Sam members receive up to $10,000 in emergency travel health and medical insurance on an unlimited number of 2-day trips per year. However, if you’re planning a longer visit or need more protection, the option to extend your policy for additional days of coverage or increase your insured amount up to $150,000 is also available. With coverage like that, it’s almost as if you never left home.

Your coverage also gives you access to expert service and assistance in coordinating your treatment. This can include dealing with unfamiliar medical systems and processes, and providing you and your family with updates on your progress. That kind of support can go a long way in ensuring you get the best quality and level of medical care while minimizing stress and providing peace of mind.

Travel medical insurance is an important detail when traveling – but it’s not the only one. You can cross it off your to-do list early with coverage from Good Sam so all you have to think about is where you’re headed next and what to do when you get there.

  • 24/7 multi-lingual emergency travel and medical assistance

    Is this for people living in the USA and traveling only in the USA?

  5. Bobby – currently, this offer covers trips in between Canada and the U.S. only. If you would like more information on this benefit, call 1-888-237-1177.

    Is this only for US/Canada of for other countries as well such as the Philippines????

  7. We apologize for the confusion surrounding this article. TIC actually provides insurance for Good Sam members who are traveling out of their country whether it’s U.S. citizens traveling to Canada or Canadian members traveling to the U.S. Hopes this helps to clarify.

  8. L.Ellis

    This article is not very well written. Is it only coverage for USA folks who travel into Canada? Or does it cover us as we travel around our own country too? Clarity seems to be a big problem!

    Now who would go all the way to Canada for just 2 days? By offering these come-on benefits you give the impression that it is a sales tool for selling a higher limit policy. When you give your members, and especially life members, benefits for being in your club, make them real benefits. Just one major benefit would make you stand out among your competition rather than having several provide notheing benefits..

    As far as i can see this only applies to US citzens going to Canada. What about Canadians going to the USA? We are members too.
