This winter, check out Banff, Alberta, where you can experience world class skiing and snowboarding surrounded by one of the world’s most breathtaking natural environments. Set in the heart of Banff National Park and snugly embraced by Alberta’s Rocky Mountains, the little town of Banff boasts a big, worldwide reputation. Its charming streets are abuzz year round due to an annual influx of millions of visitors, and this famous mountain resort town caters accordingly with world-class shopping, dining and accommodation.

Winter turns the area into a snow sport enthusiast’s dream; the Sunshine Village Ski Resort and Norquay attract a global deluge of skiers and snowboarders, while cross-country skiers, snowshoers and ice climbers explore numerous local trails.

In our recent survey of Good Sam Members residing in the United States, almost half of you said you travel outside the country by RV. Of those who leave the country, nearly 80 per cent travel to Canada. Less than a third of our members, however, said they purchase travel insurance when they leave the States.

As a Good Sam member, you automatically enjoy two days of multi-trip travel health and medical insurance in Canada as part of your membership. In fact, you’re covered for up to $10,000 on an unlimited number of two-day trips during the year. All you have to do is call 888-237-1177 to activate your coverage.

Are you planning to spend more than two days in Canada, or need to increase your coverage amount beyond $10,000? Extend your coverage for a small fee. Simply call 888-237-1177 and ask about the different options available for all types of travelers and all types of trips.

A bit of extra coverage is a wise investment even if you’re only heading north of the border for the weekend. Consider the case of a man on a camping trip in Canada who was treated for a brain clot resulting from a minor fall. The life-saving exam and treatment he received at a local hospital totaled $5,640.

Your complimentary Good Sam travel medical insurance is administered by TIC Travel Insurance, a company that stands out with its 88 percent overall customer satisfaction ratings and expert, personalized customer service.
