    I just checked the details of my insurance. It's wedding ins and not travel ins. It covers the cost of the venue, dress, jewlery, deposits made, etc. We obtained it from our regular ins. carrier.

      I know most of you ladies are talking about actual wedding insurance, but if anyone has questions on health insurance for international travel let me know - I'm a insurance agent in San Diego and handle all types of health and life insurance so I can help you with any travel health insurance questions.

        Just to clarify my thread was talking about Wedding Insurance, NOT travel insurance. The carriers to date that I have conversed with for policies are Travel Insurance and Fireman's Fund Insurance expanded its existing policy for weddings and other special events. WedSafe, a unit of Aon, also offers a wedding insurance policy.

          Mine wedding ins. is through Travelers and it cost $500.00 for the policy. Hope this helps!

            Ok, I did a search for travel medical insurance and read lots of posts (thanks ladies!) Several relatives of mine are retired or semi-retired and are cardiac patients. They will get travel medical insurance, so no problem there. I know they'd get the all clear to travel, but I'm a bit worried about once we've arrived.

            I would like our families to be able to go to a facility like Amerimed Hospital and get immediate medical attention without worrying about the cost. Is that even possible?

            Can anyone recommend a specific insurance provider?

                It may just be another added expense but I recommend all my brides provide travel insurance when booking me AND for themselves. You just never know what will happen and in the end travel insurance will save you money if anything happens!

                Like everyone else said, better safe than sorry! :)

                  I have a lot of experience with this as I am an independent health insurance agent and I sell all the carriers in California. Any of the big name carriers are good. I personally sell all my clients HTH Worldwide. I was in Italy last summer and got very sick - my HTH worked wonders - it paid for everything. Also keep in mind if you are in US and have medical here - they will pay for emergency situations abroad (EDIT: just realized you were in Canada - will your universal healthcare cover you in emergency situations abroad?). Now emergency situations are not breaking an arm (even though I would consider this to be so!)....anyway good luck!

                  If you have any questions - PM me - I'd be happy to answer them for you.

                    I know that if you use your credit card to book any of your travel, they cover some kind of insurance too but not health/medical. I'm lucky to not have to use it so far. The $1/day sounds too far fetch but it may exist and only covers the bare minimum.

                      Yes, I think that some credit cards (maybe most?) have some type of travel insurance (i.e. lost luggage, rental car insurance, etc.) Not sure of the exact details but I would contact your credit card company and ask or go on the website. Why pay for something if it's already given as a perk for your business? Don't know about health though.
