Health-related issues are the most common insurance claims for travelling snowbirds, according to RSA Insurance. The three most common travel insurance claims for snowbirds are related to pneumonia, heart conditions and gastro-intestinal conditions.

"With an aging baby boomer population and medical advancements and treatments, we are seeing people experiencing more serious health conditions when travelling than we have in the past and medical treatments outside of Canada can be extremely costly," said Erin Finn, director of underwriting for RSA Travel.
"…Making sure they have proper travel and medical insurance coverage before they leave will provide [snowbirds] with peace of mind while they are away."
