Q: I need for myself, wife and children a short term medical insurance for snow ski vacation. We depart Mexico City on Dec, 27 and we return on Jan 8, 2007

A: This coverage is available . There are several high quality policy choices listed on this page, but you may wish to consider the "Round Trip Travel" plan since this includes luggage protection and several additional benefits in addition to medical insurance. Coverage is issued directly online and you can download and print a certificate for proof of coverage. This leading insurer has an excellent reputation for integrity and service. The cost of this insurance is minimal compared to the cost of regular health insurance or the actual cash cost of even a single medical procedure.
