Blue Cross travel coverage now available on your Android

When Pacific Blue Cross first introduced the Mobile Travel Kit for iPhone and iPad, one of the first things we were asked was when could I get this for Android.

We’re pleased to announce that the Mobile Travel Kit is now available for Android. The new app not only enables residents of BC and Yukon to purchase travel coverage on their phone, it also gives you a copy of your policy while you travel so you always have it with you in case something unexpected happens.

More and more Canadians are using mobile devices as a way to interact with the world around them. In fact, one in three mobile phone users in Canada use a smartphone according to a recent study on cell phones and consumer attitudes. “Making our app available for both the Android and the iPhone was an important goal for us.” said Mark Gronsdahl, Pacific Blue Cross’ Director of Marketing and Sales. “We want people to have more options for accessing coverage. Now just about every BC and Yukon resident with a smartphone can buy travel coverage from their device and have their policy with them while they travel.”
Features of the Mobile Travel Kit:
  • Get quotes and purchase travel insurance from the palm of your hand (British Columbia and Yukon residents only).
  • Keep a copy of your policy with you on your phone while you travel so you can view your coverage and the benefits you qualify for under your plan.
  • Contact Pacific Blue Cross and/or Medi-Assist with the touch of a button in the event you experience an emergency while travelling.
  • Personalize your app by creating profiles to make your next travel insurance purchase even faster and easier.
  • Keep track of your previous travel certificates.

Good health and a safe trip are tough to guarantee, so make sure you get peace of mind by purchasing travel insurance from a name trusted around the globe. Pacific Blue Cross Travel Insurance. Covers you, Covers the world.
