At MrandMrs50Plus we’re very aware how difficult it can be when looking for travel insurance for the over 65s. You’re either penalised with high premiums or given the locked-door treatment by insurers. Many are averse to the risks that older people present.
There’s a certain irony in the fact that generally speaking, as you get older you tend to want to travel more. Getting travel insurance for your journeys isn’t always as easy as you might expect though. There are often restrictions on your age, medical conditions and destinations. Many of these you don’t discover until you start your application.
Where to find Travel Insurance for the Over 65s
Many of the mainstream insurers are often reluctant to offer competitive travel insurance for the over 65s, especially travel insurance for people with medical conditions.
Don’t give up hope! If you’re wondering ‘where can I find travel insurance if I have cancer?’ or ‘where can I find travel insurance if I’m over 65?’ then you may have come to the right place. We’ve looked around to see if there’s a solution and we believe there is!
GoodToGoInsurance offer travel insurance cover for pre-existing medical conditions of all types. They have no upper age limit on their travel insurance policies, so being over 65 will not be a barrier to getting great value travel insurance cover for your holiday.
Why should you have to pay a premium for travel insurance for the over 65s when you’re as fit and active as many 40 year olds? It’s really unfair, isn’t it! Mr and Mrs 50 Plus know only too well from experience that even in your 50s you can find that the number of exclusions rises rapidly every year. We found a good value policy for our Year Out in 2017 after a huge amount of legwork (or was that keyboard-work)?
Do we really need travel insurance?
Many people ask if they really need travel insurance. Ninety-nine times out of a hundred your trip will go without a hitch. You’ll look back and wonder why you went through the hassle and cost of getting a policy. But on that one time there’s an incident, or illness, it could cost you a five-figure sum just to get it investigated. And this doesn’t cover the additional costs of repatriation in the worst case. Our advice is to always have adequate cover and spend whatever time is necessary to find a suitable and affordable policy.
Finding good travel insurance for the over 65s needn’t be as difficult as you’d imagine. It’s really just a case of knowing where to look.
Why not enquire with GoodToGoInsurance and see if you can get the right cover for you. They’re a perfect one-stop shop for those looking for travel insurance for people with medical conditions or travel insurance for the over 65s.
Good luck, and Enjoy your trip!
