Seniors Travel Insurance

Seniors Travel Insurance

Senior travellers need an insurance policy tailored to their specific needs. As you get older, you're more fragile and prone to pre-existing medical conditions. As a result, it's important to make sure you're protected from any unexpected financial losses before leaving for a trip.

 

What Coverage Do I Need as a Senior Traveler?

To make sure you get the right senior travel insurance for you, it's important to review your health. You need to know what your current health conditions are, what activities you'll be participating in during travel and how long you'll be away.

Once you have all the facts, you'll be able to select a policy that will adequately protect you from any unexpected costs.

 

What Are The Risks for Travellers Over 65?

  • Pre-existing Medical Condition: If your medical condition reoccurs while you're travelling, your medical coverage will be invalid unless you have informed your travel insurance provider of the condition.
  • Medical Emergencies: You never know what might happen on a trip. New foods, different climate and different surroundings might result in you getting ill or injured on your journey.
  • Trip Cancellation: If your travel provider files for bankruptcy before your trip and ceases operations, you will able to submit a claim with your travel insurance provider.
  • Medical Evacuation: Medical evacuations can quickly end up costing thousands of dollars that you don't have. You need to make sure your travel insurance provider will arrange and pay for you to be moved to a qualified hospital.
