Older travellers should shop around for insurance

Saga logo

Older British holidaymakers are advised to shop around for the best possible insurance deal as good policies for the over-65s are "not hard to find if you look in the right place".


According to over-50s travel insurance specialist Saga, the older generation of travellers should be "clear and honest" about any pre-existing health conditions when searching for travel cover.


Paul Green, head of Saga Group Communications, suggests that buyers should examine whether policies cover pre-existing conditions rather than simply opting for the cheapest deal, as insurers now have a better understanding and improved systems for rating older travellers, : "Travel insurance for older people is not hard to find if you look in the right place – Saga has no upper age limit - and the oldest person to be covered was a lady celebrating her 100th birthday."
