Older customers need to think about having
appropriate travel insurance in place before they go abroad this winter, urges
money saving website moneymaxim.co.uk.
Premiums for those aged 65-74 are up to three
times higher than for younger travellers, as insurers allege that those over 65
are more likely to need to make a claim on their insurance.
Mark Bower from moneymaxim.co.uk explains,
“Something to keep an eye out for is pre-existing medical conditions. If you
have a medical condition you really need to shop around for specialist
insurance to ensure that you have the right cover for your specific needs. The
main benefit of this type of insurance is that it allows people who have
pre-existing medical conditions to go abroad with peace of mind without having
to worry about extra medical costs in case something happens.”
