Travel insurance for the elderly

Earlier retirement has encouraged many elderly, and even very old, people to visit relatives overseas or to fulfil long-standing tourist ambitions. However, it can be difficult to find travel insurance for the over 65’s and the over 70’s.


It is vital that the elderly have adequate travel health insurance. Existing health problems usually have to be declared in advance, including any arranged hospital admissions. Cover may not include, for example, those who have recently had heart surgery. Even with travel insurance, in an emergency, quality of care depends upon the healthcare facilities available in the country that you are visiting. You may need to arrange travel health cover with a specialist insurance company.
