Good Travel Insurance for Travellers Over 65

It is indeed unfortunate that as your 65th birthday comes, less and less insurance companies will be willing to offer you a good travel insurance deal. Certainly they will take more precautions about insuring you, regardless of how fit or healthy you are. The common rule of thumb is that once you reach 65, you are exposed to higher risk of injuries and afflictions while travelling abroad, and hence the rise in premiums.

It is only natural that travel insurance options tend to narrow for the over 65s – however there are some good news. Various online travel insurance comparison tool allows you to shop around for the best quote from a range of providers. What’s more, premiums for the over 65s carry benefits that policies for younger travellers don’t necessarily have. Among the examples are extra emergency and medical cover (up to USD 16m rather than the standard USD 3m), further cancellation cover and cover for departure delays.
