Many people use their retirement as an opportunity to head off to warmer climes, even if it's just for a couple of weeks every year. But despite the appetite for travel in the over 65s. some older travellers may find it difficult to find an affordable travel insurance policy.
Unfortunately as you get older, then your travel insurance premiums will increase. This is because the majority of travel insurance providers deem older travelers, particularly those over the age of 65 to be a higher risk.
Even if you are lucky enough to be in the best of health, sometimes your age can be a factor in being turned down for travel insurance.
However, there are plenty of providers who realise that there is a need for over 65 travel insurance, so you will be able to find a policy suited to your requirements. It may come at a price however, so it's always best to make sure you compare a number of deals to make sure you are getting the best value for money on your travel insurance policy.
