There’s no avoiding the fact that once you turn 65, insurers of all types are going to shy away from offering you their products and this is especially true for travel insurance.
Insurers seem to assume that turning 65 automatically means you are a liability while exploring, but this couldn’t be further from the truth for most silver-haired explorers.
The good news is that just because it’s difficult to find travel insurance when you’re over 65 doesn’t mean that it’s impossible.
The most important thing when searching for cheap travel insurance is not to be afraid to shop around. Don’t jump at the first quote you see for fear of not being able to find anything cheaper and losing out: you often have much more to lose by snapping up the first offer on the table.
Take your time and speak to as many insurers as you can, ensuring that you weigh up the cost of premiums versus the other benefits of a policy. One insurer might offer you the lowest premium, but this might come hand in hand with the worst terms and conditions.
By far the quickest and easiest way to weigh up your options is to use a quote comparison service.
These websites allow you to set parameters for your search, such as how many are in your travelling party and the type of trip you’re undertaking, and see at a glance what the best deal for your circumstance is. All that remains from here is for you to weigh up the policies against one another.
