Holiday insurance for adventurous pensioners
Everyone enjoys a holiday and should be able to have one without worrying about what will happen if things go wrong. Holiday insurance for pensioners is available from a large number of insurance providers and it's the only way to ensure that your break isn't spoilt by something small going wrong.
In the past, it was very difficult for pensioners to get holiday insurance because, as a group, they're perceived to be the riskiest investments for insurers. This is because of the higher number of health problems experienced by older people. It might seem a little unfair but this is the way insurance companies operate.
However, with the help of travel insurance companies like Age Concern and Help The Aged, who cater specifically to pensioners, it has become a lot easier for older people to get holiday insurance. Saga is another travel insurance provider that deals exclusively with people over the age of 50.
These companies often represent the best value to pensioners because their insurance packages are designed to suit the older generation.
Many other insurance companies will provide cover for pensioners while they're on holiday. The Post Office, Churchill and Insure and Go all provide holiday insurance to over 65s.
Some places will only offer pensioners single trip cover though, so if you want to take a few breaks during the year, you'll have to find someone who is willing to provide annual cover.
There's no reason why you shouldn't have the holiday you've always dreamt of just because of a few gray hairs, and purchasing holiday insurance for pensioners is one of the first steps in the right direction.
