Seniors travel insurance explained

Getting older? More like outliving the warranty! After working hard your whole life, perks like more free time and more disposable income mean that older travellers are often travelling well into their 70s, 80s and 90s - we've even taken calls from a few centenarians! While travel insurance is a must for all travellers, it is especially important for older travellers who might have pre-existing conditions. But if you are a little older, you can find it more challenging to find travel insurance which meets your needs and budget, as premiums can be higher, coverage can be lower, or particular travel insurers may not cover you at all. The Compare Travel Insurance seniors travel insurance experts are here to help.

Here's our top five tips for purchacing seniors travel insurance:

  1. Shop around: comprehensive travel insurance for a 70-year-old visiting Fiji for two weeks can vary from around $75 to $350.
  2. Check the coverage limits: some insurers reduce the medical cover for people over 70 to around $40,000.
  3. Check the excess: some insurers have an increased excess for medical claims. 
  4. Consider pre-exisiting conditions: unless it is an automatically covered condition, consider declaring your pre-existing conditions for peace of mind. Many brands now have online screening forms so you can find out immediately whether they'll cover you.
  5. Read the Product Disclosure Statement: check for any exclusions so you know exactly what you are and aren't covered for.
