On International Older Person’s Day we’re highlighting the importance of the availability of travel insurance for older travellers.

In 1990 the UN designated 1 October as the International Day of Older Persons. It has been held on that date ever since and is intended to raise awareness of the issues related to our aging population. Older Person’s Day has become a day to celebrate the contributions that older people make to our society and economy.

As our society ages, it is important to recognize that what we used to think of as old is no longer seen that way. Individuals in their 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s are living a much more active and adventurous life than they may have done in the past.

We now see no reason to stop travelling or taking part in the sports or activities we love just because we are getting older. In fact, in many cases it is our age that is making us more adventurous, with many people determined to make the most of holiday adventures whilst they still can.

When you are travelling abroad it’s important to have appropriate travel insurance cover, no matter what your age or level of fitness. And if you are planning to take part in any sports or adventurous activities you will need to check that these are covered by your policy.

At we believe that everyone should be able to enjoy a holiday abroad safe in the knowledge that they have travel insurance in place to provide financial protection and practical help if they become ill or injured whilst they are away.

We have no age limits on any of our travel insurance policies and can also cover all types of medical conditions.

For the more adventurous ‘older person’ we can also cover over 50 sports and activities as standard, with the option to add cover for over 100 more adventurous activities for an additional premium (for travellers up to age 75 only).

We know that life doesn’t end when you get to 65; in fact it can get better, especially if retirement means you can spend more time doing the things you love.

If you’ve ever had difficulty obtaining travel insurance due to your health or age give a try, we’d love to help.
