Travel Insurance for Seniors


Everyone loves to travel, but who has the time? It's one of the things that we look forward to after retirement. We want to see the world with the money we worked hard for all those years.

There's just one problem. When a person is older, their health starts to decline. What if you get sick away from home, especially in another country? What if a health condition that you have causes you to miss a thousand dollar flight, plus have to cancel a hotel room with a deposit down? Taking a vacation may seem like too much of a gamble. This, however, is the very thing travel insurance is for. How can you get affordable travel insurance as a senior and one that covers your pre-existing conditions? Read on.

Travel Insurance for Seniors

The fact is that travel insurance is a rather competitive business. By doing a search for senior travel insurance, you will likely find a number of sites that show competitors side by side. You can see which one has the benefits you want and then get a quote. Or, if your main concern is price, you can quote them all and see who gives you the best deal. So what are some things you may want to look for in your travel insurance company?

Where are you from and where are you going? The most expensive health care is in the United States. If you are traveling to the states, you will likely pay more for insurance, but it is also more important. I got a parasite once in Nicaragua, and for the test and prescription I paid a total of $6. In the United States that procedure would cost hundreds of dollars. So when you are traveling to the US, find a travel insurance that covers someone of your age. Find one with varying deductibles. This will allow you to get a better price if you go with a higher deductible that you can afford to pay if an emergency comes up.

Also, regardless of where you are traveling, you should be able to find an insurance that does not reduce benefits depending on age. Of course, if you already have a chronic health condition then you will pay a little extra. But there are many travel insurance companies that don't discriminate against those with chronic health problems.

These were some of the things you need to know about travel insurance for seniors before traveling. Now go see the world and enjoy your hard earned retirement!
