Thrifty and over 65?

Tell your kids (or grandkids) that you're considering an adrenaline fuelled adventure holiday, active hiking break or winter sports trip and they might look at you with concern. "But you're almost 70!" they'll exclaim as they start to worry about all the things that could go wrong during your trip. Whilst it's true that your body isn't getting any younger, your mind is still as youthful as ever, and why shouldn't you enjoy all the activities you loved in your 20's when you are nearing 70 years old?

Put their mind at ease

If you're determined to enjoy your active break but don't want your loved ones to spend two weeks worrying, there is an easy way to put their mind at ease. Over 65 travel insurance with is specifically designed for the over 65 market, so it provides the extra cover you need to stay safe on your travels.

What's included?

Travel insurance for over 65's provides the older generation with just the right level of cover - here's what's on offer:

> Up to £10 million medical emergency cover

> Up to £5,000 cancellation and curtailment cover

> Up to £2,000 lost, stolen or damaged possessions cover

You can even add optional add-ons to your policy, such as cover for your cruise or extra cover for a golfing holiday. There are a huge range of activities already covered by the policy including bowls, fishing, hiking, golf and much more.

The only thing you need to remember is that's over 65 travel insurance won't cover you if you have a pre-existing medical condition. If that's the case, you'll need to speak to them about alternative cover.

Get active

Staying active has a number of health benefits for the over 65's - it can help relieve depression and anxiety and has been shown to lower blood pressure, decreasing the risk of stroke. So make sure you are able to relax and enjoy your active holiday this year without worrying about friends and family back home - take out and you'll be covered no matter what you get up to on your travels!
