Comparing Travel Insurance For Medical Conditions Over 65
You should arrange your Travel Insurance as soon as you’ve booked your holiday so that you are covered for cancellation, should something go wrong before your trip. If you ‘re looking for Travel Insurance to cover pre-existing medical conditions or you are over 65 it’s very important that you compare the levels of cover included in the policy, as well as the price.
Obviously the most important thing to do when you buy Travel Insurance is to declare all your medical conditions and answer the medical screening questions correctly. We ask you to declare your medical conditions before you see any prices, that way you can be sure that all the quotes you see include the appropriate cover for those conditions.
So, knowing that your medical conditions will be covered by all the policies that we present to you, you can then start focusing on the levels of Travel Insurance cover available and make a decision.
Medical and repatriation cover is the most important element of your Travel Insurance
When you have a medical condition or are over 65, the most important part of your Travel Insurance policy is the level of cover for emergency medical treatment and repatriation. This is the part of the policy that provides cover for your medical conditions and other medical treatment that you may require whilst you are away. Look at the limit of cover and remember these limits are per person insured.
Look at the excess amount as well as the cover limits
The excess is the amount that you pay towards the cost of a Travel Insurance claim. You may prefer to choose a slightly more expensive Travel Insurance policy because there is a lower excess to pay (or even zero excess) in the event of a claim.
Consider adding End Supplier Failure to your Travel Insurance
If you book your flights and accommodation separately you don’t get the same level of financial protection that you get when you book a package. Adding End Supplier Failure Insurance to your Travel Insurance can provide additional financial protection in the event that one of your holiday suppliers becomes insolvent – remember this is included FREE on all Gold policies.
