Most traditional insurance companies will not provide coverage for those who are older because they feel it is too much of a risk.  Older individuals are more prone to falls, waterskiingwhich could lead to broken bones or fractures.  If you’re highly active for your age and intend to participate in activities that may be considered “risky” such as snow or water skiing, canoeing, or other activities, Age Concern travel insurance will provide the coverage you need, unlike other companies.  You can live it up and never give a thought to what would happen if you were to injure yourself, because you have the coverage you need.

Of course, protection in case of an accident or injuries isn’t the only thing you need when you’re planning to travel abroad.  Sometimes things come up in life and you have to cancel your plans at the last minute.  Age Concern travel insurance will cover your costs should you have to put off your plans but have already made reservations with hotels, or for car rental.  And what would happen should you go on your trip and arrive at your destination to find that you luggage didn’t make it?  You can choose coverage for that as well, so that any valuables you packed away in your luggage are covered if your luggage becomes stolen or misplaced.

Don’t let traditional insurance companies decide whether or not you can travel abroad!  This is a wonderful time in your life, a time when you should be able to do anything you want to do, regardless of your age.  With Age Concern travel insurance, your destination is in your own hands – and you can enjoy going anywhere in the world without worry that you’re putting your financial future at risk
