Able2Travel Senior Travel Insurance


Now you’ve retired, why not take this opportunity to sit back, relax and travel the world at your leisure? However, you may have found it has become increasingly difficult to find suitable travel insurance as a senior or pensioner.

Claims data shows that an increase in age, comes with an increase in risks of accidents or falling ill abroad. Leading to an increased risk of making a claim, hence why some insurers are not keen to provide senior travel insurance. However, at Able2Travel, we believe no matter what age, everyone should have the opportunity to travel.

Able2Travel can provide a quality and affordable Single Trip travel insurance solution. Our Senior Travel Insurance is also available as an Annual Multi-Trip for senior citizens and pensioners who love to travel multiple times in a year (Aged up to and including 79).

What is Travel Insurance for Medical Conditions and What Does it Cover?

While going on holiday or travelling abroad should be a fun and enjoyable experience, sometimes the unexpected can unfortunately happen, for example, having to cancel your travel plans if you tested positive for Coronavirus (COVID-19), losing your personal baggage when overseas, or having to pay medical expenses for emergency medical treatment during your holiday.

But, if you have pre-existing medical conditions, it is sometimes difficult to find a Travel Insurance with the appropriate level of coverage for your medical conditions too, and without a suitable policy, it could leave you having to pay medical expenses for any emergency medical treatment you may need for your condition during your holiday.
