Travelling has always been a popular pastime amongst older people but it has often been a problem for them to buy reliable insurance policies that don’t cost the earth. Many people well into their 90’s love to travel but find it harder to find cover
(PRWEB) August 31, 2012
Since April this year travel insurance companies must provide all travellers with a means to buy travel insurance if they want it, regardless of their age. This is because the 2010 Equality Act makes insurers tell older travellers where they might be able to buy travel insurance if an insurer can’t provide a policy to people above a certain age.
At http://www.cheaptravelinsurance.com we have decided to help older travellers who come to us. Instead of “sign posting” them to another insurance provider, we will offer a complete quoting service by dovetailing the travel insurance policies we can offer with our two insurance companies Mapfre Assistance and Allianz Global Assistance. We can supply holiday insurance to all travellers from 0 to over 100, covering them for winter sports and for a wide range of medical conditions.
We know that the increasingly popular cruising industry has seen its sales increase over the past 10 years and attracted thousands of passengers. Policies bought through Cheaptravelinsurance.com, a company based in Wiltshire trading since 2000, will cover cruising at no extra cost. Another great benefit of the policies offered is that the older skiers and winter sports enthusiasts amongst us can carry on enjoying these fun activities and be covered.
This type of cover is something that is not easy to find for travellers once out of the mid-sixties age bracket. “Travelling has always been a popular pastime amongst older people but it has often been a problem for them to buy reliable insurance policies that don’t cost the earth. Many people well into their 90’s love to travel but find it harder to insure them as they get older. We also know that our customers want to see what they are buying and we offer a clear breakdown of the benefits provided”, says Suzanne North, director of marketing at Cheaptravelinsurance.com.
A travel insurance quote can be provided online and also by telephone, where our call centre staff will be happy to assist. Our policies cover all areas of the globe either as one off single trip policies or as an Annual Multi Trip policy with 31 days maximum trip duration.
