About Senior Travel Insurance

Senior citizen travel insurance policies are usually negotiated with licensed insurance professionals. Selecting the right coverage from the available options can be a challenge. The need for more than basic coverage is sometimes a factor considered with senior citizens because of pre-existing medical conditions. As a result, when senior citizens are shopping around for travel insurance, it is beneficial to them to consider their current health when considering travel insurance.

It is also important to note, that senior citizens should seek clarification from their insurance provider if there are situations that are excluded from their travel insurance policy. Additionally, it is important to find out how the insurance company determines eligibility. Furthermore, senior travel insurance is an example of a regular insurance plan offered by some insurance companies to cover people above the age of 60 travelling outside Canada. This insurance plan is intended to help senior citizens pay for costs of accidents that may require medical care or damage that occurs to their properties or those they rent while staying abroad.

Types of Senior Travel Insurance

Canadian seniors purchase travel insurance to provide protection against unforeseen circumstances while abroad. Some travel insurance policies cover plane crashes and terrorist evacuation. Such insurance policies are security measures that could help policyholders save a lot of money in the end. Here is a list of the typical types of coverage that can be obtained, other than travel medical insurance, for senior citizens in Canada.

Trip cancellation coverage reimburses policyholders for non-refundable expenditures and deposits incurred when a scheduled trip is cancelled for any reason acknowledged by the insurance policy. Travellers are insured if a trip is cancelled due to death, sickness or bankruptcy.

Trip interruption coverage absorbs the costs incurred as a result of suspension of the trip. This means the insured is reimbursed for all non-refundable costs associated with the suspension of the trip as well as expenses incurred as a result of the trip’s early end.

Health and medical evacuation covers expenses for medical emergencies that occur abroad. However, this coverage does not include routine medical exams. When travellers get injured or become sick abroad and there is no medical facility that can provide sufficient healthcare, medical evacuation coverage will provide transportation back to Canada for further medical care.

Baggage protection reimburses travellers when they lose their baggage. Some policies provide coverage for bags that are delayed for more than 12 hours during transit. People travelling with highly priced commodities can consider paying a higher premium for additional coverage.

*Senior travel insurance may also cover expenses associated with car rentals and emergency dental procedures.

All Inclusive Travel Insurance

All inclusive travel insurance covers most of the unpredictable events that could occur during a trip. Consumers only have to purchase an all inclusive travel insurance policy once, making it a more convenient option in comparison to individual specialized policies. Coverage details will vary across different policies but all insurance travel insurance can provide trip cancellation and trip interruption insurance, accidental death and dismemberment insurance, delayed/lost baggage coverage and, of course, emergency medical insurance.
