Choosing Travel Insurance with Silversurfers
For travellers over 50, travel insurance is as essential as a passport or local currency – yet many people still leave home without it.
While travel insurance might seem like an unnecessary additional expense when you’re planning an already expensive holiday, it may prove to be as valuable as your flight booking or hotel reservation.
Expecting the unexpected
None of us like to consider the possibility that things may go wrong on holiday, but expecting the unexpected is the first rule of any good traveller.
If things do go wrong, having travel insurance can help you with everything from stolen luggage to unexpected medical bills from a heart attack or stroke.
The chances of having to make use of a travel insurance policy are minimal, and for that reason many people don’t bother. But on the flip side of this argument, by taking travel insurance you can protect yourself and your family from the financial fallout of any number of unexpected events for a relatively modest cost.
Particularly in countries without universal health care – for example United States – an unexpected hospital stay could leave you with a bill totalling tens of thousands of pounds. Travel insurance can help guard against this risk and give you the peace of mind that should anything go wrong away from home, on top of the stress of the event itself, you won’t also be worrying about how to pay for it.
