Over 65s Travel Insurance

Whoever said that travelling is only for the young was totally out of touch with the modern world. Today’s so-called ‘senior citizens’ are fitter and stronger than their predecessors, and 70 is definitely the new 40! However, as we get older, some of us may have problems obtaining reasonably priced travel insurance.
