These days you can find all kinds of insurance for travelers of various age groups. There are those for young individuals, for those aged 65 and travel insurance over 70. But no matter how old you are, we can’t deny the importance of travel insurance because whether you are a teen or a 70 year old man, you can never tell what will happen during your travel.
Insurance for elderly were not commonly offered by insurance companies before. But because there is an increase in the number of elderly who travels, they gradually created an insurance especially for people over 65.
Prior to getting travel insurance, you should decide if you are constantly going to travel or this is just a onetime experience. You can get insurance for one travel or you can also get an insurance which can cover all your travels for the whole year.
The common coverage for travel insurance includes:
• Flight delays or cancellation- Expenses for your accommodation, including your food and transportation will be covered.

• Coverage for lost or damaged luggage or passports.
• Coverage for lost money or any personal belongings.
