Long Stay Travel Insurance for Over 65

Increasingly people are having more leisure time and with that they are looking for longer holidays and trips abroad.

long stay insurance over 65s

Destinations such as Southeast Asia involve a long flight from the UK and it seems a shame to go all that way and only experience some of the wonderful site, such as Angkor Wat (pictured above).

This is particularly the case if you are going as far away as somewhere like Australia or New Zealand. Typically they involve two long haul flights, so it makes sense to seek a long stay out there. The best time to go is of course the winter time when it’s summer Down under!

If you are older then finding long stay insurance might not be so easy, but there are options out there in the UK. Listed below are a number of long stay providers for the over 65s.

Holidays in Turkey and Travel Insurance

How can someone over 80 get Turkey insurance?

Turkey is a hugely popular holiday destination for Brits of all ages and this is despite the country having some political issues. Turkey is currently not in the EU so would not be covered by any EHIC or any other European health insurance schemes.

If you are heading to Turkey then you must have comprehensive travel insurance because medical and health costs are very high. You must also check the latest situation on Turkey with the UK government’s Turkey travel advice page. The importance of this is due to some travel insurance companies might refuse to pay up in the event of any political problems or disasters in Turkey. Always read the small print of your insurance and keep an eye on the situation.

Turkey will remain very popular with Brits. It is around a four hour flight to most of the popular Turkish resorts e.g. Antalya – a holiday house rental in Antalya will allow you to enjoy Turkey’s largest international coastal resort. The coastal town of Marmaris, situated on the Mediterranean. Marmaris has a population of fewer than 30,000 permanent inhabitants; however, this number can exceed 250,000 during the holiday season. Bodrum is in the southwestern Aegean region of the country and was named Halicarnassus of Caria in ancient times. Bodrum is home to one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, Mausoleum of Mausolus. Oludeniz name translates to “Blue Lagoon,” and this coastal resort is still one of the most photographed areas of the Mediterranean.

Is it possible to buy travel insurance in the airport?

It is very common for people to totally forget to buy their travel insurance before they start their holiday.

It’s one of those the things that we have on our holiday list and usually it gets pushed right to the bottom!

It is very hard to say which insurers will cover you or not once you get to the airport as they all have different requirements and policies.

For instance some travel insurance providers will allow you to buy right up to the moment that you pass through into departures.

Some travel insurance providers will basically not allow you to buy as soon as you leave your house as this is deemed as the start of your holiday.

If you can find an online insurer that says clearly that you can buy cover in the airport then go for it otherwise we strongly recommend you phoning the various insurance companies and speak to someone about later stage cover.

There are some kiosks in the airports where you can buy insurance but you need to be careful that you know all the terms and conditions

Heading to South Africa? Here’s what you need to know

South Africa at the foot of the great continent has always been a popular destination for older Brits. Many have family connections out there and some have second homes around the cape.

The big issue for South African visitors is of course safety. Unfortunately SA has one of the worst reputations in the world for serious and petty crime. Cape Town is considered one of the safer areas but has a real problem with gang violence. Tourists though are not usually their target but express kidnappings and car jacking does happen.

That all said South Africa can still be a very rewarding destination for the intrepid traveller. There is no reason why you cannot have a trouble free visit to the country but the usual safety tips should be noted.

  • Do not walk around on your own at night
  • Avoid areas that have a bad reputation e.g. downtown J’burg
  • Use Uber or some other reputable taxi or car service. When travelling ensure all doors and windows are locked and shut
  • Keep your valuable as close to your body as possible. Better still try and limit the valuable items you take to South Africa. If you have a new iPhone for instance you might be better off using an old one while in the country. South Africa has a huge gap in wealth and you will be surrounded by a lot of poverty.

We do not want to put anyone off going to South Africa. It’s a hugely popular destination for boomers and the retired with so much to see. just make sure you have comprehensive travel insurance before you go and try and not be too paranoid.

 

Do I really need travel insurance for Australia?

Australia is a hugely popular destination for British pensioners and people of all ages. This is despite the huge distances and costs involved getting to the land downunder!

It is often thought that due to reciprocal health cover you do not need to worry about having healthcare as British citizens will automatically be covered on the Australian medicare scheme. Well this is not the case.

Some of your hospital fees will be covered by in public hospitals downunder but never in private ones. Ambulances are privately run and are not covered by medicare. Indeed even some Australians in certain states would have to pay for an ambulance of they didnt have their own health insurance.

So you really need travel insurance if you are going to Australia, there are no two ways about it. Ambulance travel alone can cost many 1000s of dollars and that’s even before you get to hospital.

Doctor visits also have to be paid for too.

Below are a couple of links that you should check out before planning a trip to Australia.
