As we get older, the urge to travel and visit our families doesn't just go away. Senior travelers 80 years of age and older are no exception! However, this particular age group also needs to be proactive when it comes to preparation and protection of their health and safety. The best way to ensure that international travelers over 80 stay safe during their trip is to get a comprehensive visitors insurance policy that provides the important coverage needed by this age group.


Coverage options for visitors 80 years and over can be limited since age is one of the primary factors insurance companies consider a risk. Because of this, most plans for travelers over 80 have restricted policy maximum options, reduced benefits and higher premiums..

The following best travel health insurance for seniors::

Because many seniors over 80 are at a higher risk of illness and injury, it's important for them to have travel medical insurance, especially when traveling to the United States. Without insurance, a doctor’s visit could cost hundreds of dollars, while a trip to the emergency room could cost thousands of dollars out of pocket.

any seniors are reluctant or fearful to travel because of the associated risks, but there are several plan options that offer important features for elders, such as 100% coverage for emergency medical care, acute onset of pre-existing conditions coverage, and emergency medical evacuation. With visitors insurance, seniors can travel with peace of mind.
