Travel Insurance for Seniors Age 80 Years and Over

As we get older, the urge to travel and visit our family doesnt just go away. Senior travelers 80 years of age and older are no exception! But 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 age 80 and over stay safe during their trip is to get a comprehensive visitors insurance policy that provides the important coverage needed by this age group.

There are very limited choices of coverage available for visitors age 80 years and over due the fact that age is one of the primary factors insurance companies consider as a risk. Because of this, most plans for travelers over age 80 have restricted policy maximum options, reduced benefits and a higher premium.

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

Many seniors of this age group 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 knowing they are covered for the unexpected.
