One of the frequent questions we are asked here at Silver Travel Advisor is about travel insurance. It’s an essential requirement for travelling abroad, and there’s no doubt that as we start to age and may develop medical conditions, this pushes up the price of insurance, sometimes to a level where it becomes very expensive, and can become a deterrent to travel.
The current Covid-19 pandemic has caused a few bumpy moments for the travel insurance industry. However, several companies have already added insurance for this illness and repatriation as a result should this be necessary. We advise you to carefully check with your current insurer on their position for any existing policies. If you are buying a new policy or renewing a previous one, it is important to know what your insurer’s cover is for Covid-19. We suggest that you consult Which? for travel insurance information and in particular the latest policies which offer Covid-19 cover.
We don’t sell travel insurance at Silver Travel but we would like to help you to find the policy which best suits your own individual requirements. Many of our members have recommended their preferred travel insurance companies based on their own experiences. Here are some suggestions which we hope that you find useful.
