Age doesn’t slow down your appetite for travel to new, exciting destinations. And it’s the mature generation taking holidays by storm and travelling more often and further afield than ever before. An impressive 85% of over 65’s travel more than twice annually. And why not! With time and enthusiasm to discover the world, whether visiting family, friends, or taking a life time trip, there is no holding back this sea change as holidays escalate up our ‘essentials list’ the older we get.
Older travellers tend to be more security and health-conscious, yet it’s sometimes increasingly difficult to get travel insurance the older you get, especially for over 80’s.
At Globelink we like to think we work hard to develop and improve products in line with customer’s feedback, particularly as we really appreciate how loyal you are, with a whopping 68% of you repeat buying from us. We believe that age shouldn’t be a hindrance when arranging travel insurance, that’s why we’re excited about Globelink’s latest product - Single Trip travel insurance for 85-89 year olds. Thanks to the support of our insurance partner, we’ve introduced comprehensive cover for this older age band, so spread the word to look no further for a quality policy if you’re aged up to 89.
We will also soon be offering long term Single Trip cover for up to 10 months for people aged up to 79yrs, so there’s no need to cut short those exotic adventures, or trips to family and friends.
All our policies include Cruise cover as standard, at no extra cost. And with cruise holidays going through a mini boom this year, there’s more choice than ever, especially river cruises, so avoid paying this extra insurance cost by choosing Globelink.
We know the older you get, the more likely you might have a medical condition, so we’ve doubled the number of pre-existing medical conditions covered as standard, including gastric reflux, diabetes, hypertension and more.
If you are an unashamed regular traveller taking 2+ trips a year, check out Globelink Annual Multi-Trip cover available for people up to 79yrs with longer trip durations than even before.
Thinking about taking a winter sports break to enjoy some of the best snow Europe has seen for years? We’ll get you covered for winter sports up to 70yrs. Winter Sports cover is free on our Annual policies if you are up to 65yrs and buy our ’45 day trip duration’ option, or you get free Winter Sports cover within Europe on our Annual Multi Trip 45+ policies if aged between 66-70yrs.
