Do I need travel insurance?
There are a number of reasons why travel insurance is important and even more reasons for seniors. You may not be as fit and healthy as your used to be and medical costs overseas can be huge. A trip to the hospital for gastro in Australia may be covered by Medicare or your private health insurance, but in the USA, it can cost you upwards of $100,000. The quickest way to ruin a trip is for you to come home with a big bill.
Your chances of robbery have increased too, with thieves targeting older travellers. Make sure you and your belongings are protected on your trip.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Hypercholesterolaemia (High Cholesterol)
Hypertension (High Blood Pressure)
Stenosing Tenosynovitis (Trigger Finger)
If your existing medical condition is not listed, you may still be able to get cover. You will be required to complete an assessment form so call our team on 1800 219 156 to get you started.
Do I need to add Cruise cover?
Cruises are great for senior travellers. Visiting multiple locations from the comfort of a luxury liner makes for a relaxing holiday. If you are going on a cruise, you need to add cruise cover and pay an extra premium to be covered. It’s important to know that once you set sail, medical or hospital expenses (domestic or international), aren’t covered by Medicare or your private health insurance. Adding the cruise travel insurance extra when setting up your policy can protect you against lost luggage, cancellation, and unforeseen medical expenses.
