Some ‘younger’ people may think that if you’re over 65 you should be happy to sit at home with your slippers on and leave the travelling to them.  But I bet that couldn’t be further from the truth. You’ve got more time on your hands, hopefully you’ve got the money, so it’s time to get out and explore the world.

But, how do you decide where to go? You may have been dreaming of a favourite destination for the last 30 years and are now pleased you’ve got the time to finally go there. On the other hand, if you haven’t dreamt of anywhere in particular, the world is your oyster and now’s the time to start researching.

A good place to start is online, most countries or regions have a visitors website to promote the delights they have to offer, then once you’ve got a destination in mind you can start looking for accommodation or flights, or a tour operator who can do it all for you.

If you do decide to book elements of your holiday separately, direct with different suppliers, your holiday will not be ATOL protected and you might want to consider adding Scheduled Airline Failure (Insolvency) Cover to your travel insurance over 65 policy.

Magazine style travel sites can be a good place to get inspiration. Savista is a quality online lifestyle magazine for the over 50s, which aims to inform, entertain and advise on all aspects of life, they have some great ideas for holidays including the Cruising the Norwegian Fjords a trip around Bordeaux.

Wherever you head off on holiday, travel insurance over 65 should be one of the first things on your ‘to do’ list once you’ve got your holiday booked. Remember to declare any pre-existing medical conditions to your travel insurer when you buy your policy
