What a nightmare. All the insurance companies we have tried wont insure us
now that we're over 65.
We actually want a multi-trip worldwide policy (sans North America). We use
d to insure with STA - because we have been on a number of their trips incl
uding volunteering at the Elephant Nature Park in Thailand, and also crewin
g on tall ships (incl. climbing loft).
But this time we just want to go to the Somme in France to see the WW1 grav
es of our grandfathers.
YET WE CAN'T GET INSURANCE BECAUSE WE ARE 67 AND 73 RESPECTIVELY.
Folks on TripAdvisor recommend World Nomads. But they too have an ageist po
licy of under 65s only.
Indeed World Nomads are partnered with Lonely Planet, Rough Guides and Intr
epid Explorers. So these groups are as ageist as World Nomads.
What are we supposed to do in our dotage - sit in a rest home and wait to d
And with pension pots for the asking - maybe to be spent on world travel an
d adventures - we would have thought that insurances companies would be que
uing up to take our cash. But no.
Has anyone here found an insurance company prepared to insure over 65s?
