Saga, the insurer against age discrimination, has launched annual travel insurance for travellers aged 50 and over.
Designed to meet the needs of holidaymakers aged over 50 - 9.87 million of whom have taken more than one holiday over the last year, according to Saga - the new annual policy offers excellent protection for those who frequently take trips abroad.
The policy features no upper age limit, 24-hour worldwide telephone access to assistance, and cover for medical expenses up to £10 million, including repatriation.
"Many people don't think about travel insurance for a short break but it's taking a huge risk to travel without it," said Andrew Goodsell, chief executive at Saga, commented.
Policy-holders also benefit from a special advice line providing information on visas, vaccinations, safety, drinking water, and bank opening hours, among other matters. Click here to find out more about travel insurance.
