Travel tips for 60+
Travelling is fun, inspiring as well as enriching. It’s a great way to relax away from your daily life. However, it is important that you plan properly so you can enjoy your holiday without any complications. Here are our top travel tips for your later years that you can keep in mind when embarking on your travels.
Planning your trip
- If you have been ill you will need to ensure your GP thinks you are fit to travel. Speak to your GP about any vaccinations that you may need and any adjustments you may need to make when taking your medication due to time differentials.
- You can use this visit to get your doctor’s approval to travel. You can also find out about any vaccinations that you may need.
- If you can plan to arrive at your destination during the day, this will prevent you from having to wander around an unfamiliar area at night.
- Depending on your medical condition, think about your accommodation and destination carefully. If you have limited mobility it’s probably not going to ideal if you book accommodation up in the hills somewhere. Consider your own comfort and enjoyment and don’t risk overexerting yourself.
Managing your health whilst travelling
- Ensure that you carry sufficient quantities of medicine with you at all times. See your doctor before you travel so they can prescribe you enough to last you your trip plus any extras in case of damage, loss or delays.
- Avoid eating street food, especially if it has not been prepared and cooked in front of you.
- Before flying, book a seat that provides you with sufficient legroom, consider priority boarding so you can board the plane before it becomes crowded.
- Consider wearing compression stockings to help avoid DVT, doing some gentle leg exercises during your flight can also lower your risk.
- If you’re travelling within the EU you’ll be entitled to an EHIC (European Health Insurance Card). This is free from the NHS and will allow you the same level of medical treatment as the residents in the country you’re visiting. This can mean low cost or free medical treatment, however, this isn’t a valid form of travel insurance and won’t cover you for baggage loss, cancellation or repatriation.
Extra tips for over 60s travel insurance
- Consider an active holiday!
Make the most of our no age limit benefits. You can be covered for jet skiing, camel riding, deep sea fishing, safari trekking, hiking and many more activities – without any additional cost – on AllClear Gold, Gold Plus and Traveller policies.
- Consider the healthcare system of your destination!
For example, getting travel insurance for a single trip to Italy is cheaper than for Spain. Why? Private healthcare is much more common in Spain, which means the cost of your medical bill, and therefore your travel insurance is higher.
