Travel Insurance

At The Sandwich Generation we recognise that you can’t put an age limit on the desire to get out and explore the world. In fact all the evidence points to the fact that an increasing number of over 50s, and indeed those over retirement age at 60 or 65 years, are taking more holidays – both at home and abroad.

Often, reaching the age of 50 coincides with the kids leaving home and having more time and disposable income to spend on yourself. The holiday options that are available today are also so wide and varied that there is something for everyone. Whether you are still young at heart and want an action-packed adventure through the jungle, prefer to take things easy with a relaxing break at the seaside, or explore new interests on a cultural tour through Europe.

The ‘silver surfer’ generation (families of the elderly) are also well catered for by specialist holiday companies and have plenty of advice at their fingertips thanks to the Internet. According to one study, over half of our citizens over 50 have now used this method to book a holiday, and the trend shows no sign of slowing down. Being able to explore the world online before you book, and arrange a holiday without having to trudge through town is a dream come true .

But while more holidays are being taken by the over 50s, many people in this age bracket have found getting insured can be expensive, or nigh on impossible with some companies. Browse our companies below to see what deal you can get.
