TRAVEL SMART: Make sure you are covered by a quality travel insurance policy. TRAVEL SMART: Make sure you are covered by a quality travel insurance policy.

FORGET gap year students donning backpacks and exploring every corner of the globe. According to recent travel trends it’s the over 50s who are taking globetrotting by storm and travelling further and more often than ever before. A whopping 85 per cent travel more than twice a year. And why not! 

Over 50s are living longer, are more health conscious and with a greater disposable income it would be a shame not to travel wouldn’t it? Holidays get higher up our ‘essentials list’ as we get older and what’s more, the older we get, the more we like to travel with over 65s being the most prolific travellers of the over 45 market.

With the time, interest and enthusiasm to explore the world, over 50s are travelling to more adventurous and undiscovered places than previous generations. Whether it’s a trip of a lifetime on the Orient Express, seeing the northern lights, or glamping in Nepal or Borneo, there is no stopping this sea change. But don’t forget to make sure you are covered by a quality travel insurance policy.

On the whole, travellers over 50 are smarter when it comes to buying travel insurance. As a seasoned traveller, you understand the importance of having the right cover and what can go wrong if you don’t. With over half a million Brits making a claim on their travel insurance last year alone, mishaps definitely do happen! But is it better to buy an annual travel insurance policy or a single trip? We look at this dilemma holidaymakers face each year. 

Ask yourself a few simple questions to decide whether you are better off with an annual multi trip or single trip travel insurance policy:

• Are you considering two trips outside of your home country this year? Don’t forget weekend breaks too.

• Will you be travelling outside Europe for one of these trips e.g. long haul to the US or Asia? 

• Might you opt for a winter sports break as well as a summer break and weekends away? 

If you answer ‘yes’ to any of these it’s likely to be more cost effective to purchase an annual multi-trip policy. 

Whether visiting family overseas, taking a weekend break, an adventure holiday or cruise of a lifetime, Globelink Travel Insurance provides affordable insurance for people aged up to 84 who live in Spain and the EU.
