Just because you are in your latter years of life doesn't mean to say you cannot enjoy travel and go away in the knowledge that all your medical conditions are covered. We have listed below a number of travel insurance providers who cater for the over 86, over 87, over 88 and beyond.
They provide cover for such trips as a weekend break in a European city, a two week holiday on the costas or Italian riveria, a week touring around Eastern Europe or further afield such as a winter sun break in such destinations as Morocco, Egypt, The Gambia or even Cuba and the Caribbean!

The concept of the Swiss mobility ticket, where guests receive a free pass for local public transport on checking in at their hotel, is one that is incredibly appealing to out-of-town visitors keen to explore and it is no surprise that it has been such a successful venture in Basel, where they have now been in place for a few years.
This is particularly useful if you are over the age of 86 and if mobility is an issue.
