Age limit of 85 on travel insurance

Travel insurance for the over 64's can be difficult to find, with many travel insurance providers not offering policies. At Columbus Direct we have an age limit of 85 on our single trip policies. Annual multi trip insurance is available to travellers aged up to 74. We offer a wide range of products and all can include cover for pre-existing medical conditions.
