Although it can be difficult to get travel insurance policies for those who are 65 and over,

at Columbus we have a very different view. Life is for the living, why should your wings be clipped simply because you’ve hit retirement age? We can offer you single trip travel insurance up to the age of 85. Alternatively, our annual multi trip insurance has a maximum age of 74. We can also offer cover for pre-existing medical conditions.

Often it’s when you hit retirement age that the world, and all that it offers, can truly open up to you. Prior to this date, children, work commitments and the constant treadmill of everyday life can mean that our dreams have to be put off until another day. If you’re now 65 or over, isn’t it time you gently push all those other commitments to one side? Why not put yourself first and seize the day.

Whether you want to sit and admire the beauty of the Taj Mahal, explore the vast oceans on a world cruise or saunter through the lush vineyards of France, there isn’t a better time to do it. The great news is that you don’t have to venture out into the unknown alone; we can be there with you.

All you need to do is decide where you want to go to first, pack your bags and remember your sun cream!
