Older Australians and travel insurance

A new report has been released examining whether older Australians face age discrimination when purchasing travel insurance.

The report, Ageism in Travel Insurance, summarises the key findings from a survey conducted by National Seniors and COTA Australia regarding members’ views and experiences with travel insurance.

The survey found those aged 70 and over were more likely to cite difficulties in obtaining travel insurance or affordable travel insurance as a major reason for ceasing to travel overseas.

Almost a third of respondents (32%) reported that they have had to pay higher travel insurance premiums because of their age.
