Make sure you have travel insurance

If you’re one of the 0.5m over-65s in Ireland, finding affordable travel insurance can prove daunting. Some insurance providers will insist on medical screening before they even quote a cost – and cost is a big factor. However, at Chubb we are happy to provide great cover for older travellers.

Lots of people like to take advantage of annual cover, particularly if they travel regularly to see friends, family or visit their holiday home. Our online quotation process only takes a few minutes to complete and, as an added bonus, additional discounts are available for those with private health insurance.

It is also always wise to register for the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) which gives you access to public hospitals within the EU.

Medical treatment can be prohibitively expensive. It is a sad fact of life that the older we get, the more likely we are to fall ill or have an accident – so you should always buy travel Insurance before going abroad. If you fall ill or suffer an accident which means you need to be brought home, you could easily find yourself facing a huge bill, but with Chubb you can relax and enjoy your holiday safe in the knowledge that benefits for medical treatment and repatriation of up to €5m are available should you need to claim.
