Travel insurance and age limits...

Until I started doing some research, I had no idea that there were some companies that did not provide a medical option for travel insurance over 70. Most of the insurance plans have an age cut off of between 60 to 69 years of age, this means some of our senior citizens residing in parts of the world like England don't have the option of the additional medical coverage.

Cover My Travels is different in that it offers Medical Travel Insurance for travelers up to age 79. Some medical insurance plans also charge extra for what is called "Hazardous activities", which means elderly or not, if you decide to take a whitewater river rafting trip you could have to pay extra for medical travel insurance coverage. Cover My Travels is different in that aspect too, they cover most of these types of activities from Archery to Wind Surfing for no additional charge.

Considering many of the Senior Citizens I've met that have decided that in their golden years they are going to experience adventure for the first time, one example would be a former neighbor of mine who was 70 and decided he was going to go sky diving, it's nice to know that there are some companies out there that realize adventure doesn't stop in your 60's.
