Worldwide Travel Insurance
Worldwide travel insurance is substantially more expensive
than European, especially for the over 65. Our Redwood travel insurance
offers the cheapest rates available for travel to countries such as
America, especially if the traveller is over 65 or intends travelling for
extended long stays.
Definition of 'Worldwide'
When it comes to 'worldwide', it
doesn't mean what you may think in terms of travel insurance!
There are two options for worldwide travel insurance!
'Worldwide Excluding America' - which may extend to
not covering Canada and The Caribbean
'Worldwide Including America' - which extends to
covering the New World
Please note that even if you select option 2, the travel
insurance policy will not usually cover you if you are traveling against
FCO advice, if you are traveling for medical treatment or have a terminal
prognosis. It is cheaper if you can select option 1.
Medical conditions and worldwide travel insurance
The Redwood travel insurance policy
provides online medical screening for travellers with existing medical
conditions needing worldwide travel insurance. A wide range of conditions
(or combination of medical conditions) can be covered.
Do I need 'world cover' if I am going to Australia?
Travel insurance for Australia
is sometime cheaper - but you may be intending to
stop over en route for a few days. Does this affect the premium?
The answer is: it might. Many long
stay travel insurance policies specifically allow several days (up to
7 depending on the policy. Information on our backpacker
travel insurance page gives a list of the policies we offer and the
facilities for stopping over.
