JS Travel Insurance can provide cover for many Sports and Activities, and just because you are over 65 years of age, this does not stop you from enjoying a Hot Air Ballooning or Cycling.
It is important to plan ahead for any trip. Read about your destination and check the travel guides online, so you can learn more about the place you are visiting and be aware of their customs and rules.Check your passport and any visas are up to date and have not expired. Also if you need to get vaccinations, make sure you give plenty of time before hand to get these done.
Apply for a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) if you are travelling to Europe as this allows you free or reduced medical treatment in many European countries.
Look around at the best deals if you need to change money, do not wait until you get to the airport as the exchange can be more expensive.
Contact your bank and let them know you are going abroad, so that they do not put a stop to your cards, if they see activity from abroad.
Take photocopies of all your travel documents and leave a copy at home.
You should check that at your destination, that the water is safe to drink and if you are not sure about any of the food, it is best to avoid it.
