Do you insure 98-year-olds?

Published: Apr 18, 2018

R.G. from IL asks: My 98-year-old mother and I are going on trip. Do you insure 98-year-olds? 


Dan answers: It is true that some companies have age limitations, but we still have a dozen companies that can insure this trip. For a $5,000 trip cost for a 98-year-old from Illinois, the premiums begin at $544 for a basic trip cancellation plan. However, for $617 you can get a great trip cancellation plan that includes $150,000 primary medical with no deductible, $500,000 emergency evacuation, a waiver of pre-existing medical conditions if purchased within 20 days of the first trip payment or deposit — plus baggage, baggage delay, and travel delay benefits. We recommended that Mom get the plan with the $617 premium.
