AA TO STOP AGE RISTRICTIONS ON TRAVEL INSURANCE OVER 80s

The AA will stop restricting holidaymakers aged over 79 from taking out travel insurance cover for single trips from November 5.
Finding travel affordable travel insurance can be impossible for older travellers, with the majority of firms imposing age limits.
While the AA will keep its age limit of 79 on annual policies, it will axe the limit on single trips. It will also offer more generous medical underwriting.
Those who suffer from mild asthma or angina, for example, currently have to pay a small premium on top of their normal travel insurance cost.
But when the changes take effect they will no longer have to. Mobile phones will also be automatically covered, which they aren’t at present.
Of the 543 travel insurance policies available for single trips just 75, including those from LV=, the Post Office and Saga, have no maximum age, according to research by price comparison website GoCompare.

Some such as Protect Your Bubble cover customers only up to the age of 54. Aviva and Axa Direct won’t cover anyone over 80, while Barclays’ age limit is 70.
RBS requires its packaged current account customers to inform the bank when they turn 70. After this they will pay a £50 supplement a year and undergo medical screening. Only their premium Black Account policyholders don’t have to do this.
Meanwhile, M&S restricts single-trip customers over 80 from travelling to the USA.
A spokesperson for the AA says: ‘The details have yet to be finalised, but we are looking forward to introducing the improvements in early November and making our travel cover more competitive.

INJURED ABROAD ON HOLIDAY OVER 85s?

What to do if you have suffered an injury while on holiday abroad

This short guide is designed to help anybody who has suffered a personal injury while on holiday in a foreign country.

We understand that suffering an injury can at any time can be traumatic but even more so when you are away from home and not sure how to proceed. It is hoped that this guide will answer any questions you may have.

A team have dealt with numerous different types of claims for injuries that have occurred in foreign countries including road traffic accidents, food poisoning and injuries caused by holiday activities like paragliding, waterskiing and diving.
A lot depends on how you initially booked your holiday, see below:

If you have booked your holiday through a tour operator, they are responsible and your claim can be handled in the English or Welsh courts. The tour operator does need to be an ATOL protected provider so it is worth checking when booking your holiday.
However, if you book your holiday through a travel search website like Travel Republic or Last minute, you will most likely not be covered as they do not sell, organise or arrange package holidays; they just allow users to browse offers. In this case, the injured party would have to instruct solicitors from within that country to pursue a claim directly as it would be out of UK jurisdiction. It is worth highlighting that doing this can be prove to be expensive.
If you have booked your holiday using a credit card, you may also have some level of protection as there are means by which injured parties can claim from their credit card provider.

If you have booked your holiday by some other means or are travelling independently, there are travel insurance providers who offer compensation should you suffer an injury. It is worth taking out travel insurance if you are going on holiday or travel regularly.
No matter how you booked your holiday and even if you don't fall under any of the categories above, you should contact a law firm that are experienced in handling claims for personal injuries suffered when abroad.
Immediately after the accident, you should report the accident and consequent injuries to the hotel where you are staying and/or the tour operator you travelled with (if applicable).

Arrangements should be made for the injured party to receive the necessary medical care and attention.
Following treatment, you should ask for a written accident report including details of your injuries and if possible have photographs taken of the injuries.
It is also important to get witness statements from any other holiday makers or people who witnessed the accident. Make sure to get their contact details so they can be contacted in the future.

It is also critically important that you do not accept any financial offers of compensation until you have received expert legal advice.
Different countries have different processes for dealing with personal injury claims with different limitation periods for making a claim. For example, in Spain, you must begin proceedings within a year of the accident which is in contrast to France where the limitation is 10 years. Accidents that occur on a plane or boat/cruise generally have a limitation of 2 years.

NORTH SOUTH DIVIDE

Age UK warns that a "concerning" north/south divide is rising across the country, with over double the quantity of these aged over sixty five mistreatment on-line services in Surrey compared to Tyne and Wear.

David noble, of Age UK, delineated it as "concerning" that in some components of the country over double as several older individuals area unit ready to access the advantages of being on-line than in alternative areas.

He needs the govt, native authorities and businesses to produce larger help for individuals over the age of sixty five once it involves mistreatment the net.

"However, if they need older individuals to use these services, they have to assist them get on-line within the initial place with tailored and current support.

April 2013

Latest from travel insurance world is that sites like over80.co.uk are expected to face a significant increase in the number of compensation claims made, it has been revealed.

According to the law firm Travelaw, as the financial crisis continues, insurers may witness a rise in the number of claims made.

Stephen Mason, Managing partner of the British firm stated that already there had been an increase in the number of claims filed over the winter.

The firm warned insurers that as the current economic climate continues to fall, more holidaymakers will ensure they get what they paid for.

He said: “On the one hand travel companies are facing more claims and on the other they have fewer staff to deal with them.

It's been a pattern in the last few downturns. When times are hard and affording a holiday is pushing the budget, claims are much more likely.”

Some insurers offer travel insurance with no excess which can help if you are likely to make a claim.
