Regions: Europe, Australia, Worldwide, America/ Canada/ Caribbean

Since we offer a range of insurance policies, the over 75 will find a competitive travel insurance policy wherever in the world they wish to travel. Please note, however that this variety means that the traditional regions (UK/ Europe/ Australia/ Worldwide Excluding USA and Worldwide Including USA) may have some overlap especially when visiting the Middle East/ Northern Africa - some insurance companies rate these countries as 'Europe' whilst others rate them as 'worldwide'. Our recommendation would be to select 'Europe' as the area and then include the country separately.
