Over 80's insurance
Last year I read your article about getting travel insurance for over 80's for my mother travelling with me to Japan.
I spend days following the links and then their links only to find that 99 percent of them DID NOT cover over 80's and the rest had such expensive premiums.
I worked my way down the list until I got to the M's and found mondial which lead me to https://www.worldcare.com.au/
there I found very easily insurance for myself at a quarter of the cost of all the others and my mother paid 3 times what I did, being a saving of over $300 over the least expensive.
Most of the sites would not give you a quote apart from what they charged for an 80 year traveller and the difference was at their discretion.
At this time I wrote a very long and detailed email hoping to save you and all the other over 80's from wading through the rubbish I had to go through.
Why don't you check out the site and give pensioners some decent advice in this area.
I am truly disappointed with your lack or response and then to find you referring 3 site in this weeks newsletter and again no mention on Mondial or WorldCare, which I believe is a disservice to pensioners.
One of the many ironic things that I found out was when I checked World Care is that they were 'underwritten' by Allianz so I checked the Allianz site only to find the exact same website with the same details except by buying via WorldCare the same policy as Allianz I saved my mother over $300.
We live in a sick society that preys on the elder if they can, and to see the senior newsletter have articles that are not correct or helpful to Pensioners, in my opinion, is a disgrace.
Hope you rectify this area and check the WorldCare Link and the Allianze link to compare and if the information is still the same now in February as it was in June last year print the information in all you newsletters to save pensioners a lot of time and frustration.
If I sound frustrated, it is because I am.
