Travel insurance for pre-existing medical conditions could be next on the shopping list of adventurous older travellers looking for a far-flung destination for volunteering.According to research from Saga Holidays, older travellers are increasingly going to places such as Nepal, St Lucia and South Africa to take part in working holidays.Commenting on the findings, spokesman from the group Paul Green said that what many of these countries lack are "people with engineering skills, people who might have been nurses or teachers who can share their skills, knowledge and life experience and make a difference", which could make older Brits ideal.According to a poll from Saga Holidays, nearly half of the over 50s it asked seek both physical and mental refreshment from a break.To ensure that their relaxing time is not spoilt by problems with paying for any medical care they may require, older Brits looking for over 65s travel insurance may want to invest in a travel insurance policy for people with pre-existing medical conditions.Published by World First Travel Insurance - providers of worldwide travel insurance for all types of holiday, cheap annual travel insurance and great family travel insurance.
