Older travellers have been told that it's crucial to declare any information relating to a pre-existing illness in their travel insurance for when they go abroad.
An article in the Guardian states that travellers over 65 often have the "thorniest" travel insurance issues and thus should make sure they are brutally honest with their travel insurance company before they go on a holiday.
Also over 65s, who may be better taking out a specific travel insurance for over 65s policy, have been warned not to assume that buying travel insurance from a company that specialises in the older person's market will definitely quote the cheapest insurance.
Anyone buying a form of insurance for anything should always shop around to make sure they get the cheapest quote they can.
And all holidaymakers have been urged to visit their doctor before they go on a break, as this may help cut down on the number of unnecessary medical claims, according to the Dental Defence Union of Scotland.
