Travel insurance should be seen as an "essential" product for older travellers, one provider has said.

Over 50s insurance specialist RIAS has said that taking out insufficient cover in order to cut the cost of travelling abroad during the recession is a "false economy".

Janet Connor, managing director of the firm, said that adequate insurance is as important as vaccinations and visas, highlighting a number of considerations for older consumers.

As well as declaring any pre-existing medical conditions, older travellers should check the cancellation terms of a policy and ensure that both in-patient and out-patient treatment is included.

"It is essential to be familiar with the terms of the policy in order to know exactly what cover you are getting for your money," Ms Connor said.

"This is particularly the case with travel insurance for the over 50s as there is often the important consideration of pre-existing medical conditions."
