Consumer Daily Reports

Don’t expect to see grandma and gramps much this year. After dropping from nearly 50% of all travelers in 2019 to 16% in COVID-ridden 2020, people aged 60-plus seem to be buying up all the trips they can.

According to statistics from travel insurance marketplace Squaremouth.com, the share of seniors hitting the road has risen by 125% and now account for the largest travel demographic for the first time since the start of the pandemic – double those 50-59 and nearly double those 35-49.

And with that, what those consumers want from a travel insurance policy is changing, too. Not only do the insurance companies have to address health issues that COVID-19 may have created, but older travelers are looking for assurances that their trip insurance will cover everything that’s especially important to them. 

Topping the list these days are more searches by seniors for policies with medical coverage. Seniors remain the most concerned demographic when it comes to contracting COVID-19 while traveling, despite a 21% drop in searches for COVID-related coverage over the past year.

What things are other seniors looking for in their travel insurance?

ConsumerAffairs asked Squaremouth’s analysts to dig into its study a little deeper to find out specifically what seniors are looking for in travel insurance so their demographic peers could have a better idea of what to look for.

The biggest increase in the types of searches is for Cruise insurance – up 76% year over year. Logging a 45% uptick from 2022 are popular medical-related benefits – Emergency Medical, Medical Evac, Pre-Existing Condition and Primary Medical. Next on the checklist of coverages is a 20% increase in searches for Travel Delays -- which, in a situation like Southwest's recent cancellation downfall, may have covered some parts of a person's trip.

Overall, Squaremouth’s total searches break out like this for seniors:

  • Contracting COVID-19: 30.18%
  • Emergency Medical: 17.50%
  • Medical Evacuation: 13.90%
  • Trip Interruption: 13.73%
  • Cancel for Any Reason: 11.36%
  • Pre-Existing Condition Coverage: 8.92%
  • Primary Medical: 8.55%
  • Travel Delay: 8.32%
  • Quarantine Coverage: 6.29%
  • Cruise: 6.28%

Related Videos On: Fraud Affects Every Community: Imposter Scams (Spanish with English subtitles) - Updated


The first-person story of a woman who was harassed by scammers impersonating court officials and lawyers, who tried to coerce her into paying hundreds of dollars for a debt she didn’t owe. Aprenda más sobre cómo evitar estafas http://www.consumidor.ftc.gov/estafas Learn more about avoiding scams http://www.consumer.ftc.gov/scams ****************************** Transcript: Recibí una llamada, en la cual me decían que yo tenía una demanda por 4 mil dolares. Si yo no pagaba eso, me iban a mandar con Inmigración, y que, bueno, eso iba a ser catastrófico. Pues yo me asusté mucho. Me asusté tanto que, le digo, casi corría yo a la tienda de la esquina a comprar el money order y ya quería que estuviera la gente por el money order y que se fuera. Cuando yo platiqué con mi hijo él inmediatamente me dijo: sabes qué mamá, esto no es real. Pues, empecé a buscar el número en la computadora. El mismo número que le estaba marcando a mi mamá tenía muchas quejas, y de hecho una de las quejas era casi idéntica. Una estafa de impostor es cuando una persona le dice que tiene una afiliación, o que es incluso el Gobierno. Le dice que tiene una deuda pendiente y que tiene que pagar cierto dinero y normalmente es un sentido de urgencia, es "páguelo ya, inmediatamente." A la señora Juárez, igual que a otras personas, la convencen con amenazas, diciéndole que si no pagan la deuda van a ser llevados a Corte, o pueden ser encarcelados. Yo estoy agradecida, gracias a Dios que tenía a mi lado, en primer lugar para exteriorizar lo que me estaba pasando, compartirlo con mi hijo y con mi esposo. Me sentí muy apoyada, muy apoyada simplemente al exteriorizarlo, al compartirlo. Nosotros presentamos una demanda contra la empresa, y después de toda la evidencia que pudimos juntar gracias a las declaraciones de personas como la señora Juárez, el juez determinó que sí, la empresa estaba involucrada en fraude al consumidor y la empresa fue cerrada permanentemente. A mí me da mucha tristeza que personas se presten para este tipo de estafas. Les aconsejo que platiquen esto con personas que consideren ellos que pueden estar un poco más informadas. Si usted recibe una llamada de alguien que no conoce, y le piden que envíe dinero ya sea por una tarjeta pre-pagada, con un giro postal o en efectivo, no lo haga. ****************************** The Federal Trade Commission deals with issues that touch the economic life of every American.
