Pensioners Holiday Insurance

Back to all Motions

2007 Retired Members' Conference
14 June 2007
Carried as Amended

Conference notes that pensioners, especially those over 80 years of age when seeking holiday insurance are either being refused insurance or being asked to pay exhorbitant rates. At present insurance to Europe if you are over 75 years of age costs £96 a couple for two weeks and insurers do not provide yearly travel insurance to over 75’s at all.

Conference instructs the National Retired Members Committee and

calls on the National Executive Council to seek to get this age discrimination removed especially with regard to UNISON recommended insurance companies.

A report to be published on progress by the National Retired Members Committee to Regional Retired Members Committees by March 2008.
