People in their 80s enjoy going on holiday just as much as anyone else. They may be slower getting around and have more health conditions than younger travellers, but that doesn’t stop their desire to see more of Australia and the rest of the world. 

People aged 80 to 89 also travel to visit family and to seek medical treatment away from home. This frequently involves surgery or getting a second opinion from another doctor.

Consider purchasing travel insurance and you can apply for cover for pre-existing medical conditions you may have.
