Dear Sir , 

Well, that depends on where you’re travelling to. To be more specific, there are 34 countries that have made travel insurance mandatory, so you’ll need to purchase a cover before you travel there. These countries include Cuba, The United States of America, The United Arab of Emirates, Ecuador, Antarctica, Qatar, Russia, Turkey and the group of 26 Schengen countries.

​No. It is only mandatory in certain locations such as Schengen countries and Australia. However, senior citizens are exposed to more risk of falling sick in foreign locations due to their age. Hence, it is always advisable to carry a senior citizen travel insurance as a precautionary measure.
