This week: travel insurance for over-65s, NS&I savings and Olympics tickets
In today's podcast, we take a look at why travel insurance for over-65s is so costly and difficult to find. With the price of cover inclined to rocket overnight when people celebrate certain birthdays, Which? Money expert Oliver Smith and Age UK's Jane Vass explain why these arbitrary increases are difficult to justify. Plus, we look at where you can find travel insurance cover if you're over 65 or aged 80 plus.
Elsewhere this week, we put NS&I savings certificates under the microscope. How do they work, why are they so attractive to savers right now, and are there any downsides to stashing your cash in one?
Finally, don't miss this week's top tip on Olympics tickets. We explain what to do if your cash flow is hit by the deduction of Olympics ticket payments - and how to handle winning more tickets than you can afford.
