Travel insurance for over 70s with medical conditions

When it comes to holiday insurance when you’re over 70 and have pre-existing medical conditions, it’s worth doing right.

If you decide not to declare your conditions, you may not be covered properly.

Declaring your pre-existing medical conditions is simple and straightforward.

You can either get a quote online in minutes using our medical screening, or speak to us for free on 0800 033 4902 and we’ll ask you a few questions about your conditions.

While you’re talking to our specialists, they can answer any concerns you have about making sure your conditions are covered to a level that you’re happy with.

So whether you have arthritis, asthma, high blood pressure, heart conditions or anything else, it’s best to make sure it’s declared on your travel insurance.

Types of travel insurance policies we offer for over 70s

We offer two types of insurance policy to suit your travel plans:

Single Trip Travel Insurance is perfect if you’re looking to go on holiday once this year. You can travel for up to 104 days with peace of mind. Once your holiday stops, so does your insurance.

Annual Travel Insurance could be the best choice if you’re planning on going on holiday more than once in the next year. It can even save you up to £79* compared to buying a single policy for each trip you take. Travel as often as you like for up to 35 days at a time for each trip up to a total of 183 days during your policy. That’s a lot of holidays covered!

You can tailor all of our policies to suit your travel plans and to make sure you’re covered properly.

Travelling for longer?

If you’re planning a longer getaway, you can upgrade a single trip with our long stay cover. For people over 70 but not older than 76, it allows you to travel up to 123 days worldwide, or up to 366 days in Europe.

What to consider when tailoring your over 70s holiday insurance:

When buying your travel insurance, you’ll want to have peace of mind that all of the things that are important to you are covered.

With one in 20 people claiming on their Annual Travel Insurance in 2017**, it’s best to make sure that you have a policy that protects you properly if you do need to claim.

Once you’ve chosen whether you want to be covered for a single trip or for the whole year, the next thing to do is to choose the right level of cover.

One of the most important things to think about is the cost of your holiday. Whatever your holiday cost – including extras to get you there, match it up to the right cancellation cover. Our basic cover starts from £500 with optional upgrades to boost it to £3,000. Whereas our comprehensive cover starts from £5,000 with optional upgrades to £15,000 subject to further underwriting criteria.

For extra peace of mind, you can also upgrade to waive excess charges with our comprehensive policies.

It’s worth thinking about how you’d feel and what you’d do if something did go wrong.

If you feel that our basic level insurance will fully cover you, then it could be the right choice for you. But if it won’t, then you may want to think about tailoring your plan to boost your cover where it’s needed.

For full peace of mind, choose our comprehensive cover. In most cases, it has everything you could need and gives you extra options to upgrade.

Doing something extra special on holiday like a cruise? A round of golf? Or skiing? You can also get extra cover for these sort of activities to make sure your plans are fully covered.

Can my travel start from outside the UK?

For our standard policies, your travel must always start from the UK, Channel Islands or the Isle of Man.

If you live outside of the UK and will be travelling from and to your home, then take a look at our special Expat insurance policy.

Can I make changes to my policy?

You can make any changes before you go on holiday – subject to the terms and conditions set within the policy.

If you have a new condition to add to your policy, have a change in medication or want to make sure that round of golf you’ve just booked if covered, then we’re here to help.

What we aren’t able to do is reduce coverage in return for a partial refund so please do check that you’re happy with the level of cover when you book.
