Travel Insurance : over 65

When you become over 65, travel insurance becomes more expensive. The good news is that we offer cheap travel insurance over 65 for people in the UK at any age. There are some limits, travel insurance on an annual basis is only available up to 84 (31 days a trip). Travel insurance for single trips is available for 12 months up to age 85 and 3 months for the over 85.

As a broker, we have several travel insurance companies that can quote. Our quotation system compares these travel insurance policies and, provides some helpful guidance as to the suitability of each. Naturally each travel insurance contract comes with its own policy summary so you can compare cover and find the best travel insurance to meet your demands and needs.

Are the over 65 and elderly denied cheap insurance?

When you get older, many travel insurance companies do not want to know you. This is especially true for many of the Direct Insurance companies who only want the young not those more than a certain age.

WE can offer travel insurance as we are an insurance broker. We have access to a range of companies and we have gone to great lengths to find the best. (Actually we offer a full range of products so you can obtain quotes for single and annual policies, long stay, winter sports, GAP years or whatever.) If you call us we even offer travel insurance for a cruise.

Premiums depend largely where you want to go. For instance travel to Europe is cheaper than travel to Australia then worldwide travel and the most expensive travel insurance is America and Caribbean

 Insurance cover for Medical Conditions

As you get older e.g. 70, 75, 80 etc and need travel insurance there is an increasing likelihood that you will need insurance for pre-existing medical conditions. Many internet-based travel insurance companies exclude the elderly and all medical conditions - but we differ.

If neither you, nor your relatives, nor anyone traveling with you needing travel insurance, have any medical conditions then there is obviously no problem. Just obtain the insurance quote and buy online. We will send you the full policy / schedule electronically and the schedule the next business day at the latest.

If you have minor medical conditions then we aim to make life easy. Beside each insurance quote is the contact details of the medical screening line appropriate to the policy. All you have to do is to contact them and obtain terms - once you've found the best terms then you can buy the policy.

However many people want to travel who have serious medical conditions. If the nature of the medical conditions are such that you find travel insurance almost impossible to obtain then we can help. When you go to our quotation system, select the <serious medical condition> option and a link will open. This insurance policy will accept 98% of all medical conditions - the main exclusions being a terminal prognosis for less than 6 months, traveling against advice/ to receive treatment. The policy can even cover you if you are wanting treatment.

Sections of a travel insurance policy

A travel insurance policy has many sections: 

Maximum length of trips available on our insurance

If you want to cover only a single trip then we have no effective age limit. (99) (but the premium will be expensive if you are traveling a long time and have medical conditions - unsurprisingly)

If you want an annual trip then we offer cheap travel insurance cover for you up to the age of 85. Again the maximum numbers of days we can cover per trip will be limited - to 31, however the younger person can obtain cover up to 60 days without any problem.

Other Policies

Although you may have been looking at one specific type of policy, you may like to know that we offer a full range of policies to meet the demands and needs of most people in the UK. Examples Include.
