Choosing Holiday Extras as your insurance provider
Our best travel insurance for over 65s includes benefiting from comprehensive cover for everyone in your party. Almost all medical conditions are accounted for, and our policy covers up to £15 million in medical costs, enabling you to travel with complete peace of mind. Generous cancellation and baggage cover is also provided, safeguarding you from unforeseen disruptions. And with a 24-hour helpline, we're always here to help.
We've got two types of policy to choose from. A single trip is perfect if you only plan on holidaying once this year, one policy provides cover for a trip of up to 365 days. If you're likely to travel more than twice, a cost-affective choice would be to book an annual travel insurance policy. You will be entitled to cover for an unlimited amount of trips for 12 months.

Why do premiums go up?
We make searching for affordable travel insurance over 65 hassle-free because we keep our premiums low for older clients. Other providers often add significant costs to their customers as soon as they reach 65. This is because on average, customers in this age group fall ill more often and can be injured more easily, and the consequential treatments are expensive. Insurers estimate that they will spend more on medical claims for older customers, so they raise their costs accordingly.
Travel insurance with medical conditions
Travelling with a medical condition is not always easy, especially with other travel insurance providers hiking up their premiums. We work alongside Latitude insurance to make sure that doesn't happen. Our Latitude team are insurance experts, arranging fully comprehensive policies with heightened medical cover for the smallest price possible.
Top travelling tips for people over 65
- Visit your doctor before the trip. Even if you do not have a pre-existing medical condition, you can obtain health-related advice and any prescription medicines that you might need.
- Stay active. This is vital during lengthy journeys, such as flights. Simply walking up and down the aisle for a few moments can improve your circulation.
