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.

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. Insurers estimate that they will spend more on medical claims for older customers as they can pose a higher risk, 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. Our medical insurance is designed to encompass pre-existing conditions - ensuring 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.
