Policy Excess

The excess on a travel insurance policy refers to the amount deducted before a claim is paid out. The excess on Holiday Extras policies range from around £75-£100, with many sections of our cover requiring no excess at all. Holiday Extras offer an excess waiver which - when added to your policy - removes the excess charges you would normally receive on the policy.

Top travelling tips for people over 80

  • Before embarking, visit your travel clinic for a pre-travel consultation. Ensure that when you leave for your trip you have all of the prescribed medical supplies.
  • Check that your passport is valid (particularly if you haven't been travelling for a while). It can also be a good idea to photocopy all of your travel documents, just in case you lose any.
  • Prepare a list of emergency contacts, and keep it with you at all times. Also remember to call our emergency helpline if you have any problems.
