Why choose Holiday Extras as your travel insurance provider?
We're proud of our medical insurance, which has been carefully arranged to ensure they are kept as flexible and as comprehensive as possible.
Arranging travel insurance as a senior should be straightforward and at great value. At Holiday Extras, we offer flexible policies for customers of all ages, without upper age limits for our single trip customers. However, for our Annual Multi-Trip policies, we have an upper age limit for customers over 79 years of age at the point of booking. We can cover a wide range of medical conditions as long as you declare them, and our policies provide up to £10 million of medical cover for declared conditions. Up to £2,000 can be set aside to protect your baggage, and as much as £5,000 in cancellation cover can be provided.
Booking your senior travel insurance policy
We understand how important a quick and easy booking process is to our customers. Whether you choose to do so online or via our contact centre support team, you might have to complete a short medical screening if you have any pre-existing medical conditions. It's not invasive, just a series of simple questions regarding your medical history. You can complete our online quote form above to begin or place a free call to our friendly Kent-based helpline. Our team are always on hand if you need any assistance.
Most insurers require a certain amount to be deducted in the event of a claim: this is called the policy excess. The excess on Holiday Extras policies range from around £0-£150. If you would prefer to avoid paying the excess for all of the sections of cover, we suggest choosing our Platinum cover level which has zero excess..

Top tips for older travellers
- Plan ahead - Conduct the necessary research into your destinations, making sure, for example, that you travel during seasons when weather extremes are less likely.
- Inform people who you trust about your plans - Letting people know as you move between locations can make all the difference if something goes wrong, especially if you are travelling alone.
- Remain aware of your surroundings - This is particularly important when you are paying for goods, or withdrawing money from an ATM. If your valuables are vulnerable at any point, quickly scan the area for any potential problems.
- Contact your bank and telephone provider before leaving - If you use a bank card or your mobile phone in an unfamiliar location, your provider may become suspicious and suspend its use so it's best to inform them of your travel plans.
- Travel lightly - Large cumbersome backpacks will only tire you out and make you stand out as a tourist.
