Why choose Holiday Extras as your travel insurance provider?

We're proud of our medical insurance, which has been carefully arranged to ensure we are able to keep the premiums as low as they should be. Our insurance team specialise in arranging fully comprehensive policies for travellers with medical conditions.

Arranging travel insurance as a senior should be straightforward and great value.

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 call centre support team, you might have to complete a short medical screening. 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 UK based helpline. Our team are always on hand if you need any assistance.

Policy Excess

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, with many sections of our cover requiring no excess at all. 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 on all sections.

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.
