Your essential partner for travelling in later life
There’s no limit to a person’s dreams, and if your dream is to travel abroad or visit far-flung friends and family around the world, your age shouldn’t prevent you from doing it for as long as you’re able to enjoy it.
Travel insurance isn’t compulsory, but it’s highly recommended at any age, not just for older travellers. However, the chance of needing medical attention while travelling in later life does increase with age, and it can be hard to get travel cover at an affordable price. If you have a pre-existing medical condition, the search can be even harder.
The most essential travel partner you’ll ever have on these years of adventure and exploration is a comprehensive travel insurance policy, specially designed for the over 80s. We’ll take away the hassle of all that searching and do the hard work for you.
Whether you need cover for a single trip to Spain, a European cruise or a multi-trip policy across the globe, just ask us for a free quote.
What does it cover?
Each policy is different so when you’ve received your quote, check the details carefully to find out what it covers. Most policies include cover for:
- Personal belongings (luggage, passport, prescribed medication, medical equipment etc)
- Cutting your holiday short (such as due to Illness, family emergency or bereavement)
- Travel disruptions – delayed or cancelled flights
- Medical expenses
- Getting you back home (repatriation)
- Legal expenses such as personal liability
What doesn’t it cover?
Here are some things that many policies typically won’t cover:
- Civil unrest
- Natural disasters
- Unattended belongings
- Reckless behaviour
- Influence of drugs
What is a pre-existing medical condition?
A pre-existing medical condition can be defined as an illness, disease or injury you have been diagnosed with or received treatment for that existed before the policy was taken out. This could be anything from a heart condition to asthma or epilepsy.
What is medical screening?
If you are applying for travel insurance with a pre-existing medical condition you may be asked to undertake medical screening.
Medical screening aims to assess your condition using a set of multiple-choice questions. The questions may vary depending on what condition you suffer from. You could be asked when you were diagnosed, any medication you are taking and if you’ve had any operations or been admitted to hospital.
Although the questions may seem personal, it’s important they are answered accurately to make sure that your risk is correctly assessed. Failure to do so could invalidate your policy.
When should you buy your travel insurance?
Arrange your travel insurance as soon as possible after you know your travel plans. If a medical condition arises after you’ve bought your travel cover which prevents you from travelling, you have a much better chance of being covered for any out-of-pocket expenses
