It's not just travel insurance, it's travel reassurance!

Travel insurance that’s with you all the way - so you’ll be ready to roll, wherever your holiday takes you.

That’s Travel Reassurance!

Why getting your travel insurance before you set off is important

Liz(1) booked herself a cruise and immediately bought her travel insurance with us, and was all set to go. Then suddenly she had to spend some time in hospital. The day before she was due to board the ship, her doctor advised her to cancel her trip, as she was too poorly to travel.

Liz called us, asking how to claim for the cancellation of her trip. Within three working days the money for the cancelled holiday was in her account.

Despite her disappointed holiday hopes, as she had bought her travel insurance policy as soon as she booked the cruise, Liz was covered for cancellation.

When you’ve bought your travel insurance with us, you can be sure you’re in safe hands. If something does go wrong, we’ll always aim to put it right. Good to know, especially if you’re travelling with pre-existing health conditions.

Do I need to have had both my Covid jabs to be covered?

As long as you’ve had the vaccines you’ve been offered for Covid-19, you should be covered. If you haven’t been offered both doses yet or you’re medically exempt then you can also be covered.

If you’ve refused any doses of the vaccine or haven’t been able to have a dose you’ve been offered, you won’t be covered.

What is over 50s travel insurance?

Over 50s travel insurance is just like any other type of holiday cover. You can get cover from most insurers, but you’ll need to check they cover pre-existing health conditions if you have any.

Whether you’re planning a short break in the UK, a blissful continental cruise, or a worldwide tour we can help make sure you’re covered.

Over 50s travel insurance with pre-existing health conditions

If you have any pre-existing health conditions, it’s vital that your travel insurance covers them.

We’ll ask a few questions about your health and how it affects you day-to-day. Getting to know you means we can make sure you’re covered properly because when we say you’re health conditions are covered – they’re covered.

If you forget to tell or update us about anything related to your health, this may affect the validity of your policy should you need to make a claim further down the line.

For more information on what you will need to tell us, take a look at our pre-existing medical conditions travel insurance page.

If you have any concerns about the questions we’ll ask or the cover we offer, give our friendly team a call. We’ll be happy to answer any queries you have and talk you through the medical questions step by step – relax, we’ll never rush you.
