We'll cover you for Covid

Travel insurance that covers you against Covid, home and away. We said we’d always be by your side - we meant it.

That’s Travel Reassurance.

Why having travel insurance is important

John1 had used Avanti Travel Insurance for several years and had never needed to claim. That changed during his trip to the USA, when he had a fall and needed hospital treatment.

John told medics he had medical travel insurance, so he was treated immediately. A call with our 24-hour medical emergency helpline put his mind at ease and reassured him that we would sort out payment with the hospital directly.

We took care of the medical bills, and John was able to relax and focus on what was really important – getting better.

Having over 60s travel insurance means not being weighed down with worry, whether it’s about your travel plans or your medical condition. With Avanti Travel Insurance, you’re packing peace of mind.

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 60s travel insurance?

Over 60s holiday insurance is the same as any other kind of travel insurance. It’s true that most insurers will offer it, but many do not specialise in pre-existing medical conditions, and may charge you more for your health conditions.

Having travel insurance that is personalised to your age and medical conditions means you can get cover that’s just right for you. What’s even better? We have no upper age limit, so age should never be a barrier for travelling and seeing the world.

Over 60s travel insurance with pre-existing health conditions

If you have any pre-existing health conditions, it’s important that you include these on your travel insurance policy.

To make sure your policy gives you the right level of cover, 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 your health conditions are covered – they’re covered.

Every traveller we cover is asked a few straightforward questions about their health. The questions are easy to follow and we’ll never rush you.

What do I do if my health condition changes after I’ve bought my travel insurance policy?

It’s really important for you to let us know if any of your health conditions change. That way you can relax knowing that you’re protected by a policy that’s up-to-date and personalised to you.

If you forget to let us know of any changes to your health, this may affect any claims you may need to make further down the line.

Understanding your exact medical situation means we can make sure that you have a policy that covers you properly.
