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

Richard 1 was all set for a cruise holiday when he had a medical emergency, leaving him unable to travel. Luckily, his travel insurance policy with us meant we would cover him for the cost of the cancellation.

But only a few months later, just when he was about to rebook his trip, Richard was diagnosed with a new health condition.

Once again, we were on hand. We updated Richard’s policy with his new health condition and he finally got to set sail on his cruise, secure in the knowledge that we’d got him covered.

What does our travel insurance cover?

We have three flexible levels of cover for you to pick from, so whatever your travel plans and budget, we’ve got a policy to meet your needs.

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 70s travel insurance?

Our travel insurance is created especially for the over 70s. As specialists in covering older travellers with pre-existing health conditions, you can be confident that the policy you buy from us really will cover your health and holiday needs.

We don’t have age limits on our travel insurance – so your age never needs to be a barrier for relaxing on holiday.

Whether you’re off on a city-break, a cruise or a worldwide tour, you can be covered against mishaps and cancellations with cover personalised to your travel and health needs.

Over 70s travel insurance with pre-existing health conditions

If you’re travelling with any pre-existing health conditions, you need to make sure they’re included on your travel insurance, or you could find yourself out of pocket. Which is why letting us know how your health conditions affect you is important.

We’ll do this by asking you some simple, multiple choice questions to get a clear picture of how your health conditions affect you. That way we can help you to find a policy that matches your needs.

When should I buy my over 70s travel insurance?

It’s entirely up to you when you buy your travel insurance. With Single Trip Travel Insurance, you’ll be covered for things such as cancellation as soon as you buy your policy. A single trip policy can be bought up to 24 months before you travel.

As for Annual Multi-Trip Travel Insurance, your cover begins the day you choose to start your policy – this can be up to 30 days after buying your policy.

It’s important to remember that you’ll only be covered for cancellation if you found out you need to cancel after the start date of your policy, not the date you took your policy out.
