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

Why having the right travel insurance is important

David’s1 holiday with his wife in sunny Tenerife took a turn for the worse when he fell ill and was hospitalised for 11 days.

But because David had bought his travel insurance with us, we were able to help him get back on his feet.

We paid for his medical fees and his stay in hospital. We also looked after his wife by making sure she had somewhere to stay and by covering the costs of travelling to and from the hospital. It was a great weight off her mind as well as David’s.

Once David was fit to travel, we arranged new flights and paid for a specialist nurse to fly home with him to make sure her got home safely.

David knows that buying your travel insurance policy with us means that if something does go wrong, help is just a phone call away.

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 80s travel insurance?

Not all insurers offer travel insurance if you’re 80 or over. With us, there’s no age limit on our travel insurance policies, so you can enjoy travelling whatever your age.

Because we’re specialists in travel insurance for older travellers, we cover most pre-existing health conditions, so when we say your health conditions are covered – they’re covered.

Over 80s travel insurance with pre-existing medical conditions

If you’re over 80 it’s quite possible you may have one or more pre-existing health conditions, which is why it’s even more important to choose a policy that’s right for you.

Travel insurance should give you peace of mind, so you can relax on your travels knowing you’re able to call our medical emergency helpline 24/7. Practical help when you need it most.

Letting us know of your health conditions and how they affect you means you’ll get a policy personal to you.

If you forget to tell us about your health condition, this may affect the validity of your policy and any claim you make could be turned down if you needed us further down the line.

 

Can I book my travel insurance with other family members?

You certainly can, in fact many of our customers do so.

Choosing to cover your family on one policy is not just more convenient. It means that if just one of you fall ill and has to cancel or cut short their trip, you’re all covered. Even before you’ve set off.
