Over 80s travel insurance

Are you over 80 and planning a holiday?  You might think that it will be complicated – not to mention expensive – to get travel insurance. Even more so if you have some medical conditions.

But it really needn’t be. At Avanti Travel Insurance we specialise in providing high quality, affordable over 80s travel insurance.

In fact there’s no upper age limit on our Single Trip policies. So that special holiday in Europe or even that long-promised trip to the other side of the world are equally within your grasp.

Our friendly and sensitive UK-based travel insurance specialists are on hand to guide you through our screening and quotation process. It doesn’t take long, and it allows you to tailor your policy to one that best meets your travel needs and your medical circumstances.

Why not talk to us today? You can call us now on 0800 888 6195, or get an easy online quote.

Medical holiday insurance for the over 80s

Many of our customers over 80 have one or more medical conditions, but we fully agree with them that it shouldn’t be a bar to taking that well-deserved holiday.  We can provide full cover for most customers with pre-existing medical conditions, including cancer, heart disease and diabetes. In fact, we will cover some medical conditions free of charge.

Do I need to worry about costs if I become ill abroad?

We’ve got you covered. We know that if you become ill abroad it can be costly. That’s why our Deluxe policies offer unlimited medical and emergency cover. If you have a medical emergency while abroad, we have a 24-hour emergency line, based in the UK, for you to call. You’ll find the number on our website or in your policy document.

What happens if I need to cancel my trip?

No problem. We also offer up to £7,500 cancellation cover in case you aren’t able to make that trip*. This helps ensure you are not out of pocket – meaning you needn’t put off that next trip indefinitely.

End Supplier Failure?

No problem. There have been some cases in recent years of holiday suppliers failing. We all hope it won’t happen, but if you buy a policy at Classic or Deluxe levels of cover with Avanti Travel Insurance, you can rest assured that this is one less thing to worry about.

Excess waivers?

Yes. And as with all of our policies, our over 80s travel insurance can be excess free to save you even more money. 

Is the country I’m travelling to classed as European or Worldwide?

You’ll find country geographic definitions are provided in the Geographical Areas in your policy wording and if you’re using the online quote system there is also an information link next to the destinations on the quote page. If you’re unsure about this, simply call us and we’ll help 0800 888 6195.

What happens if I need to make a claim?

If you do need to make a claim, our UK-based staff are on hand to help. You just need to call us on the number in your policy and we’ll explain what you need to do. You’ll want to take your policy documentation with you, and it’s a good idea to leave a copy at home with a close friend or relative.

Are my personal possessions and baggage covered?

Yes. Your personal possessions are covered up to the limit of your opted policy. The Table of Benefits in your policy wording will provide further details and the terms and conditions which apply.

‘Avanti’ means go ahead!

We’re always listening to our customers.  We’re in tune with their concerns and needs, and this is why over a quarter of our business is done through recommendations alone! We make holidays happen.
