Celebrating another birthday shouldn’t stop you enjoying a well-deserved holiday. In fact, we see age as just a number, with no upper age limit on our travel insurance policies.

We understand that although you may regard yourself as an OAP, a senior citizen, or elderly, what really matters is your happiness and health. What better way to enjoy your retirement than with another adventure?

For some, globetrotting gives back a sense of youth and adventure. For others it’s a chance to relax and enjoy yourself. Some even travel as a way of reconnecting and visiting family in far-off countries.

Whatever your age, we offer travel insurance for: Over 50s, Over 60s, Over 70s, Over 80s.

So wherever your next adventure takes you, whether you’re travelling solo or with friends and family, we’ll be there to help you find the policy that meets your needs.

For both our Single Trip and Annual policies, there is no upper age limit. You can stay away for up to 104 days, which is plenty of time for an extended visit to make some memories.

Flexibility to change details online

When you buy a policy from us, you can manage it yourself by logging in to your My Avanti account. Here you can:

  • access policy documents
  • update traveller details
  • change your single trip dates (limits apply)
  • renew an annual policy if you have no changes to make
  • and more.

Arthur, Heading to the Beach Having Travel Reassurance

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

When you’ve got Avanti Travel Insurance, 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.

That’s Travel Reassurance!

Why travel insurance is so important

John1 was enjoying the sun in the USA, when he suddenly needed urgent hospital treatment. As soon as he told the hospital that he had travel insurance, he was seen to immediately.

By calling our free, 24-hour medical emergency helpline, he was immediately reassured. There was no need to worry, we’d be there to help. We settled the bills directly with the hospital so John could concentrate on the most important thing — getting better.

If your medical emergency bill is more than £350, we’ll pay it directly to the hospital whenever possible. That way, like John, you’ll have one less thing to worry about, and can get the care you need to get you back on your feet.

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.

Do I need to tell you about my pre-existing health conditions?

When you’re living with a pre-existing medical condition as a senior citizen, having a great holiday isn’t out of the question.

Far from it.

But what it does mean is that it’s really important that your conditions are covered by your travel insurance.

But it does mean that it’s really important that you tell us about your health and how it affects you. That way, we can build a travel insurance policy that has your needs in mind.

From high blood pressure to arthritis and cancer, if you have any pre-existing medical conditions then it’s best to tell us about it.

We understand that opening up about personal things like your health can feel daunting. But our friendly team are there to help you. We’ll talk through a few questions about your medical history, step-by-step, at a pace that suits you.

If you prefer, you can answer these questions online. Everything you tell us will be treated as strictly confidential. We’ll never rush you.

By telling us about your health conditions, and covering them with your travel insurance, you’ll be able to travel knowing you’re in safe hands should the unexpected happen.

Can I get travel insurance for my holiday activities?

Age definitely shouldn’t stop you from enjoying your favourite sports and activities when you’re away on holiday. Travel insurance can cover you for most sports and activities while you’re on your travels. Just make sure you aren’t taking part on a competitive basis!

Swimming, golfing, hiking and tennis are just some of the activities your policy can cover you for, and what’s more, you’ll be able to enjoy them knowing should something go wrong – you’ll have our help there to put things right.

With over 80 activities included on all our travel insurance policies, you can enjoy your holiday adventures with peace of mind.

Hitting the slopes? Make sure you get your Winter Sports Travel Insurance, to be covered if disaster strikes in the snow.
