HomeTravel InsuranceTravel insurance for seniors

We think everyone deserves a holiday, so our travel insurance has no upper age limit. Going away can be more difficult in later life with complications such as health conditions. We will consider any pre-existing medical condition, no matter your age. This means you’ll be covered for any emergency medical expenses. Plus you’ll be protected for cancellation, lost luggage and more. This means you can enjoy your travels, relaxed and worry-free.

Travel insurance for seniors

The NHS predicts that 1 in 3 people over the age of 65 and half of those over 80 will have a fall this year. 

If this were to happen while you were on holiday, you could rack up high bills if you don’t have a travel insurance policy. Some insurers have a limit, and they won’t cover anyone over a certain age. At InsureandGo, we think everyone should get to relax on holiday, so we have no upper age limit. Our policies provide cover for medical emergency expenses, cancellation and more, regardless of how old you are:

We’ve made it easy to arrange our senior travel insurance, so you can get on with looking forward to your holiday:

  • Hassle-free help: Get a quote quickly and easily or if you’ve already bought your policy and have some questions, get in touch with our friendly team. Plus, our 24/7 emergency helpline is available for all policyholders if you need help while you’re away
  • Cover your pre-existing medical conditions: We will consider any pre-existing medical condition. This includes concerns like diabetes, cancer and heart conditions
  • Cover if something gets in the way of your holiday: If you have to cancel your holiday for reasons outside of your control – such as a family emergency or bereavement – the last thing you want is to be out of pocket. Our cancellation cover could help
  • Travel for just as long as everyone else: Our single trip travel insurance lets you travel for up to 365 days. Meanwhile, the length of trip you can take on our annual policies varies depending on your level of cover. This ranges from 31 days on Budget policies to 55 days on Black policies. This is regardless of age, so you don’t miss out when buying no age limit travel insurance
  • Get over 100 activities included as standard: All of our policies include over 100 activities already. If you’re up to something a little different, we have a variety of add on cover. From golf to extreme sports

What does InsureandGo’s senior travel insurance cover?

It’s important to make sure you have the cover you need, including medical emergency expenses and any activities you plan to do:

What’s covered?

Our travel insurance with no upper age limit includes:

  • Medical emergency expenses.
  • Cover for cancellation of your trip.
  • Our 24-hour emergency assistance team, available to call, day or night, wherever you are
  • Over 100 sports and activities covered (see your policy wording for a full list of activities)

  • Legal expenses cover.

What’s not covered?

We try to provide as much cover as possible, however, there are some situations travel insurance will not cover. For example:

  • You cannot cover events or reasons to claim which took place before you booked the trip or purchased insurance. Insurance exists to cover unexpected events outside of the insured’s control
  • Claims which are less than the excess for that section of cover. For example, you cannot claim a £40 lost item if your baggage excess is £60
  • All of our travel insurance policies include cover for cancellation of your trip, but there may be some exclusions. For example, you won’t be covered to cancel if you simply decide not to go

Frequently asked questions on seniors travel insurance

Is there usually an age limit for travel insurance?

Many travel insurers will have an age limit, where they will not insure anyone over a certain age. The age limit will vary and will be chosen by the insurance provider. 

However, at InsureandGo our policies have no upper age limit. However, remember that our additional cover for winter sports is only available to those under 65.

Does travel insurance for older people cost more?

Unfortunately, travel insurance for older people does normally cost more. This is because the risk of you needing to claim, and for those claims to be costly, are higher. This is the case with all travel insurers, just like a young driver having to pay higher car insurance premiums. 

It’s quick and easy to get a quote for travel insurance whatever your age. Do it now online, or by calling our team on 0808 169 6609.

Can a 90-year-old buy travel insurance?

Here at InsureandGo, we have no upper age limit, meaning even those in their 90s (or even 100s!) can buy travel insurance for their holiday. Policies include cover for over 100 sports and activities. However, please note that our winter sports add on cover is only available to those under 65. Always read the policy wording for full terms and conditions. 

Can older adults buy travel insurance with family?

Absolutely! You can cover every generation, from children to grandparents, and even great-grandparents, on one of our family travel insurance policies.
