Your age shouldn’t be a barrier to seeing the world. With InsureandGo’s over 60s travel insurance, we’ll give you a quote for over-60s travel insurance policies in a few minutes. You’ll be covered for medical emergencies, cancellation, lost luggage, delays even if you have pre-existing medical conditions.

What is over 60s travel insurance and how does it work?

Over 60s travel insurance is a type of travel insurance policy that covers the needs of later-in-life travellers, including any pre-existing health conditions you declare.

If you’re 60 and over and are looking to travel abroad, then we have the perfect policy for you. It’s important to be covered when you’re on holiday, as, unfortunately, accidents do happen.  

Doing anything else special on holiday this year? We’ve got you covered with our specific travel insurance policies, like cruise travel insurance, hiking travel insurance, golf travel insurance and even extreme sports cover.

What does InsureandGo’s over 60s travel insurance cover?

What’s covered

All our over 60s travel insurance policies include:

  • Medical emergency expenses.
  • Cover for cancellation of your trip.
  • Over 100 sports and activities covered (see your policy wording for a full list of activities).
  • Personal belongings and baggage cover.
  • Personal money, passports and travel documents cover.
  • Accommodation cover.
  • Legal expenses cover.

Find out about our optional add-ons for activities like extreme sports, winter sports, hiking, cruises and golf. We will consider all pre-existing medical conditions, find out more about medical travel insurance.

What’s not covered

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

  • Events or reasons to claim which took place before you booked the trip or the insurance was purchased cannot be covered. 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.

The excess and amount of cover available varies depending on the level of travel insurance you buy. Make sure you have a look at our policy wording to see the full terms and conditions, including what is and isn’t covered.

Age restrictions

We think holiday insurance should be available to as many people as possible, that’s why our policies have no upper age limit. Please note that we do not cover anyone over the age of 65 for winter sports like snowing or snowboarding.

Trip length

Our annual multi-trip travel insurance gives you cover to travel as many times as you like during the year. Each individual trip can last up to 31 days for Budget policies, 45 days for Silver and Gold policies, and up to 55 days for Black policies.

If you want to be abroad longer than this, you’ll need our long-stay travel insurance.


The amount of valuables cover available depends on the policy you choose. Make sure you have a look at our policy wording to see the full terms and conditions, including what is and isn’t covered.

If you’ll be taking away something a bit more expensive you can add our valuables extension. Check the policy wording for full details of what’s covered with this add-on.

Frequently asked questions on travel insurance for over 60s

Do I need specialist travel insurance if I’m over 65?

Most “standard” travel insurance policies will cover you from the ages of 18 to 64. However, once you hit 65, you might find that you need a specialist insurance policy. This is especially true if you have any pre-existing medical conditions.

At InsureandGo, we have no upper age limit for our policies, and we cover around 1,300 pre-existing medical conditions at no extra cost, so you’ve got more money to enjoy your holiday.

What is the maximum age you can insure up to?

InsureandGo offers travel insurance with no upper age limit. Our policies always include cover for over 100 sports and activities, no matter your age. Please note that our additional winter sports cover is only available up to age 65.

Will my policy be more expensive if I’m over 60?

While there is no upper age limit, several factors, including your age, do affect the cost of the policy. This is due to the fact that holidaymakers over 60 are more likely to need to make a costly claim.

Does my over 60s travel insurance change depending on where I’m going?

Yes, but not because you’re over 60. Usually, travel insurance policy prices change depending on where you’re going because different countries have different costs for medical treatment. For example, some countries have higher medical expenses than others, so travel insurance for the USA is more expensive for example.

How long can I travel for if I’m over 60?

As long as anyone else! There’s no reason your age should hold you back. Our policies do have trip limits, but these don’t depend on your age. With single-trip travel insurance, you can be abroad for 365 days if you choose to! 

Our annual multi-trip travel insurance allows you to travel as often as you like but with a duration limit on each trip. Budget policies would cover you for 31 days at a time, Silver or Gold for 45 days, and Black policies can cover unlimited trips of up to 55 days.

Do I need a GHIC card as well as travel insurance?

You should carry a free Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC – previously EHIC) whenever you travel to Europe. The GHIC will cover any necessary treatments you may receive at public hospitals on your trip. 

Remember that you still need European travel insurance to cover the costs of any unexpected medical treatment the GHIC might not cover. This includes things like transport to and from hospital or even repatriation back to the UK.

What is considered a pre-existing condition for travel insurance?

We consider a medical condition to be pre-existing if any person insured on this policy has:

  • Taken any prescribed medication or received medical treatment within the last 2 years
  • Been registered in or been an outpatient at a hospital, clinic or GP surgery in the last 2 years.
  • Been advised of a terminal illness.

You must declare any pre-existing medical conditions you have before buying travel insurance.

What happens if I don’t declare a pre-existing condition on my travel insurance?

If you don’t declare your pre-existing condition before getting your travel insurance policy, you may find that your policy becomes invalid. This will mean that you will end up having to pay extensive medical bills if the need arises, along with other costs that would previously be covered by your policy.

How far in advance should I get travel insurance?

You should get your cover as soon as you book your trip. Failing this, you should arrange cover as soon as possible. Remember that your travel insurance will only be valid if you have bought it before you leave the UK.

It’s especially important to make sure you have travel insurance if you’ve pre-booked any activities or excursions for while you’re on holiday. Policies differ, so check the wording of your policy if you have a specific activity in mind.
