Travel Insurance for over 60s FAQ

I am over 60 and looking to travel with my grandchildren, can you cover us all?

We certainly can! Although we specialise in travel insurance for over 60s, we can cover people of any age and if you are all travelling together it makes sense to be on the same travel insurance policy.

I am over 60 and use a mobility scooter when I travel, will you still insure me?

Of course! Our policies will also cover your mobility aids, including mobility scooters, wheelchairs and walking frames for loss, theft or damage whilst you are away up to £2500.

I am over 60 and planning to go hiking on holiday, will you still cover me?

Absolutely! As standard, the travel insurance policies we provide to over 60s include cover for many pursuits such as trekking and hiking to a height of up to 2000 metres.

We can also extend your cover to include hiking or trekking up to a height of 3000 metres if you’re feeling more adventurous.

More information about cover for sports and activities >>

Please note: our extended cover for sports and activities is only available up to the age of 75.

I am travelling to more than one country; do I need to list them all?

Yes. It’s important that you list all of the countries that you will be visiting when you buy our travel insurance for over 60s. This is so that you will be covered for emergency medical expenses in all of those countries.

Why does it cost more to get over 60s travel insurance for the USA?

Travel insurance is designed to cover the cost of unexpected, emergency medical expenses whilst you are away. It is expensive to buy cover for the USA because although they have one of the best medical systems in the world, it is very expensive to get treatment there. Medical bills from the USA can be considerably more expensive than medical bills from other countries.
