Travel insurance for over 80s – Frequently asked questions

I am significantly over 80, can I still get travel insurance cover?

We have no upper age limit on our travel insurance policies, so being over 80 will not be a barrier to obtaining cover, but do remember that it is important to declare all existing medical conditions to be properly covered before you travel.

I am over 80, but travelling with my family who are all younger, can you cover all of us?

Yes we can. Although we specialise in travel insurance for over 80s, we can cover people of all ages, and we recommend that you cover your whole party on the same policy.
