Absolutely! We have no upper age limit regarding our travel insurance cover.

So, whether you’re 71 or 101 (or older!), your date of birth will not exclude you from being insured with us.

I am over 70, but travelling with someone younger, can you provide travel insurance for us both?

We can indeed. We specialise in cover for the over 70s, but can absolutely provide travel insurance cover for those they’re travelling with too, regardless of age.

If you are over 70 and planning to holiday with friends and/or family who are younger than you (children and grandchildren included) we can tailor a travel insurance policy to cover your whole party.
