Over 70s Travel Insurance FAQ’s

Frequently asked questions about Travel Insurance for people over 70.

What is over 70's travel insurance?

Travel Insurance for over 70’s is designed to keep you protected while you are on holiday, and leading up to your trip.

Standard travel insurance policies may have upper-age limits and not cover certain age groups, especially those over 70 with pre-existing medical conditions.

Just Travel Cover works with a wide range of Travel Insurance providers to provide policies for over 70’s as we believe age should not be a barrier to travel.

How much does travel insurance cost if I'm over 70?

How much you pay for Travel Insurance is not just based on your age, but also where you’re going, for how long, whether the trip includes a cruise and your medical history. It also depends what level of cover you want/need – for example if your holiday costs £5,000 you only need £5,000 cancellation cover, but if the holiday costs £30,000 you’re liklely going to want to ensure your insurance covers it.

When you get a quote from Just Travel Cover you will see a list of policies, sorted by price, based on your own circumstances, so we’re comparing prices for you to find the best possible deal from our insurers. 

When should you purchase your over 70's travel insurance?

You should buy Travel Insurance as soon as you have booked your trip – that’s because on single trip policies cancellation cover starts immediately, so if something happens that means you can no longer go on your holiday you may able to claim back the monies you have paid. On annual policies cancellation cover starts on the day your policy starts, which can be up to 90 days in the future. Terms apply.

Do pre-existing medical conditions affect the cost of my insurance if i'm over 70?

You should declare all pre-existing medical conditions when arranging Travel Insurance. The policy will then cover the cost of care for any medical condition you have had in the past or suffer from now. 

Where can I go with Travel Insurance that covers the over 70’s?

We know retirement often means more time to explore the world, and if you’re over 70 we can help find Travel Insurance that enables you to travel anywhere, as long as the FCDO does not advise against travel. Having the right policy in place will provide peace of mind that you’re protected should something not go to plan. Depending on where you’re travelling you can get a single trip policy for holidays up to 180 days if you’re aged between 70-75, and 124 days if aged 76-80. Annual multi trip travel insurance is available if you’re over 70 too, with a maximum trip length of 31 days.

How much does over 70’s travel insurance cost?

When you’re over 70 and especially if you have pre-existing medical conditions it’s important you have the right cover in place, so always look at what’s covered, as well as the price – this is not the same for all insurers.

When calculating the price of a Travel Insurance policy insurers will take a range of factors into consideration including your age and medical history, as well as where you’re going, how long for and whether you’re on a cruise.

The price can aslo be impacted by the amount of cover you want/need, for example if your holiday costs £30,000 you will need more cover than if it was £3,000.  We’ll compare prices from a range of insurers with bronze, silver and gold options and you may have the option to remove cancellation or baggage cover too (if you don’t feel like you need it), which can reduce the price.
