Over 70s Travel Insurance FAQs

Frequently asked questions about Travel Insurance for people over 70.

What is over 70s 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 those over 70 as we believe age should not be a barrier to travel.

How much does over 70s Travel Insurance cost?

How much you pay for over 70 Travel Insurance is not just based on your age, but also on 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 likely going to want to ensure your insurance covers it.
