Over 80s Travel Insurance FAQs

Frequently asked questions about our Over 80s Travel Insurance deals.

What is Over 80s Travel Insurance?

The older we get, the more important it is to get the right Travel Insurance, but the harder it can be to find, especially if you have pre-existing medical conditions. At Just Travel Cover, we use a panel of insurers, some of which have no age limit, meaning we can provide Travel Insurance for over 80s or OAPs with medical conditions. We cover hundreds of pre-existing medical conditions, so you can travel with peace of mind.

What does over 80s Travel Insurance cover?

If you arrange your over 80s Travel Insurance as soon as you’ve booked your holiday, you will be covered for trip cancellation. That way, if you need to cancel your trip for an insured reason, you’re protected. When you set off on holiday, you can relax knowing you have Holiday Insurance in place. If something should go wrong, know that you’re covered for emergency medical treatment (including for your pre-existing medical conditions) as well as cover for your baggage should they be lost, stolen or damaged. For an additional premium, we offer smart luggage which offers real-time payments to your bank account should your luggage is delayed or lost.

Where can I go with Travel Insurance that covers the over 80s age group?

It can sometimes be difficult to get Travel Insurance if you’re over 80 and travelling to certain long-haul destinations such as the USA, Canada, or Australia. At Just Travel Cover, we have policies with no upper age limit on single trips to any destination in the world, and we will only ever show you policies that will provide cover for your age, destination, duration of trip and medical history. The comparison is done for you! Note that all quotations are subject to medical screening.

How much does over 80s Travel Insurance cost?

Our over 80s Travel Insurance policies are personalised to you and your needs. Therefore, the costs will differ depending on your circumstances, destination and length of your trip, as well as how far in advance you arrange cover. It’s important to remember that Travel Insurance for those over 80 is there to cover unforeseen costs like medical expenses, should you need emergency treatment on holiday. These bills can easily run into the thousands, and it’s reassuring to know you have adequate Travel Insurance for your age and medical conditions in place. For most quotations, we will provide a bronze, silver and gold level of cover so that you have the option to compare and take a policy to best suit your needs and budget.

Can I get Travel Insurance if I’m over 80 with a heart condition?

Yes, we have insurers on our panel with no age limit that specialise in Over 80s Travel Insurance for pre-existing medical conditions, including heart conditions such as angina or an irregular heartbeat. We can also provide over 80s Travel Insurance if you have had a heart attack. To get adequate cover, you need to declare your conditions during the medical screening process and answer the questions honestly.

Can I get Travel Insurance over 80 with diabetes?

Yes, we specialise in over 80s Travel Insurance for the elderly and all pre-existing medical conditions, including travel cover for type 1 and type 2 diabetes. When getting a quote online or over the phone we will ask you a few questions regarding insulin and hospital visits as well as your age and destination and then show you a list of options from the insurers on our panel that can provide cover.

Can I get Travel Insurance if I’m over 80 and living with cancer?

It is our aim to help you find Travel Insurance at any age, including if you’re over 80, and living with pre-existing medical conditions, including cancer. We have policies with no age limit (single trip) and are able to provide cover for most types of cancer, including breast cancer, prostate cancer and skin cancer. You should make sure the exact type of cancer is declared on your policy, and you answer all questions appropriately – we will then show you a list of providers that can provide the cover you need.

If I’m over 80 can I get Travel Insurance to cover mental health conditions?

Yes, if you’re in your 80s and living with a mental health condition such as anxiety and depression, it’s important to be covered for these when you travel. When getting a quote online, you may be prompted to call us so we can explain the options for each insurer on our panel and provide the option to include or exclude these conditions. Our policies have up to £15m medical cover so you can travel safely knowing that you’ve got the right support if the unexpected happens. Find out more on our pre-existing medical condition page.

What options are available for life insurance for over 80 year olds in the UK?

Life insurance policies for individuals over 80 can vary, with options ranging from whole life to term insurance. It’s important to compare policies to find one that meets your specific needs and budget. At Just Travel Cover, we have partnered with the UK’s number 1 rated Life Insurance experts, iam|INSURED. They provide guaranteed life insurance if you are between 50-80 years old. Visit our life insurance page and see if there is a policy for you. Please note that over 80s life insurance is not the same as Travel Insurance, and you still need to take out a Travel Insurance policy when going on holiday.

What should old age pensioners (OAPs) consider when looking for Travel Insurance?

When seeking Travel Insurance for OAPs or old-age pensioners, you should consider a Travel Insurance policy that covers pre-existing medical conditions, an adequate cancellation cover that exceeds all expenses of the trip, and high medical cover with repatriation included. At Just Travel Cover, we will ask you a series of questions and then only show you policies that match your travel requirements, including Travel Insurance for OAPs policies tailored towards pensioners over 80.

Can I get Travel Insurance without medical cover?

No, medical cover is a crucial part of Travel Insurance, especially for travellers with pre-existing medical conditions or old age pensioners (OAPs) and those going to destinations where healthcare is expensive. At Just Travel Cover, we can offer emergency medical expenses and repatriation up to £10 million per person.

It is important to secure over 80s Travel Insurance with medical cover, as even in countries where medical expenses are covered by a UK GHIC or UK EHIC card, it is not a replacement for Travel Insurance. For example, the card will not cover being flown back to the UK (medical repatriation), treatment in a private medical facility, or ski or mountain rescue.

If you are holidaying in the UK, Staycation Travel Insurance can provide cover against loss or theft of baggage, cancellation, and curtailment.

Are cruises a good option for holidays for over 80s?

Cruises can be an excellent option for holidays for over 80s, as they offer a variety of onboard amenities and the chance to explore multiple destinations in a comfortable, accessible manner. Many cruise lines cater to older travellers with specific needs. Visit our Senior Cruise page for tips on cruise holidays over 80.
