Travel Insurance for Over 50s

We can help you find the right travel insurance for you with our over 50s travel insurance guide

Why do you need over 50s travel insurance cover?

Did you know that in 2016 insurers paid out, on average, £1 million a day – the highest rate since 2010. This included helping over 154,000 travellers with emergency medical treatment at a total cost of £100 million. However the Forgeign Office estimated that 1 in 10 over 50s don’t take out travel insurance when going aboard.

With the average cost of a medical claim being over £1,290 do you want to risk a huge medical bill, unnecessary complications and the worry whilst you are away trying to enjoy your holiday.

Travel tips for over 50s

If you only travel once or twice a year, then a single trip policy is likely to work out cheaper than an annual one. However, if you’re (or plan to be) a frequent traveller, then an annual or multi-trip policy gives you the freedom to jet off when you like but could also save you money too.

To get the most out of your policy make sure you purchase your travel insurance policy early or as soon as your trip is booked as the cancellation cover begins as soon as your policy does. The sooner you buy your travel insurance the more confident you can feel about being covered for your trip.
