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

  Annual or single trip insurance?
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.

  Cancellation cover
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.

Will over 50s travel insurance cover pre-existing medical conditions?

Yes, it can. Over 50s travel insurance can cover a wide range of pre-existing medical conditions. When you start a travel insurance quote, you will be asked a few simple medical. screening questions. You will be asked to give some basic details about your condition(s) as well as any medication or treatment you are receiving.

How long can over 50s travel insurance cover?

Over 50s travel insurance can either be purchased on a single trip or multi-trip basis. If you're going on two or more holidays in a year, it might work out cheaper for you to take out an annual multi-trip policy, which will cover you for multiple trips across a whole year.

When should I arrange my travel insurance?

It is always beneficial to arrange insurance as soon as a holiday is booked, so that your money is protected. With a single trip, your cancellation cover starts as soon as you purchase your insurance. With an annual policy, the cancellation element starts on the date you indicate for the insurance to begin.
