Travellers over a certain age have particular cover needs for their holiday. This type of cover offers protection against unexpected medical expenses while you’re away and cancellation costs before you go.
Our AllClear branded policies include Superior2 rated Covid cover for peace of mind.
It is common to have multiple or complex health conditions as we get older. Only around 4 in 10 (44%) of those under 50 have numerous pre-existing medical conditions.
In comparison, at least 1 in 2 (59%) of those over 653. Despite how common it is for older travellers to have a medical condition, it can be challenging to find comprehensive Travel Insurance to cover you.
At AllClear, we believe that age shouldn’t limit your travel opportunities. No one likes to think of the possibility of something going wrong on their holiday.
However, should the worst go wrong while you’re away, with AllClear’s senior citizen Travel Insurance, you’ll have our support.
Despite being at high risk with complex medical conditions, AllClear, as a Specialist Medical Travel Insurance provider, was able to help avid traveller Chris Smith enjoy many adventurous holidays throughout his 70s. He didn’t let his age or heart problems stop his love of travel. Discover his story for inspiration on your next trip.
When choosing your policy, you must declare your medical conditions via our medical screening process. This can be done online or over the phone. Why is it so important to declare all pre-existing conditions? Failure to disclose any pre-existing medical conditions may affect the validity of your policy should you need to claim. Here are a few examples of pre-existing medical conditions we cover.
The number of Britons planning an overseas summer holiday has almost doubled since this time last year, rising from 34% to 64%4. Europe is proving to be a popular choice for many travellers. Forbes reports that travel to Europe will soar by an eye-popping 600%. Here’s what to expect this summer if you visit Europe. Seniors are driving the market. 46% of over 65-year-olds are planning a holiday abroad this summer, up from 33% last year4.
At least 1 in 4 (25%5) of retirement age are hoping to travel more than they did pre-pandemic. While we’re all delighted lockdown is in the past, Travel Insurance with Covid Cover is still essential. Our Seniors Travel Insurance includes Superior2 rated Covid cover to help you travel safely worldwide.
Senior Travel Insurance UK is also worth considering to protect against cancellation costs when taking a staycation. For any Covid related scenario-based questions, visit our Covid FAQs.
Cruises are a great way for senior citizens to see the world. More than 1 in 3 (36%6) of those we surveyed aged 81+ are interested a cruise holiday. We don’t have any upper age limits on our cruise cover. So you can set sail at any age.
As a Senior traveller, you’ll need Travel Insurance for a cruise to cover your specific needs. It covers all that offers all the benefits found on a standard policy. Additionally, it provides extra benefits to help protect against cruise specific problems.
A Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) is helpful for travellers of all ages when taking a trip to Europe. Money-saving expert Martin Lewis urges travellers to ensure they’ve got a valid GHIC before travelling. He includes checking the validation of your GHIC card as one of his 10 important checks before heading to the airport.
However, the scheme only gives you access to the default state healthcare system within a given country. Therefore it is not a substitute for Travel Insurance. To protect yourself and your trip, you’ll need comprehensive Senior Travel Insurance.
