If you’re over 60 and love to travel, you don’t want to have to worry about the cost of medical treatment abroad or losing out if you have to cancel your trip. That’s why you need Travel Insurance that covers you for these things. As a specialist policy, our Over 60s Travel Insurance includes extra cover, which keeps you safe should you fall ill when you travel abroad.
AllClear Travel Insurance for Over 60s includes emergency medical cover, lost luggage and has no upper age limit.
We understand you want to make the most of your travel opportunities during your 60s and that it can be challenging to find Travel Insurance to cover you. Our Annual Survey 2023 showed that 88% of over 60s have at least one medical condition, with 62% having two or more2.
AllClear offers Travel Insurance for over 60’s with pre-existing medical conditions. That means you can continue to travel safely into your retirement years and beyond.
A pre-existing medical condition is any illness or injury you’ve experienced symptoms, treatment, investigations, surgery, or medical appointments for within the last two years. It’s important to declare all pre-existing conditions on your policy.
As a specialist provider of pre-existing medical Travel Insurance, we’ve covered over 1300 different conditions, including:
High blood pressure
When buying Over 60s Travel Insurance, you must declare any pre-existing medical condition you may have. If you choose not to declare all of your conditions, your policy could be invalid.
You can declare your medical conditions and get comprehensive cover in minutes – via our website or by speaking to one of our trained professionals over the phone.
Medical expenses : We cover costs for emergency medical treatment while abroad. This includes medical bills for any pre existing medical condition.
Holiday cancellation : Should you need to cancel your trip due to health problems or other valid reasons, you’ll be covered for up to £25K.
Travel disruption and delays : We’ll cover you should your travel plans change for reasons outside of your control.
Lost baggage : Our insurance policies mean you’re covered for your lost luggage, as well as your items being damaged or stolen.
Medical conditions you fail to declare : In order for AllClear to give you with the right cover, you need to provide us with an accurate medical history when you buy Travel Insurance. This is especially vital for senior travellers, and those with long term illness.
Airline actions which impacts on your trip : In the event of a strike, you would need to contact the airline directly.
High risk activities : Some activities are not covered by our standard Travel Insurance. However extra protection is available for an additional premium.
Trips to places that the FCDO has advised against : As these destinations are deemed a higher risk we cannot provide any cover if you visit them against FCDO advice.
Missed departure within your control : While we know that things can go wrong, we can’t cover you if you miss your transport because of poor time management or errors on your end.
You deciding not to travel : We only offer cancellation cover for approved reason, such as illness, injury or bereavement. For full details please see your policy documents.
While our policies have no upper age limit, the cost of the policy will depend on a number of factors, including your age, previous medical treatment, your chosen cover level and destination.
Pre-existing medical conditions: Your policy premium can change, depending on your medical history. It is always best to declare your conditions correctly when you buy Travel Insurance, and check it is up to date before your trip.
Your destination: As some countries have higher medical costs, or are generally higher risk destinations, your premium may increase if you visit these places.
How long you’re going for: The longer your trip, the more likely you are to make a claim.
The type of policy you choose: The level of cover you choose when you buy cover affects how much your Travel Insurance costs.
There are a few types of cover available to travellers over 60.
Single trip Travel Insurance: Our single trip policies are perfect if you’re only planning to travel once over a 12 month period. They offer holiday cover for your destination of choice for trips of up to 365 days long.
Annual policy: If you’re travelling more than once then consider our annual multi trip policies, which cover multiple trips without having to buy separate policies. This is often cheaper then buying individual single trip policies.
Family travel insurance: You can cover all your family members under one policy and know that everyone has the same level of protection when you travel. No need to worry about sorting out cover from different providers if you need to claim.
