Planning and protecting your holiday abroad

Things to know before you go:
  • Remember to check the latest travel advice from the FCDO for your destination. You will have no cover if you choose to travel against FCDO advice, unless that advice relates specifically to Covid-19 (check our Covid FAQs  for more details)
  • Check any entry requirements and quarantine requirements for your chosen destination
  • Choose a Travel Insurance policy that includes Covid-19 Cover
  • For information on how Covid might affect your trip, visit our dedicated FAQs page

Travel insurance with Covid cover

For your peace of mind, we offer Travel insurance with Covid cover. Our AllClear branded policies include Superior2 rated Covid cover for FREE, helping you travel safely.

Should you still get over 65 Travel Insurance if you have a GHIC card?

If you’re travelling to destinations within Europe, having a Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) may be helpful. To request a GHIC online, visit the NHS website.

Although the GHIC can cover various levels of emergency medical care, it is not a replacement or substitute for Travel Insurance. To avoid large, unexpected medical bills – you’ll need comprehensive Travel Insurance.

More than 1 in 5 (21%4) of those we surveyed aged 66-70 are hoping to get away four or more times in 2022. If you’re looking for a way to make the most of your travel opportunities, why not consider a cruise holiday? After all, it’s a great way to visit several destinations in one incredible trip!

If you do set sail, you’ll need Cruise Travel Insurance. Cruise specific cover offers standard cover plus extra benefits, including cover for;

  • Missed port departure
  • Cabin confinement
  • Itinerary change
  • Unused excursions
  • Cruise interruption

Frequently asked questions

Which Travel Insurance is recommended for over 65s?

We would recommend the type of policy depending on the type of holiday you’re planning and how often you plan to travel.

An Annual Multi-trip Travel Insurance policy is often best if you enjoy frequent travel. If you’re planning on multiple trips throughout the year, this type of policy can be better value.

Single trip Travel Insurance is best if you are only looking at one trip for the whole year.

Cruise Travel Insurance is recommended if you’re planning a cruise. This type of policy includes standard benefits and cruise specific benefits.
