Why do you need over 60’s Travel Insurance?

Travel insurance for over 60s covers you if you’re over 60 and have any pre-existing medical conditions. This means you’ll be covered for any medical emergencies while away and will not need to worry about unexpected medical bills. Over 60s Travel Insurance offers peace of mind knowing you have comprehensive cover, including enhanced cover for Covid-19.

Frequently Asked Questions About Travel Insurance for over 60’s

Does being over 60 affect how long you can travel on the over 60’s travel insurance policy?

We’re pleased to say that no matter your age, you can travel up to:

Does the over 60’s travel insurance cover include repatriation?

Yes – always! Cover for repatriation to your Home Country also extends to any other travelling member who is listed on your policy.

Can you get over 60’s cover if you’re on a waiting list for a treatment?

Yes, just be sure to answer that you are on a waiting list for treatment during the Medical Warranty section of your quote.

Plus, if you’d like to be covered for cancelling your holiday due being on the waiting list, simply Waiting List cover as an optional extra.

Can someone else join your travel insurance policy if they’re under 60?

Yes they can.

Being on the same policy as a friend or family member also has the great benefit of mutual cancellation cover should one of you need it.

How often can you travel with over 60’s travel insurance?

With our over 60’s annual multi-trip travel insurance, you can take any number of trips during the year. Rather than needing to tell us exactly where you’ll be, you only need to select your preferred region of the cover.

However, there are restrictions on the length of time you can be away for any one trip.

Where can you travel to with AllClear’s over 60’s travel insurance?

We cover all destinations.  For a single trip policy, simply enter the name of the country you are visiting. For an annual policy, you have three regions to choose from: Europe, Worldwide excluding North America, and Worldwide including North America.

What’s the difference between single trip or annual multi-trip travel insurance for over 60’s?

It’s quite simple.

→ Single trip travel insurance: Covers you for a one-off trip on selected dates only. You can travel up to 92 days.
→ Annual multi-trip travel insurance: Allows you unlimited travel throughout the entire year! This is perfect if you’re planning on getting away a few times in the next 12 months because it’s cheaper than buying several single trip travel insurance policies.

The maximum trip duration does change between annual multi-trip policies.

As an example, you can travel up to 45 days per trip for unlimited trips with the AllClear Gold and Gold Plus annual multi-trip cover.  And if needed, you can easily extend this with additional days for only a small premium.

Which pre-existing medical conditions are not covered?

AllClear can cover ALL pre-existing medical conditions. However, travel insurance is based on an individual’s circumstance rather than the condition alone. Therefore the only way to know if you can get cover is to declare all your pre-existing medical conditions during the medical screening process.

Are there any exclusions for over 60’s travel insurance?

No, there are not.  Winter Sports is available as an Optional Extra up to the age of 76 on AllClear Gold and Gold Plus policies!

What’s more, we have a diverse list of Optional Extras available to further boost your cover, such as:

  • Travelling Companion
  • Waiting List
  • Travel Disruption
  • Golf cover

How can we help you find over 60’s travel insurance for pre-existing medical conditions?

Most travel insurance policies are optional, but if you recently have or had a medical condition such as diabetes, high blood pressure or stroke, buying medical travel insurance might be a pre-requisite to your travel.

We are an experienced medical travel insurance provider. Many of our customers have pre-existing medical conditions. For most medical conditions we can provide full cover, including cancer, heart disease, and diabetes.
