Over 90’s Travel Insurance with No Age Limits?

- The FCO must NOT have advised against travel to your destination
- You must follow the local government advice for your destination, checking and following their guidelines and entry requirements

Travel Tips for Over 90’s
Consider adding these steps to your holiday checklist.
- Schedule a visit to your GP for a medical examination and to get travel advice. Mention your destination and ask your GP about any precautions you should take. For example, if you’re taking medication on a regular schedule, ask your doctor about adjusting that schedule to fit different time zones. Also, make sure you have enough medication to cover the whole trip AND some extra for delays or emergencies
- When it comes to packing, be strategic. Keep all your medications in your hand luggage where you can, and keep an eye on it. Some medication may require syringes or injection pens, so it’s also essential to have a medical certificate for these as well as a note from your doctor detailing your prescription
- Consider using a tour operator specialising in trips for senior travellers. However, many hotels, airlines, and airports are happy to accommodate people with different needs, so don’t be afraid to make your needs known ahead of time
- All UK airports offer an assistance service for passengers with reduced mobility (PRM). Note that this isn’t for disabled passengers only – it covers anyone who has difficulty walking. The service is needs-dependant, which means you can receive help from your arrival to checking-in and through to boarding
- Get to know your travel insurance documents, making a note of any emergency numbers should you need to use them. Even better, save them to your phone or tablet for ease of access. If you lose your documents, just give us a call on 0800 640 4811 or chat to us online. We’ll send you replacement documents in no time!
What travel insurance is best for seniors?
The best travel insurance for senior citizens should provide cover for any pre-existing medical conditions wiith no upper age limits. That way, those that are aged over-90 can travel with peace of mind.
What is long stay travel insurance?
Long stay travel insurance covers you for any period up to 12 months where you’ll be travelling. However, your policy may limit the number of days you can travel on one trip to around 31-45 days.
FAQs about over 90’s travel insurance
Does the over 90’s travel insurance cover sports and other activities?
We cover a whole range of activities with no additional cost (check your policy booklet), but you can also add on specific Golf and Winter Sports cover for an additional cost.
Should you get single trip or annual multi-trip cover?
Single trip travel insurance is a policy that covers you for a one-off trip on selected dates. It has the great benefit of allowing you to travel for longer: up to 92 days online.
If you’re planning on getting away a few times in the next 12 months, buying an annual multi-trip policy can be cheaper. Also, annual cover gives you the freedom to travel as many times as you like throughout the year!
The maximum trip duration does change between annual multi-trip policies, and you can view them here: Maximum trip durations. As an example, you can travel up to 45 days per trip on AllClear Gold and Gold Plus annual multi-trip cover – however old you are. And you can even pay a little bit more to get an extension for up to 55 days!
What if you are on a waiting list for treatment?
We’re pleased to say you can include Waiting list cover on AllClear Gold and Gold Plus policies.
Does the over 90’s travel insurance cover damages from natural disasters?
To be covered for natural disasters, such as a hurricane or earthquake, you can add our Optional Extra of Travel Disruption.
How often can you travel with over 90's annual travel insurance?
For AllClear Gold and Gold Plus annual multi-trip policies, 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 may be restrictions on how many times you can travel in 12 months for other providers on our quote panel.
How is the cost of over 90’s travel insurance calculated?
A number of factors are taken into consideration when calculating premiums. These include: The destination to which you are traveling (for example, Spain, the United States, and Canada are among the more expensive countries in which to receive medical treatment); the duration of your trip; the type and severity of your medical conditions and your age and the level of benefits being offered to you.
Also, quote premiums vary by the provider because they can offer different levels of cover, excesses, and upgrades.
How to make sure you are ‘Fit to travel’?
You don’t need to provide us with a certificate from your doctor, but you will need to confirm you’re fit to travel at the time of getting a quote or purchasing a policy. If you need to make a claim, you may require a letter from your doctor confirming that you were fit to travel at the time you bought your policy, and the date when you were declared unfit to travel.
What if you buy an over 90’s travel policy then your medical conditions change?
If you have bought an over 90’s travel policy and you need to amend a detail of your declared medical conditions then simply get in touch at the earliest possible opportunity and we will update your details.
It’s important to let us know of any changes before you travel to ensure your policy is the most up to date and you’re still covered.
How can we help you find over 90'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.
What counts as a pre-existing medical condition?
There are some medical conditions that you always need to declare:
- Any respiratory conditions, heart conditions, any neurological conditions (including stroke and epilepsy), cancer, blood circulatory conditions, any diabetic conditions, any renal, liver or kidney conditions, any psychiatric or psychological conditions (including anxiety, stress and depression).
If your medical condition is not in the above categories, you only need to tell us about anything for which you have received surgery, in or out-patient treatment, tests or investigations for in a hospital, clinic or GP surgery within the last 24 months. Or any medical condition for which you have been prescribed medication in the last 5 years.
