What is over 60s travel insurance?

Looking to spend some of your golden years on golden sands? Not a bad idea, though the older you are the riskier travelling can become. If you want to spend some time getting away from it all, you don’t want to worry about what will happen if you fall ill on holiday or if you lose your camera. Travelling after 60 should be fun and hassle free, and so consider a suitable travel insurance policy for peace of mind.

    • If you fall ill or injure yourself abroad, hospital costs and emergency transport home could be expensive
    • Most insurers offer a 24 hour helpline so you could get advice in an emergency
    • We compare travel insurance for pre-existing medical conditions, so you could still enjoy a hassle-free trip
