Over 60s’ Travel Insurance

Many people over 60 enjoy booking a dream holiday, or travelling to destinations that they might not have previously had the chance to visit. Whether you are travelling to Europe or further afield, starttravel.co.uk travel insurance is available to travellers up to the age of 70*. Some of the benefits of our 5 Star policy are;

  • Up to 185 days covered on single trips
  • No excess to pay
  • Emergency medical expenses up to £15,000,000
  • Cancellation up to £4,000
  • Personal effects and possessions up to £2,500
  • Legal expenses up to £30,000

From only £9.48* for a week in Europe!

If you would prefer to buy a policy that lasts an entire year, our over 60s’ annual travel insurance is great value as it will cover you to be away for up to 31 days at a time, as many times as you wish over the year. Even if you are planning longer trips, you may extend your policy to 60 days per trip by paying a little more.

Nobody wants to stop partaking in the activities they enjoy and we realise that travellers over 60 are often more raring to go than those who are much younger. Active pursuits abroad are often part of making the most of visiting a new country. Skiing for instance is great exercise and can be very enjoyable for all ages. This is why we make our Winter Sports option available to add to policies for people up to the age of 64. We are also able to cover you for a wide range of activities at no additional charge.

Having to pay an excess in the event of a claim reduces the amount that you can claim back. Our 5 Star policy is therefore a great option as there is no excess to pay. With this policy, you will then feel reassured in the knowledge that you would receive every penny back* should the worst happen. If you plan to go on a cruise or intend to take gadgets such as smart phones or tablets on your trip with you, you can also add gadget and cruise cover to your policy.

It could not be easier to get a quote for over 60s’ travel insurance, as our fast and efficient quoting system will guide you through. If you prefer to do this over the phone, please call us on 0333 320 1240 and speak to one of our friendly team, open Monday to Friday, 09:00 – 17:30. Alternatively you can email enquiries@starttravel.co.uk with any queries. We realise that searching for cover for a long awaited trip is something to consider carefully, so if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
