At starttravel.co.uk we are able to provide single trip travel insurance for over 60’s, or, if planning more than one holiday in a year, we can also offer an over 60s annual multi-trip policy.

We even cover a range of pre-existing medical conditions within our travel insurance policies, along with a range of additional add-ons so you can truly tailor your over 60’s travel insurance policy to suit your needs.


The Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) only covers necessary medical care in EU states so you will still need travel insurance.

A GHIC will not cover any private medical care or repatriation if required.

You would also not be covered for many of the things that a travel insurance policy would provide protection for, such as missed flights, cancellations, lost luggage etc.


Whilst our travel insurance policies for over 60’s do offer a level of cover for cruise holidays, our specific cruise travel insurance add-on offers additional protection for your cruise vacation, such as missed port cover, unused excursions and cabin confinement.

Find out more about our cruise cover option.


Depending on which of our travel insurance packages you choose, we will be able to cover up to £5,000 in the event of a cancellation.

This compensation can be used to cover deposits or package holiday cancellation charges, travel costs and accommodation hire, car hire, activities and excursions, reasonable cancellation fees from pet sitting services and car parking fees.

For full details of what is covered in the event that your holiday is cancelled, please refer to the travel insurance policy terms and conditions.
