An easy and straightforward website"An easy and straightforward website ! For an oldie who doesn't like technology ! Holiday insurance was done in 5 minutes !" Mr & Mrs Herdman - review from Trustpilot
Good for this old man :Oz and UAE for a month"Obtained the required Insurance for travel with easily understood form. It was half the price of another broker and one that claimed to be inexpensive and comprehensive reused cover, despite its claim to be highly recommended and the most popular insurance for older and thus medically compromised travellers!" David - review from Trustpilot
Buy travel insurance as soon as you've booked your holiday
It's important to buy your travel insurance as soon as you have booked your holiday so that you are covered for cancellation if you unable to travel. Cancellation costs can be claimed when specific circumstances such as illness of you or a close relative, being called for Jury Service or redundancy mean you are unable to travel as planned. See policy wording for the full list of circumstances where cancellation costs are covered.
Another good reason to buy travel insurance as soon as possible after booking your holiday is to ensure that you have travel insurance cover in place if a strike is called which could affect your trip.
In order to be covered under the Travel Delay and Abandonment section of your travel insurance, you must have booked your holiday and bought your insurance policy before a strike is announced. In the current climate, you never know when a strike will be called, so it pays to buy travel insurance over 65 cover immediately after you've booked your holiday.

Is there an upper age limit on travel insurance?
- Good To Go Insurance can cover travelers of all ages, so if you’re looking for travel insurance for over 65s, over 70s or even over 90s we could be able to cover you, even with most pre-existing medical conditions.
Do I need a GHIC card?
- If you are traveling to Europe, you do need a GHIC card. You can apply for one to prove your right to access state provided healthcare during a temporary stay in the EU. The GHIC is free of charge and can be obtained via the NHS website.
Do I need over 65 travel insurance if I have a GHIC?
- When there is a reciprocal health agreement in place, such as the GHIC within Europe, you may get healthcare at the same cost as a local (which may or may not be free of charge), but it won’t cover your costs if you need to stay longer or require alternative transport home. That’s where over 65 travel insurance and repatriation cover comes in. Without it you would either have to foot the bill yourself or stay overseas until you are well enough to return home on a standard flight.
Repatriation can mean varying degrees of support and assistance for your return journey, as deemed medically necessary, including:
- Arranging and paying for an alternative flight because you missed your pre-booked flight due to receiving medical treatment.
- Organising more than one seat on a plane because you are required to keep your leg raised or lay flat. Providing a stretcher if you are required to lay flat.
- Providing a medical escort to monitor your condition throughout your journey.
- Providing an air ambulance to get you back to a hospital in the UK.
- We have a medical team who are experienced in aviation medicine, they will advise on both the timing and method of repatriation which is best suited to your individual needs and your recovery. Remember, coming home straight away is not always an option even if you are considered ‘fit to fly’ by the treating doctor. If you do need to stay overseas for longer due to receiving emergency medical treatment our travel insurance policies also cover additional travel and accommodation costs for you and any one other person who is required for medical reasons to stay with you.
Can I get travel insurance for over 65 with medical conditions?
- Yes. Goodtogo insurance can offer cover for over 65 travel insurance with pre existing medical conditions of most types, sometimes up to a high level of severity, with no age limits. You will be asked to declare your pre-existing medical conditions when you get a quotation.
What’s a pre-existing medical condition?
- If the answer to any part of the following question is "yes", then there is a pre-existing medical condition and you must declare the relevant condition(s) when purchasing your travel insurance:
- Have you or anyone in your party been prescribed medication, or received treatment or attended a medical practitioner's surgery in the last 2 years
- attended a hospital or clinic as an out-patient or in-patient in the last two years
