Travel insurance tips for over 80s

Here are a couple of our tips to help you choose the right level of travel insurance over 80 to suit you and your holiday.

Get the right level of cancellation cover: Think about the cost of your holiday. Make sure that the cancellation cover provided by your travel insurance policy is enough to cover the cost of your holiday, so that you can make a claim to recoup the cost if you need to cancel your holiday due to illness before you depart. 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.

Choose the right level of cover for your personal possessions: Consider the value of possessions that you will be taking with you and choose an over 80s travel insurance policy with baggage cover that reflects that value.

Remember, the benefits and limits listed by Goodtogoinsurance.com for our over 80 travel insurance are per person. For example all of our travel insurance policies include cover for emergency medical expenses up to £10 million; this is per person, not per policy.

Reviews: Single trip & annual travel insurance
