Guide to over 60 travel insurance

Medical Travel Compared helps you find the cheapest over 60s medical travel insurance. As you get older, finding good holiday cover at a reasonable price can be tricky. Especially if you have a pre-existing medical condition to declare.

But with our website, you can compare prices from insurance providers across the UK – and choose the one most suitable for you. All you have to do is click here to answer a few questions, and compare quotes for free.

How to get cheaper over 60s travel insurance

The best way to get cheaper over 60s travel insurance is to compare quotes on our website. Some insurance providers can offer more competitive rates for over 60s than others. Separating those competitive rates from the more expensive ones can be tricky. But at Medical Travel Compared, we do it for you.

We just need some basic information about you, and any pre-existing medical conditions you might have, and we’ll perform a thorough search of all the major insurance providers.

And cheap travel insurance for over 60s can be found at any time. You can use our comparison service whenever you go on holiday, or if your annual policy needs to be renewed.

Be aware, however, of exactly what your insurance policy covers. Cheaper might not always be better – not if it doesn’t cover a pre-existing medical condition you might have. That’s why it’s important to always declare a condition you have, or have had in the past.

We can filter policies to meet your exact requirements. It doesn’t matter if you’re visiting another European country, or travelling further afield. Whether you’re going on a cruise holiday, or taking up the adventurous sport of skiing.

We do not give preference to any insurance provider. Our priority is to ensure our customers are covered properly and at the best available price.

Single trip holiday insurance for over 60’s

You can buy medical travel insurance for a single trip with the help of Medical Travel Compared. If you’re only planning to holiday abroad once in the next year, this is probably the best way to go.

For over 60s, especially those with a medical condition, multiple trips overseas might not be possible over a 12-month period. So buying an annual policy is probably not a good idea.

That being said, it’s still worth comparing the cost of a single trip versus an annual policy. If the latter isn’t that much more expensive, it might be worth going for it. You never know – you might have that impulse to book a last minute trip away!

Annual multi-trip travel insurance for over 60’s

Find the best annual travel insurance plan for over 60s by comparing quotes with Medical Travel Compared.

If you know you’re going to be going on holiday a few times over the next year, an annual policy is probably the better option. Multiple single-trip policies will probably be more expensive.

Sorting out your insurance can be a bit of a hassle for some people – so it’s good if you only have to worry about it once a year.

Even if you’ve only got one holiday booked for now, it’s a good idea to compare prices between a single-trip policy and an annual plan. Then you can make an informed decision.

Travel insurance for over 60’s with pre-existing medical conditions

If you’re over 60 and living with a pre-existing medical condition, arranging travel insurance can be difficult. But we’re confident you can find the perfect solution with Medical Travel Compared.

We work with a wide variety of medical travel insurance specialists, who offer cover for all sorts of different conditions – from mild to severe.

Don’t forget to declare any conditions for which you’ve had surgery, or treatment, in the last two years – plus any cancerous, stroke, heart or breathing conditions you’ve ever had diagnosed.

As well as any conditions for which you take prescribed medication for. Failing to do so could invalidate your policy, and the last thing you want to discover is that you’re not covered should you face a medical crisis on holiday.

If you’re unsure what you have to declare when applying for travel insurance for over 60s with medical conditions, then chat with our Support Team.

Frequently Asked Questions

A pre-existing condition is a diagnosed medical condition that existed prior to taking out a policy. We'll ask a series of questions about the medical history for you and any travellers on your quote. If you answer yes to any of these, you will need to tell us about the travellers conditions. This could be a condition that a traveller has now, or has had in the past. If you are not sure what conditons you need to declare, we have online support available to help you 24/7!

It's really simple and quick to do! After you've told us about your trip details and answered some medical history questions you can add your pre-exisiting conditions, one by one, for each traveller. You'll only need to enter your details once, it's all online and there's no need to call, or provide details of your conditions in writing.

Once you've declared all of your relevant pre-exisiting medical conditions we'll only show you quotes basend on the condiitons you have told us about.

No, we are unable to provide cover with any of your pre-exisiting medical conditions excluded.

You will need to add each country that you are visiting. If you are on a flight stopover this will include any countries where you leave the airport. If you are on a cruise it include any countries where your ship will be docking at.
