Travel insurance for over 60s with pre-existing medical conditions
As mentioned above, we work with a wide variety of medical travel insurance specialists, who provide cover for a range of pre-existing medical conditions.
You can declare your pre-existing conditions with us before comparing cover.
This refers only to conditions for which you’ve been properly diagnosed - i.e. 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 been formally diagnosed with.
This also includes 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 issue abroad.
If you’re unsure what you have to declare when applying for travel insurance for over 60s with medical conditions, then feel free to chat with our Support Team.
Here are some of the more common types of conditions we can help you find cover for:
- Heart & Circulatory
- Mental Health
Over 60s annual multi-trip or single trip cover
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.
On the other hand, if you know you’re going to be going on holiday a few times over the next year, an annual multi trip policy is probably the better option.
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.
Are there different levels of over 60s insurance cover?
When comparing cover, you’re likely to find that some providers will offer more coverage than others
Usually, travel insurance costs more if cover is enhanced in certain areas. For example, depending on the duration of your trip(s), you need long stay cover, cover for multiple trips - or even specialist cover for certain pre-existing medical conditions.
All these things have a bearing on how much cover is offered by any given policy, so you should always carefully check this prior to purchasing.
With us, you can even select one of our additional cover options before you compare quotes:Get a quote
