How easy is it to get a quote from Able2Travel?
There are three options available for getting a quote from Able2Travel:
- Filling out the online quote form. This can be a confusing and inefficient process. You have to put in basic details like age and dates of cover first, then you get a quote. After choosing the type of cover you would like (Standard or Double) you are asked whether you want to add any extensions (golf, cruise, etc.) and then you go through the medical questionnaire. But for some medical conditions, it is unable to give you a quote online. If you have a medical condition and wish to get a quote from Able2Travel, it is recommended you contact them by one of the alternative methods listed below
- Calling 01892 839 501 for a quote (lines are open Monday-Friday - 09:00-17:30 and Saturday - 9:00-17:00)
- Completing a call-back request form online and a specialist will call you back (usually within the hour on weekdays)
How much does cover from Able2Travel cost?
The cost of travel insurance varies widely depending on the personal details of the person travelling, the duration of the trip and the destination.
As Able2Travel specialises in offering cover for pre-existing medical conditions, providing a useful quote prediction is even harder, as each traveller’s specific conditions are likely to affect the cost of the premium.
Does Able2Travel cover over 65s, 70s and 80s?
Single trip policies cover passengers up to the age of 85 (at the time of departure) and multi-trip insurance covers people up to the age of 74.
The maximum days per trip allowed for people over the age of 65 is 45 days, and 31 days for those over the age of 80 (184 days is the maximum for people aged 64 and under).
The maximum age for winter sports cover is 79.
Does Able2Travel cover terminal conditions?
No. You may still be able to get cover through Able2Travel if you have a terminal diagnosis, but any claims related directly or indirectly to this condition will not be included.
Are discounts available for insurance from Able2Travel?
We were not able to find discount codes for Able2Travel Insurance on third-party websites, but the company does offer some discounts for couples and families, as well as special rates for single-parent families. Kids under 2 travel free.
