An overview of cover provided by AllClear Travel Insurance
AllClear specialises in travel insurance for most pre-existing medical conditions. There is no upper age limit for annual or single trip policies. It can be harder for people over 65 or 70 to get a quote from some other travel insurance companies.
It can offer cover for most destinations (other than those the Foreign & Commonwealth Office advises against travelling to).
We've written a guide for people travelling to countries that are considered dangerous.
AllClear Insurance works like a broker – it scans a range of insurers, based on the customer’s quote information, and then lists the best options for the specific circumstances.
You will have to disclose any medical conditions during the quote process. It asks around 10 questions about your condition, which is fewer than some travel insurance medical questionnaires.
However, it cannot quote online for all conditions so after answering the questions, when you'd expect to see a quote, you may be told to call its customer service team to see if they can give you a quote.
In addition to listing policies from other providers, it also offers its own:
AllClear Gold includes £10m medical expenses cover (excess £250), up to £2,000 for baggage (excess £75) and £2,000 cancellation cover (excess £250).
AllClear Gold Plus includes £15m medical expenses cover (excess £150), up to £2,500 for baggage (excess £75) and £5,000 cancellation cover (excess £150).
Both policies have a valuables limit of £250 but it does offer three gadget travel policies, the top level has a limit of £3,000.
AllClear also offers cheaper versions of both policies that exclude cancellation cover.
It has a policy called Traveller that is for people aged between 17 and 85 (the age limit for multi-trip is 75). It offers £10m of medical cover, £3,000 for cancellation and up to £1,000 for baggage. It also offers longer single trip lengths.
Along with its gadget add-on, it also offers travel disruption, an excess waiver, waiting list cover, travelling companion cover, airline failure, winter sports and golf cover as optional extras.
Gold and Gold Plus available as either a single trip or annual multi-trip policy (max trip length 45 days).
All customers are given access to a UK-based customer service call centre.
You can get a quote on its website or by calling its telephone number 01708 339295.

How much does AllClear Holiday Insurance cost?
The price of travel insurance is affected by many factors, such as the destination, the length of the holiday, the age of the person travelling and whether they have a medical condition.
Those with medical conditions may find prices are much higher than for standard policies.
However, AllClear is known for providing affordable quotes, even for complex situations. One customer reported she was quoted £211 for annual multi-trip cover to Europe for a family of five, despite the fact she’s had cancer twice. Single trip cover would have been £69.
