Get Going Travel Insurance specialises in insuring travellers who have health conditions. The company proudly states: “We don’t believe that existing medical conditions should necessarily be a barrier to travel, or mean that a travel insurance policy should cost the Earth.”

It says it offers competitive quotes, even for serious conditions such as cancer. However, you don’t have to have a medical condition to take out a policy with Get Going.

All calls are handled in-house, which is a refreshing change for customers and also enables greater monitoring of customer service. Get Going is underwritten by Travel Insurance Facilities Plc and offers a range of comprehensive cover for travellers.

Get Going offers multiple travel insurance options including single trip, long stay travel for trips of up to 18 months, winter sports extension, multi-trip, cruise, business and wedding insurance.

Get going travel insurance could be a good option for older travellers because it understands the difficulties of senior travel when there are pre-existing medical complications. Having a pre-existing medical condition therefore doesn’t prohibit travel for senior travellers even up to the age of 85.

It is part of the Infinity Insurance Solutions Group (IIS).
