Travel Insurance Over 65

A new group for people over 65 to club together and get a fairer deal on travel insurance

About this group

If you're over 65, travel insurance becomes increasingly difficult & expensive to arrange.

We think that's unfair to older people who enjoy travel, and we want to do something about it.

Age is mainly a concern for UK insurance companies because most of their costs come from people requiring medical treatment when they're on holiday. They believe that people over 65 are more likely to have medical conditions, and more likely to become unwell when they're away - both of which might lead to making a claim on their holiday insurance. As a result, many won't insure over 65s at all, while others put prices up significantly.

Holiday insurance over 70 and over 75 - even if you've been given the all clear by your doctor - is even harder to get. Over 80, travel insurance is nothing less than a saga.

But we think the extra costs companies charge to insure people over 65 are too much. So, we've created this group. Our promise was that if 100 people registered interest, we would open a dialogue with insurance companies, to negotiate cheap travel insurance for the group. And that's exactly what we've done - you can read about this in the Current Offer section.

If you have friends who like to travel, why not invite them to join the group too? The more people we have on board, the better the offers we can agree. Hopefully that will mean you can enjoy your skiing trip, cruise, or long stay overseas that little bit more.
