frequently asked questions

can I get travel insurance if I am over 60?

yes, being over 60-years-old will not stop you from getting good value travel insurance that meets your travel needs. simply let us know a few details about you, your health and the trip you have planned and, where possible, we’ll match you with a range of policies that suit your needs.

why does travel insurance get more expensive after 60?

typically, as you get older, you may develop more medical conditions, which can be one of the reasons that the price of a travel insurance policy goes up a little. at albert & eddie, our specialist medical screening tool allows us to get a better understanding of your overall health. meaning, if necessary, we will only match you with specialist medical travel insurance policies that will offer cover for your medical condition. 

which is the best travel insurance for over 60s?

when taking out a travel insurance policy, it is important to work out exactly what type of cover you need for your trip. ultimately, the best policy for you is the one that covers your travel and your personal needs, whether that’s a particular medical condition, a certain activity you wish to take part in, or even a really expensive trip that needs a higher cancellation limit. simply let us know what type of holiday you plan on going on during the quote process, as well as a couple of details about you and your fellow travellers, and we’ll do our very best to match you with a policy that suits your individual needs.

which policies can you get if you are over 60?

generally, there are no restrictions on what types of travel insurance policies you can buy if you are over 60, and the right policy for you will be determined by your individual travel needs.

for example, if you travel a couple of times a year, then a multi trip policy may be better for you. planning a longer trip? why not look at a longstay policy, which will cover you for up to 18 months? or just need protection for a one-off adventure? then a single trip might be more suitable. the options are endless, so finding the right policy for you shouldn’t be too complicated as long as you have an idea of what you want and need.

do albert & eddie travel insurance policies offer cover for medical conditions for those over 60?

yes. most of the policies at albert & eddie will offer cover for medical conditions, regardless of your age. and if, for whatever reason, they are unable to provide you with cover, you will be signposted to another specialist medical travel insurer who can.

it’s really easy to declare a medical condition during the quote process, just answer a couple of questions and we’ll match you with one of our brands that will cover your needs (or at least point you in the direction of someone else who can, if none of the albert & eddie brands are able to). you can do this either online or with an adviser over the phone.

remember, an existing condition could be anything from something you take medication for to something you see your GP or a consultant for. it’s important to let us know about any conditions you have, as failure to do so could mean you’re not fully covered later down the line.

do albert & eddie policies include Covid-19 protection?

most of the policies on albert & eddie’s travel insurance panel offer protection against Covid-19 in a standard form. for example, cancellation cover due to isolating or being hospitalised as a result of a Covid-19 test.

there’s also the option across all travel insurance brands on albert & eddie to enhance your protection with a Covid-19 policy extension.
