Exploring the world is a joyful experience no matter your age, your golden years are made for doing what you love, and if travelling the world is what you want to do then we’re here to support that.

Travel insurance for over 70s is designed to give you the holiday cover you need so you can focus on seeing the world and feel confident in your travel insurance so you can discover new cities and visit your favourite places comfortably.

Can over 70s get travel insurance?


Of course you can! However, different providers will have different age limits for their cover.

At Asda Travel Insurance, our policies have no upper age limit. So whether you're buying a single trip policy or an annual multi-trip policy, we'll be able to cover you no matter your age.

We will take any pre-existing medical conditions into consideration when you take out your policy as well. That means if you do have any conditions, we’ll need you to declare them and complete a quick medical screening. There may be an extra fee to cover your condition.

Don't forget to keep us up to date if you have any changes to your health while being covered by your policy to make sure you remain fully covered (an additional charge may be needed to cover the new condition).

How long can I travel for if I’m over 70?


As long as you like! Our single trip policies can cover a holiday of up to 365 days, just let us know your travel dates and we'll give you a quote. With an annual multi-trip policy you can travel as many times as you like during the year, as long as no individual trip is over 35 days on a Value policy, 45 days on a Premium policy or 55 days if you've chosen a Superior policy.

 

At what age does travel insurance go up?


Some insurers might turn you down if you’re over 65, even if you’re happy and healthy. Not us; our policies have no upper age limit. You might find that your premiums start to increase around 65, but we'll be able to offer you a policy no matter your age.

 

What medical conditions do you have to declare for travel insurance?


When taking out a travel insurance policy, you will need to declare all medical conditions you have in order for them to be covered by the policy. If there’s anything that you’re currently being treated for or are taking medication for, then you’ll need to let your provider know. You'll also need to inform them if you have any changes to your health after taking out the policy while still being covered.

Any pre-existing medical conditions you don’t declare won’t be covered by your insurance, so if anything were to happen abroad because of that condition then you wouldn’t be able to claim for any relevant costs.

Can I get travel insurance for a cruise?


Yes - we offer travel insurance for cruise holidays as an optional extra for all our policies which can cover you for:

  • Missed port departure
  • Cabin confinement
  • Itinerary change
  • Unused excursions
  • Cruise interruption

These can all be especially useful when going on a cruise, as it can cover parts of your cruise you miss as a result of an accident or illness, or even missing your initial departure due to issues reaching the port.
