Buying travel insurance when you’re over 80 can be slightly trickier as many insurers set an upper age limit on policies.

But it’s important to ensure you have the correct policy for you so you can travel with peace of mind.

When you’re over 80, you’re more likely to make a medical claim when travelling, so there are special policies available taking this higher risk into account – and, consequently, offering more comprehensive medical cover.

Insurers set age limits on standard policies, anywhere from 65 to 79, which can be different depending on whether you’re buying single- or multi-trip cover, so check the T&Cs of any policy you’re considering buying.

Just as with standard travel insurance, there are different types of travel insurance for over 80s available, whether you’re looking for annual cover or a policy for a single trip.
