Travel insurance for senior citizens
Have you been having trouble finding cost effective travel insurance for senior citizens? At Staysure, we believe there is no reason why you should go without just because of your age or your medical condition. We are experts in senior citizen travel insurance, up to age 85 and our policies include many pre-existing medical conditions as standard, meaning you will often not have to pay out more for a condition which is not covered.
A revolution has begun, thanks to the growing population of senior citizens or old age pensioners (OAP); in fact, by 2025 it is predicted that over on third of the UK's population will be aged over 55. We are living longer, having fewer children and staying active until much later in life – so much so that projections suggest that by 2025, the over-60s population will exceed the number of under 25s for the first time ever. We therefore recognise the importance of providing worthwhile and affordable travel insurance for the elderly.
Pre-existing medical conditions
If you are being treated for serious complaints, our simple, confidential screening process will consider your case to provide you with an instant quote including your medical complaints plus any other cover you wish to add to your policy.
This can be done via an online quote process or, if you would prefer to speak to someone regarding your particular insurance needs, then feel free to call our experts on 0844 692 8444 - they will gladly help you find a tailor-made policy to suit you.
Why get OAP holiday insurance?
It's always good to know that you have everything covered should things go wrong when you are on a trip away, whether in the UK, on a cruise or elsewhere. No one likes to think about things going wrong but OAP travel insurance will keep you covered, you should the unforeseen happen.
Travel insurance is not expensive. For the cost of a small meal out or even less, you will be fully covered, potentially saving you thousands in emergency expenses.
Our Basics Single Trip policies (which include cover for trip cancellation and curtailment as well as many pre-existing medical conditions) will cost you from just £6.49 for a week in the UK or the rest of Europe – a tiny investment considering the endless amounts of time, hassle and money you could save should the worst happen. According to sundaytimes.co.uk, the average cost of becoming seriously ill abroad is £2,040, while an uninsured hospital visit in the USA will set you back an average of £6,000.
Trouble free travels
If you choose to go without travel insurance, bear in mind that you may need to find a doctor, perhaps in a foreign language, or find a hospital and ambulance while in a blind panic. You may then go to the frustration of explaining your symptoms to a non-native English speaker and you'll probably also need to arrange and pay for extra hotel accommodation, possibly even a new flight home for you and your travelling companion(s), having missed your original return flight due to illness. The inconvenience and cost of all these events can be dealt with if you have the right policy in place.
Staysure's Comprehensive policies cover you for £10million of medical emergency and repatriation cover, up to £2,000 of personal luggage cover, £2 million in personal liability cover, as well as 24 hour assistance in English should you need it.
If you plan on travelling more than once in a year, an Annual Multi-Trip policy could well be the best option for you. It can be annoying and expensive to remember to apply for a new travel insurance policy each time they go away, so we can offer flexible cover for up to 183 days of travel per year. You will be insured for up to 50 days per trip, all under the one policy.
Should you be unsure of all the services and travel insurance products we can provide you, simply give our insurance experts a call on 0844 692 8444 and they will gladly help you find the best policy to suit you.
Why Choose Staysure?
Do you have pre-existing medical conditions?
No problem. Many conditions are already covered as standard in all our policies. However, you must disclose to us any pre-existing medical conditions you might have at the time of taking out your policy. If your conditions are not part of our list of accepted conditions, we will help you through a simple medical screening process and provide you with a quote for more specific cover to suit your condition.
For example, if you have high blood pressure or respiratory problems, you run a higher risk than usual of experiencing a related medical emergency, so declaring your medical condition is important to ensure your policy covers you properly for your travels.
At Staysure, we can tailor our travel insurance for the elderly to meet your needs, as well as your budget. If you have any questions regarding your travel insurance needs, please don't hesitate to contact our travel insurance experts on 0844 692 8444 who will be more than happy to help. Additionally, you can get an online quote in just minutes.
