Why do I need over 70s travel insurance?

Having over 70s travel insurance can give you the confidence to treat yourself to that holiday, knowing that if something goes wrong, you’re well protected.

Our tailored travel insurance means that your medical needs can be covered, so you can enjoy your next retirement adventure with no worries. 

Problems can crop up on holiday when we least expect it, and that’s where we come in.

Know before you go

Before you travel, always check:

  • The Foreign Office (FCDO) say it’s safe to travel to your destination.
  • Your destination’s government advice, safety guidelines and entry requirements.

Important: FCDO travel advice and travel rules issued by the government are two separate pieces of advice.

Staysure Travel Insurance

"I was unexpectedly diagnosed with an illness that was thankfully cured by surgery. I travel a lot and was unsure how this would affect travel insurance. I phoned Staysure and was given clear and helpful information, asked quite detailed health questions and was finally given a very competitive quote for an annual policy with the option to pay monthly. Very efficient service, great company to deal with."

"Excellent service on phone when buying travel insurance. We have used Staysure before and had to make a claim from Singapore in an emergency situation. It was handled well, and all financial payments were dealt with efficiently and speedily. Would highly recommend!"
