Why get travel insurance if you’re a senior citizen?

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 one 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.

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 should the unforeseen happen.

Travel insurance with pre-existing medical conditions

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 Basic policies (which include cover for trip cancellation and curtailment as well as many pre-existing medical conditions) will cost you from just £7.99 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, 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.

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.

Trouble free travel

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 through 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 you 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.
