We can also provide travel insurance for people while they are awaiting a range of surgeries, including common procedures such as knee and hip replacements or cataract surgery provided you are not travelling against the advice of a doctor*. The full list of surgeries is available here.

Travel tips for over 75s

  • Before you book, it’s a good idea to plan your trip carefully. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office provides excellent country-specific information, with important safety and security updates for your destination.
  • If you need vaccinations, make sure you arrange for these at least eight weeks before you are due to depart. You can find detailed vaccination information at the NHS, along with general travel advice for the elderly.
  • If you take any medication, you need to make sure you’ve got enough to last your entire trip, plus possible delays. Talk with your GP about how to take your medication if you’re travelling through different time zones. You should also get a written note from your GP detailing the prescribed drugs you’re taking.
  • If you’re flying, request seats with the most legroom and you’ll also be able to request help getting on and off the plane, and stowing your luggage. Let staff know of any dietary requirements you may have in advance.
  • Plan a detailed itinerary. Leave a copy of this, along with copies of your important documents, with someone at home. If you need to make extra arrangements for any planned trips, such as the provision of a wheelchair, do this before you depart.
  • Make sure you have comprehensive travel insurance for peace of mind to cover all eventualities. This will cover you if you should fall ill while you’re away, as well as provide baggage cover, repatriation, personal liability and legal protection.
  • Pack light. If you’re going on a short trip, try to avoid packing and carrying a heavy bag and ask the stewards to help you get hand luggage into the overhead lockers. Make sure you’ve got everything you need for the flight to hand. If you’re checking in luggage make sure your carry-on bag has everything you need for your journey.
