Seniors Travel Insurance
At Premier Cover we believe that everyone should have the right to obtain travel insurance at a fair price and if you’re over 60 and are heading away, your age shouldn’t affect your ability to get covered.
At Premier Cover our team has over 35 years’ experience in providing travel insurance so you can be confident that we provide premier cover, premier value and premier service.
What Travel Insurance Type Should I Choose
If you are only going on the one trip this year then Single Trip Travel Insurance may be the ideal policy for you. You can cover trips up to 100 days in duration, to a single area of travel.
If you are planning to take multiple trips this year, and are aged 85 and under, then our Annual Multi-Trip cover may suit your needs. You’re covered to travel as many times as you like over the 12 months (maximum trip duration limits apply), and you may find it’s more cost effective than taking out several single policies.
If you are planning on taking a cruise holiday this year, then check out our special Cruise Plus add on, which provides cover for factors such as missed ports and cabin confinement.

Travel Advice for Over 60s
- If you are on a long-haul flight then make sure that you get up from your seat regularly and take a walk around to lessen your risk of developing deep-vein thrombosis. It’s always best to consult your GP before travelling if you have any specific health concerns.
- Make sure that you have taken enough medication to last the duration of your trip, plus a little extra just in case you hit any unexpected delays along the way.
- Also bear in mind that if you do need to take any medication with you, you should check what is and isn’t allowed by the country you are travelling to. That’s because in some countries there are restrictions on certain medicines/brands and if you pack something that isn’t allowed you could face severe penalties. To check this, visit the FCO website for the latest advice.
- Try to avoid drinking tap water where possible unless you are absolutely sure that it is safe to do so.
If you are travelling to Europe then make sure you take out your free European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). The EHIC is available to all UK residents and entitles you to some free medical treatment in the European Economic Area. But please be aware that the EHIC should not be treated as a replacement for a travel insurance policy. This is because while the EHIC may cover your medical concerns it doesn’t offer any cover for factors such as cancelled flights, stolen baggage or repatriation. Also as part of our policies, you will have no excess to pay when the EHIC is used.
