Over 65s Travel Insurance

Whoever said that travelling is only for the young was totally out of touch with the modern world. Today’s so-called ‘senior citizens’ are fitter and stronger than their predecessors, and 70 is definitely the new 40! However, as we get older, many of us have problems obtaining reasonably priced travel insurance.

At Holidaysafe we believe that more mature travellers shouldn’t be discriminated against simply because of their age, which is why we offer a range of policies suitable for Over 65s starting from as little as £8.22¹
