Finding the right Over 65's travel insurance needn't be an effort

Post Office Travel Insurance has no upper age limit, if you decide to travel only once a year we can offer Single trip cover, or for those of your traveling more, we can provide Annual cover.>

Make sure you're covered

If an accident happens to you while you're away, you could end up liable to pay a small fortune in hospital bills. Post Office® Travel Insurance can help cover you.  

EHIC won't protect you as much as we can

If you're in Europe, a valid European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) means you might receive state-provided medical healthcare for less. But our travel insurance could cover more of the cost for you.

Don't forget, we can also help protect you against delays or cancellations, lost luggage & documents and personal liability. What's more, if you are going abroad to snowboard or ski there are even more reasons you need travel insurance.

Finding the right over 65 cover is easy with us

If you fancy a cruise, we can provide cover with trip limits up to 31 days if you aged 76 and over. For anyone aged 71-75 its 90 days, and 70 and below its up to 365 days. If you fancy a spot of golf, there are no age restrictions and for the more adventurous, we offer winter sports cover up to 70 years >.

What if you have a medical condition?

You may have a pre-existing medical condition like asthma, a heart problem or cancer. But we don't think that's a reason why you shouldn't be able to enjoy yourself on holiday. So we offer medical travel insurance too.

Sort out the insurance when you sort out your holiday

It's a good idea to buy your travel insurance as soon as your holiday is booked. It will cover you for cancellation or anything that might prevent you from travelling, like unexpected illness, injury or even bereavement before you make your trip.

If your holiday is cancelled, we can help

 And our Annual Multi-Trip cover is in place for a whole year, so you can be reassured knowing your holiday is protected from the policy start date you choose. For  cancellation cover to begin immediately for any trips you’ve already booked, make sure you choose the date you buy the insurance as the start date for the policy.
