Medical assistance when you're away

We can help you get medical assistance if you fall ill by directing you to a pre-approved practice, while your policy will help protect you financially from the costs involved. Where needed, we can even arrange for you to come home to be able to receive more treatment in the UK, with coverage for the cost of cutting short your trip.

Cover for your friends and family

Our single trip travel insurance is tailored for the over 50s but you can add your family and friends who are under 50 to your policy, too.

Destinations and regions

Our single trip policies cover all destinations however, we are unable to provide cover if you travel to an area where the Foreign and Commonwealth Office have advised against travelling to.

How does it compare to annual multi-trip cover?

Annual multi-trip travel insurance is suitable for those who plan to travel more than once a year. If you are only travelling once in a 12 month period, single trip travel insurance may be more suitable for you.
