Travel insurance for over 70s

  • Published on

Nowadays more and more over 70 year olds are choosing to take advantage of their freedom and explore the world. However, travel insurers don’t always make it easy to plan your dream holiday. ERGO Medi-Care want to help you get out there offering travel insurance for over 70s so you can get planning for your perfect trip.

Travel Insurance For Over 70s  

The travel market for the over 70’s is one of the fastest growing in the travel industry. More and more 70 year old’s are making the most of their free time, taking advantage of the benefits of being an older traveller.  Reduced entry to museums, galleries and reduced ticket fares for trains and buses are just a few of the offers given to over 65-year-old travellers.

Despite the fact that it’s easier than ever to travel the world, if you are over the age of 70, you most probably will have encountered some problems when trying to find travel insurance for your holiday/trip or have been shocked by the excessively high premiums.

Fortunately, at ERGO we don’t believe that your age should automatically mean that you are no longer able to get out there and travel. An ERGO Leisure policy covers travellers up to the age of 74, whilst our Medi-Care policies cover those up to 84 and can even cover many medical conditions that might have meant you’d been refused cover elsewhere.


Our policies

It’s important that you find travel insurance that matches your needs, so having the option to choose the policy that suits your trip and your circumstances is essential. Some insurers reduce these options just because you’re over 70, you need to find a provider that takes care of you.

As with most of our insurance products, both the Leisure and Medi-Care policy give the option of single or annual policy, covering Europe or Worldwide (including USA). We also offer you three levels of cover to choose from:

  • Lite
  • Essential
  • Premier

This way, you get to select the product that best suits your needs and the trip that you’re planning to take. So depending on the cost of your trip you can choose a product that is personalised and tailored to you and how much you plan to take away with you.


Pre-existing Medical Conditions

Whilst not all over 70 year olds suffer from some form of pre-existing condition or ill health, it is more likely that travellers within this age range may suffer from a medical condition. It is difficult enough to find travel insurance if you are over 70 years of age, but if you also plan to travel with a pre-existing medical condition you might find that there are additional problems trying to get suitable insurance cover.

With ERGO Medi-Care, we cover over 200 conditions automatically at no additional cost. See our list of Automatically Approved medical conditions for more information. If your conditions aren’t automatically accepted, we offer a simple process to assess your needs, either online or by talking them through with one of our customer service team over the phone.


ERGO’s Service

ERGO has one of the most comprehensive assistance networks and our pre-approved medical facilities for all of our customers. With ERGO Medi-Care travellers over 70 with a medical condition are not only able to find insurance but are also able to rest assured that they will receive quality care should they need it.

We believe strongly in our Quality and Service ERGO Standard, and it’s our way of letting you know that you’re safe in the hands of an insurer that goes the extra mile to make sure you get the best possible treatment should something unfortunate happen while you’re away:

  • 24/7 medical assistance – easy access to assistance when you need it most
  • Local knowledge, local services – our expertise looking after you
  • English speaking customer services with multi lingual capabilities
  • Access to clinics and hospitals which have been inspected by our Euro-Center staff
  • Local cash free bill payment – whenever possible

If you’re over 70, looking for travel insurance, and are having trouble finding a suitable provider, call us on 01403 788510 and we’ll be happy to discuss your requirements.
