Will being a senior affect the cost of my holiday insurance?
The price of a travel insurance policy will vary depending on a number of different factors. For example, the cost of a travel insurance policy will be influenced by your age, your overall health, the destination you plan on travelling to, how long you plan on travelling for, and any activities you plan on taking part in during your trip(s). These factors are all taken into account when presenting suitable travel insurance policies and prices.
Cruise holiday travel insurance for seniors
Cruise holidays are a popular holiday choice among many senior travellers, with 19% of cruisers aged between 60-69, 17% aged between 50-59 and 14% aged over 70. ⁷ That’s why we have created a specialist cruise policy extension, that can be added on to any single or annual multi trip Get Going policy, offering extra protection against the risks that can happen during a cruise break.
Our cruise travel insurance policy extension has been specifically designed to offer additional levels of cover that you wouldn’t necessarily need if you were going on a beach holiday. For example, protection should you be confined to you cabin, cover if your trip itinerary has to change, as well as protection if you miss your cruise departure or connection. You can find out more about our cruise travel insurance protection here.
The cruise extension is not our only extension available, we also offer a Covid-19 extension, large scale events extension, excess waiver and multiple activity pack add-ons which can be added to most policies, depending on your trip.
