Looking for travel insurance with a medical condition?

If you have a pre-existing medical condition, it's important you let us know. To find out more information regarding medical conditions, visit our health conditions pages.

Top travelling tips for people over 80

  • Before embarking, visit your travel clinic for a pre-travel consultation. Ensure that when you leave for your trip you have all of the prescribed medical supplies.
  • Check that your passport is valid (particularly if you haven't been travelling for a while). It can also be a good idea to photocopy all of your travel documents, just in case you lose any.
  • Prepare a list of emergency contacts, and keep it with you at all times. Also remember to call our emergency helpline if you have any problems.
