We’ve recently made some changes to our policies that we think are great news for our many customers who are older travellers, and indeed any traveller over the age of 60 who is looking for great-value comprehensive travel insurance….
We already have lots to offer the more senior traveller, take a look in more detail here, but we’ve tweaked the policies to make them even more flexible and accommodating. This is great news for older travellers searching the travel insurance market for a company whose policies offer a good level of cover at a realistic price, provided by a great team offering unrivalled customer service and advice.
Changes to our Annual Multi Trip policies
Annual multi-trip policies are a popular and cost-effective choice for people who have a few trips booked within a year’s duration. Our policies offer cover for an unlimited number of trips in a year. There used to be a limit of up to 31 days per trip under our Annual Multi Trip policy, which was fine for the majority of travellers, but there were a few who were going for a longer duration, who then had to buy a single-trip policy as well as an Annual Multi-trip policy. In light of this, we have now introduced an option to extend the policy for an unlimited number of trips of up to 45 days. Customers can select this option when buying this policy on our website or over the phone, and it is very quick and simple to apply.
Another option that we’ve introduced in relation to our Annual Multi Trip policies, is an additional Cruise Benefit. This can be chosen if you need cover for up to 2 cruises within the year, as long as each costs under £3, 000. Again, this is easy to apply whether you choose to buy online or over the phone.
These changes allow you to tailor our popular Annual Multi Trip policy to fit your unique needs, and will hopefully make covering the year’s travels even easier and less costly.
We can now cover older travellers – and for longer
We have two policies that are suitable for older travellers: the Economy 500 policy and the First Class policy. We are now able to offer these to older travellers than we could before – up to the wise senior age of 99 in fact, and we are also able to offer cover for travellers for longer periods. The changes are summarised below:
|Age Group||Old maximum duration of cover||New maximum duration of cover|
|75 – 79||31 days||93 days (31 days for WW Inc. USA, Canada and the Caribbean) First Class Policy only for over 62 days of cover|
|80 – 85||24 days||31 days (24 days for WW Inc.USA, Canada and the Caribbean) First Class policy only for over 24 days of cover|
|86 – 99||No cover||24 days (10 days for WW Inc.USA, Canada and the Caribbean) Cover under the First Class policy only|
The cover benefits of the policies remain as comprehensive as they were before these changes, offering great value cover for trip cancellation, emergency medical expenses and repatriation, and cover for lost or stolen valuables, amongst other essential benefits. Take a look at the benefits of each policy in more detail here.
We are also able to offer cover for most pre-existing medical conditions, if this applies to you. Click here for more details.
We are very pleased to have so many repeat customers, who return year-on-year for their travel insurance, because they are delighted with our great value and great-cover travel insurance for travellers of all ages.
