Shopping around for travel insurance for pensioners with pre-existing medical conditions was a real eye-opener for a retired couple from Cheshire. They had already had to restrict their travel to Europe but even then average costs for travel insurance for an annual policy came in at £500.

Both are currently in good health and have been declared as fit to travel by their doctor but having pre-existing medical conditions caused a tremendous price hike in their premium, or indeed they were refused cover on specific health issues. Searching on the internet for alternative insurers resulted in some of the over 60s organisations you might expect but they were really costly too.

Then a friend spotted World First Travel Insurance, noting our policies for over 65's and cover for pre-existing medical conditions. Together, they researched us on the internet as they hadn't heard of us before; it looked very promising so they followed up with a call to one of our specialist advisers.

That call really paid off as World First offered an annual European policy with cover for the couple's pre-existing medical conditions for £315. They are absolutely delighted as they both really enjoy travelling and it will allow them to take the two annual holidays a year they are used to. Their first trip in 2012 is to Gran Canaria and they are very much looking forward to a luxurious holiday at a 5-star hotel.
