As an older traveller with medical problems, it was good to get a straightforward and competitive quote via your website

Affordable travel insurance for the over 80s

Finding good travel insurance can be difficult as you get older. It can also be very expensive. At World First we offer a range of affordable policies for travellers up to the age of 100. We insure thousands of medical conditions and will give you all the cover you need for a happy holiday. That includes cancellation protection as well as cover for travel delays, baggage loss and up to £10 million worth of medical costs with our Superior policy. We'll even cover the cost of replacing lost medication. You'll also get access to 24/7 emergency assistance, anywhere in the world. So where will it be?

If you want to find out more, give us a call on 0345 90 80 161.


"A ray of sunshine for two octogenarians"

"I am so glad we discovered World First. We are almost 87 and 85 but very fit (with a pill or two) but it has not been easy to get insurance recently. Your website was easy to navigate and your questions relating to medication were straightforward. You realised that we take the pills the doctor gives us not because we are ill but to keep us healthy!"

Quotes obtained from a leading price comparison website on 21/10/2013 and are based on a 89 year old male and an 80 year old female purchasing a Single Trip policy to cover a 10 day Cruise to see the Northern Lights. The male traveller declared Asthma, Reflux and a mini-stroke.

As you can see, the savings illustrated in the table are extremely significant. We're not talking about saving a few pennies here. Insuring with World First can be over £1,000 cheaper than going elsewhere. That could mean the difference between going on holiday and not going at all. We also have favourable cancellation cover and very low policy excesses. So if you do need to make a claim, you'll never be left out of pocket. It's proof that we mean business when we say we believe in fairer travel insurance.
