Travel Insurance for Grandparents

Holidays are always best spent with family; for this reason our holiday insurance gives senior citizens the reassurance they need when travelling. We cover grandparents up to 74 years old on Single Trip and Annual Multi Trip quotes. If you are travelling with your grandchildren, they can also receive cover on your policy as long as you, or another responsible adult with our children's travel insurance; always accompany those under 18 on Annual policies.

At Essential Travel we offer four destinations areas and four levels of travel insurance policies dependent on the level of cover needed. If you are over 74 years old, please see our Over 74s travel insurance page for more information.

Customise your policy

You have the choice of 4 cover levels and 4 areas of cover so that you only pay for the cover you need.

All our travel insurance policies include:

  • Medical Expenses cover: from £2.5 million to £10 million
  • Hospital Benefit cover: from £300 to £1,200 per day
  • Personal Accident cover: from £7,500 to £30,000*

*Personal Accident cover is limited for those aged over 65.

Medical Conditions

Over 70 medical conditions are covered as standard on all of our policies.

We also provide extra medical cover for Pre-Existing Medical Conditions that you can easily add to your policy. If you want to add extra medical cover for conditions which don't come as standard, simply complete the quick and easy online medical screening process after getting your initial quote. Answer the simple questions on your condition, where we will then quote you a price for the added cover.

Experts' Top Tip - If you are below the age of 65 and enjoy being active, our policies offer you coverage while participating in a varied list of holiday activities such as Winter Sports.

Add Extra Cover

You can customise your policy further with pre-existing medical condition cover, sports and a number of other specialist add-ons.

Do You Need to Declare a Medical Condition?

If you have a pre-existing medical condition it’s vital that you declare it or you could invalidate your entire policy. Insurers don’t like to think that you’ve hidden things from them and you may be surprised to find out that many common medical conditions such as allergies can be added without any additional cost. What’s more, you even have the option to declare a condition but then exclude it from your policy. What this means is that you’ve told your insurer about your condition but decided not to cover it, so you will be covered medically for anything unrelated to that condition.

Do You Need Extra Sports or Specialist Cover?

A decent policy will include cover for many sporty or adventure activities as standard. However the more adventurous or dangerous the activity, like winter sports, the more likely it is that you will need to purchase additional sports insurance. You can customise your policy further a number of other specialist add-ons.
