Insurance 75 with health issues

Hi everyone. Can you help please?

My mum is 75 with health issues and is having problems getting annual travel insurance.

She mainly goes on European holidays, e.g. Egypt but also likes cruises ; mainly European but when lucky, Caribbean.

I know there has been lots of previous threads on this but can't immediately locate them.

Any recommendations of insurance providers please?

Health issues are the usual blood pressure etc and nothing too scary.

Many thanks in advance.

I hate to tell you, but Egypt isn't in Europe...

We use Aviva for our insurance. We're in our 60s, and I have blood pressure/high cholesterol problems. Try googling holiday insurance with health problems and see what comes up.

Most insurers really hike up their premiums once a person reaches the age of 75 - applies to both travel and motor insurance. You could try her bank or building society but some banks are no longer doing travel insurance for anyone - not just the over 75’s! Assume you’re trying all the usual websites?
