We Review Staysure - Travel Insurance for the Over 50s
Staysure Insurance provide a number of policies including cover for single trips, annual and winter sports for those who are over 50 and for customers with pre-existing medical conditionsVisit Staysure Insurance
What we like:
- Good cover for those with a pre existing medical condition
- Have a clear list of around 220 conditions that are covered without additional screening
- Cover can be extended to cover Cruises, Golf Insurance and Winter Sports cover.
- No upper age limits
What we are not so keen on:
- Children cannot be insured to travel separately

Ski and snowboarding cover is only offered for those under 70 years of age. Activities covered include the following:
