The best single trip pensioners' European travel insurance policy

A look at three of the best pensioners' travel insurance policies for single trips to Europe, each policy showing clear advantages and disadvantages according to the particular needs of the customer.

Cosmos Holidays

This is the cheapest pensioners' travel insurance deal in our selection, costing from just £11.24 for one week in Europe. The save is not so great compared to the other deals discussed here, however, and it's worth taking a good look at the policy details: with this plan, you are only covered up to £2,000,000 for medical expenses, which is quite poor, but the baggage and cancellation coverage is quite good, protecting you up to £1,000 for baggage and £1,500 for cancellation. Check it out at cosmos.co.uk.


Infinity's Alpha 100 Single Trip European pensioners' travel insurance policy is only fractionally more expensive than the Cosmos Holidays deal discussed above, but you get a much greater medical expenses coverage at up to £10,000,000, and comparable cancellation protection at £1,000. The baggage protection drops behind at only £500, but with costs starting at just £13.10, this deal is certainly worth considering. Visit infinityinsurance.co.uk for more details.

Insure For Travel

With costs starting from just £15.48 for a week's travel in Europe, the Insure For Travel deal is the option of choice for those of you who feel you need greater protection against either cancellation or baggage damage. The protection against damage to personal belongings covers up to £2,000, while the protection against cancellation reaches £3,000. Although the medical expenses in this policy only amount to £5,000,000, this is still a good deal. Purchase it at insurefortravel.co.uk.
