About Staysure

Staysure offers competitive insurance products tailored for the over 50s. Specialising in travel insurance, Staysure can cover a wide range of pre-existing medical conditions including cancer and heart conditions.

Formed in 2004 by Ryan Howsam, today the company has expanded considerably to a variety of insurance products for both UK residents and expatriates. In addition to travel, home, motor, health and life insurance, Staysure also offer travel holidays and cruises through its ABTA-bonded travel agency.

Staysure operate on a day-to-day basis with the following core values in mind: be inspiring, be caring, be adaptable, and be brilliant.

The company now aims to become a one-stop-shop for all insurance, travel and over 50s lifestyle products, both in the UK and worldwide.

Julian Kearney, Chief Executive Officer, leads the business and takes time to get to know everyone and for the teams to get to know him too.
