What is family travel insurance?

When it comes to holidaying with your family, there are loads of things to think about: getting to the airport, packing enough sun cream, keeping the kids entertained and exchanging your currency are just a few. Whilst these jobs can be a headache, finding travel insurance for you and your family needn't be.

  • You could even stay covered on school trips and kid-free breaks
  • Most policies offer a 24 hour emergency helpline, providing support to help you deal with most emergencies
  • If you and your family are regular travellers and make several trips each year, it might pay to look at an annual policy. For shorter one off trips, single trip cover may be the most cost effective.

Here is our guide to any travel insurance questions that you might have.

    What does family travel insurance cover?

      • Medical treatment and repatriation costs could be covered if you or your family members get ill or injured whilst away
      • Cancellation cover might be useful as you could claim back your transportation and hotel costs if you are forced to cancel your plans because of illness or redundancy
      • Baggage cover could come in handy if your personal possessions are stolen, accidently lost or damaged whilst away

    Take a look at our guide on when to claim on your travel insurance if you're unsure.

Travel insurance tips:

  • Read the small print of your travel insurance carefully and report your items lost or stolen within 24 hours
  • If you or your family have any pre-existing medical conditions make sure you fill in all the information accurately before taking out a policy
  • If your child is 18 or over, then a family policy might not be the best option. Instead, consider taking out a standard travel insurance policy for children over 18, as most insurers consider them to be adults
