What is group travel insurance?

Whether you're going on a family trip, backpacking with some mates or off on a 18-30 clubbing holiday, a travel insurance policy could protect your group against unexpected costs such as delayed flights, cancellations and medical treatment.

    • Cover for group travel insurance is usually the same as you would expect from a single trip policy, it just makes things a little easier to have all your travel policies in one place. Simply fill in the personal details of your group by ticking the individuals box when making a quote
    • Going on a family holiday? Then consider taking out a family policy, but note that family policies are limited to 2 adults and 8 children under the age of 18
    • Certain sports and activities might not be covered under a standard policy, so check before you book any adventurous excursions
    • Water sports such as scuba diving and jet skiing aren't usually covered by the standard policy so it might be worth getting an extra cover for those
    • Some policies could offer conservation/charity work cover, which could come in handy if you're volunteering in Australia or Africa

    Did you know? Spain and Portugal are the cheapest holiday spots.

      What could travel insurance cover?

        • Emergency medical treatment could be expensive abroad, so your medical and transportation costs back to the UK could be covered if you or your group are ill or injured whilst away
        • Cancellations and curtailment cover means that you could claim back the cost of your hotel and transport if you are forced cancel or cut your trip short in an emergency
        • Your group's valuables and passports could be protected against loss or damage
        • Personal accident, liability and legal cover could also come in handy if you and your group come into any trouble whilst abroad

Travel tips

  • Make sure you have your groups' personal details at hand when filling in the travel insurance quote such as their names, dates of birth and medical details. Don't forget to declare any pre-existing medical conditions that you or any of your group might have.
  • Policies regarding group travel vary from insurer to insurer, so make sure you read the small print, check the policy excess and exclusions before buying (find out more here).
  • There’s a time limit to making a claim, so if you are hospitalised, make sure you or someone on your behalf contacts your insurer within 24 hours. It’s important to note that insurers might refuse paying out any drug or alcohol related incidents.
  • Make sure you obtain appropriate and relevant proof of loss or theft of your personal belongings, including police report, receipts, and proof of purchase and value of the items.
  • The Foreign Office advises that you research the areas that you're travelling to and get to know the local laws and regulations before going away.
