We all want to ensure that we get the best deal on our holidays, so we invest lots of time checking and searching our options before booking. However, many of us fail to apply the same zeal to sorting out holiday insurance for our trips. To ensure that your loved ones have the right protection, it can help to look at a range of family travel insurance policies.

Besides peace of mind, travel insurance offers support when you need it most.

Emergency medical care abroad can be incredibly expensive; without travel insurance, you could easily pay thousands for something you’d usually consider a standard procedure. When you come to choose a policy, adequate medical cover should be high up on your checklist.

However, family travel insurance is not just about medical costs. As a general rule, a comprehensive policy should offer the following:

  • Cancellation cover in case you are unable to go away on your trip 
  • Adequate cover for your holiday baggage and travel money 
  • Cover for the loss of documentation, such as passports, which can be costly when things go wrong 
  • Public liability in case you are involved in any accidents 
  • Cover for legal expenses 
  • Personal assistance services available 24/7 by phone for when things go wrong 
  • Cover for missed departure from the UK 
  • Travel delay cover


For the ultimate in cheap family travel insurance protection, also look out for catastrophe cover for things like ash clouds and earthquakes. And if you book DIY trips as opposed to full packaged holidays then look for a policy with end supplier failure for when companies go out of business. This will prevent you from being left high and dry.
