Travel insurance that protects your children is a holiday essential, whether you’re travelling as a family or they are going away alone.
Whether your children under 18 are covered by your existing family or annual travel insurance policy will depend on the policy you have and the type of trip they are going on.
If you are going away with your children and you have a family travel insurance policy, this should cover your family group for your holiday. If, however, your child is going away without you on a school trip or with friends, double check whether your current policy will cover them as the majority don’t.
If your current travel insurance doesn’t include cover for under-18s travelling alone, you’ll have to look for a separate policy.
What's classed as a pre-existing condition? Can you extend your cover? If you're perplexed by your policy, our handy guide to all things travel insurance means you'll never get lost in the legalese again.Read moreabout Your travel insurance questions answered
