Family travel insurance - including over 65s
Do you want family travel insurance or are over 65? As
Brokers we offer a range of travel insurance suitable for the family.
(including single parent families). Most of our family travel insurance
policies allow children to go free. (For the purposes of rating as a
family, children are normally defined as being under 18 or in full time
education under 23 (and living with parents). We offer both single and
annual policies so for a free annual family travel insurance quote

If you want family travel insurance for a
single trip then there aren't too many problems - just select the
countries you intend to visit, the period and the ages of the children in
the family to obtain a cheap quote. For an annual policy, however, you
should check whether the children in your family will want to travel on
their own (called independent travel). Many policies will not allow
independent travel - if you need this cover and are unsure if the policy
quoted provides it, please call us on 01207 509446.
If you want family travel insurance then
you should watch the excess on the policy - the excess is often applied
per person per section per event - so if several family members are
affected then the excess will apply several times. Although we cannot give
advice, we suggest you look at the BIBA travel insurance policy when you
obtain your quote as the excess is low (£40.00) and the maximum excess
per event is only £80.00 - some internet policies have a £100 excess
that could be applied four or five times after a single event - now you
know why they are so cheap!
The family travel insurance, you select,
should be chosen on the activities that you and your children might
participate in on the holiday. Obviously younger children are less likely
to participate in scuba diving or, for winter sports, ski jumping etc,
however many teenagers will want to partake in more active sports and
pursuits. Naturally we provide full details of policy cover before you buy
but, if you are in any doubt, please contact us.
Pre existing Conditions
We always recommend you choose a family
travel insurance policy that will cover pre existing conditions of all
family members. We occasionally get requests for one member of a family to
be covered for pre existing conditions whilst the other family members buy
a much cheaper policy. The problem with this is that the cheap policy may
not pay out for additional costs should the member of the family with the
pre existing condition have to return home for instance.
If there are medical conditions we provide
screening helplines to ensure that you know if cover can be provided.
remember that for travel insurance quotation purposes a
family is defined as "two parents and all their children under 18
living with them." However we do have policies that will cover
children under 23 living with you as long as they are in full time
education. Please call us if you fit into the wider definition. We are
based in North east England and have offices at Consett and Bishop Auckland.
