Travel Insurance for Families – Choose Cover that Best Suits Your Family
Travelling with your family can be lots of fun and having the right cover can mean you won’t have to worry about those little, unexpected things while you’re on holiday. But what does family travel insurance really mean? And what are you covered for?
Children Go Free!
At InsureandGo, your children (or grandchildren/dependents) go free! This means your kids can be covered under your family insurance policy for no extra cost. Simply select an adult policy (for single, couple or family travel insurance cover) and you can include any number of children/dependents in your cover for free.
Children and dependents will receive most of the same benefits as listed in your policy
Children and dependents must be under 18 years of age at the time of purchase
You’ll most likely want to do lots of fun things with your family while you’re away. If you’re planning on more than basic sightseeing, it’s important to make sure you are covered for all your planned activities and sports. You will usually find a list of included/excluded activities and sports in your Product Disclosure Statement
Popular and fun activities can include:
Skiing and snow sports
Horse riding, elephant riding or camel riding
Indoor rock climbing
Safaris and wildlife tours
Kayaking or canoeing
Need to check which activities or sports you are covered for? Find the full list of covered activities by checking the relevant PDS.
In some cases, you may not be automatically covered for your chosen activities, so you may need to upgrade your cover. If you are hiring equipment (like skiing equipment) you may also need additional cover for equipment damage and loss.
Keep in mind that if you or your family members neglect to follow regulations regarding a certain activity, you will be exempt from your insurance cover
If you are unsure about what activities or gear are included in your policy, speak to our travel insurance team about your family activities and sports prior to choosing your cover
Other Common Areas of Cover
Depending on your policy, you’ll also be covered under your family travel insurance package for common items, such as:
Medical expenses and hospital expenses
Trip delays or cancellations
Emergency trips home
Travel and baggage delays
