What is family travel insurance?

Direct Travel Insurance are specialists when it comes to family travel insurance. Typically, there is little difference between a standard Single Trip policy and one for an entire family, however our policies work slightly differently. When you enter the details of all the travellers in your family, you'll receive a discount for some of the insurance policies we offer.

Who should I include on my family travel policy?

Its best to include everyone in the family who you want covered by the policy, a family policy can have both multiple adults and children meaning no matter the age of your children, they can be included.

We often apply discounts to children so they are included free of charge or apply discounts across the whole premium based on the number of travellers so its worth considering a family travel insurance policy if you plan on travelling as a family.

Can my family members travel independently on an annual policy?

In most cases yes, each adult can travel on their own during the terms of the annual policy and children can as long as they are accompanied by a responsible adult at all times For more information on how travellers work independently click here.
