Travelling with children undoubtedly has its challenges, but can also be very rewarding.

Any overseas travel is expensive, let alone a big family holiday, so don’t underestimate the importance of having good quality travel insurance. Make sure you're covered before embarking on any major trip to protect your family and give you peace of mind. As a rule of thumb, the better prepared you are, the safer and more enjoyable your travel will be.

If you plan to rely on the travel insurance offered by your credit card, you should request confirmation in writing before you leave so you understand the extent of your cover. Check for exclusions and whether your policy includes travel insurance for dependents.

If your children are travelling alone, check the relevant visa requirements before their departure. Each country has different conditions of entry and exit for unaccompanied children. Similarly, you may need to fill out a permission form for the airline on which they travel. 

With Travel Insurance Direct your kids get to go free - dependent children or grandchildren under the age of 21 at the time of purchase (dependent means they aren't working) are included on your Travel Insurance policy absolutely free.
