Voyager Plus Family Travel Insurance

For peace of mind on your family holiday

Family Travel Insurance

Going on a family holiday is the perfect opportunity to create everlasting memories with your family. Whether you’re taking your family on an adventurous trip, sightseeing around a city, or simple having a beach holiday, you’ll probably want to consider getting family travel insurance to protect your family.

Here at Voyager Plus, we understand the hassle of having to buy individual travel insurance for each family member. To help make that part of your family holiday stress-free, Voyager Plus Family Travel Insurance covers you and your children all under one convenient policy.

Why Choose Voyager Plus for Family Travel Insurance?

At Voyager Plus, travel insurance is done differently. We believe that the best family travel insurance isn't necessarily the one with the lowest price. Rather, the most important factor is the level of financial protection it provides for you and your family, giving you peace of mind should the unexpected happen during your holiday.

Voyager Plus has over 25 years of experience in providing family travel insurance to UK families. Our Family Travel Insurance can cover up to £10 million in Emergency Medical Cover if you or your family require medical treatment while abroad. Not only this, but our policy also includes the cost of Emergency Repatriation back to your home country, if medically needed.

Furthermore, no parent would want to see their child suddenly feel unwell, especially on a family holiday, and be unable to speak to a GP or pharmacist about it. That’s why as standard all Voyager Plus Family Travel Insurance include GP On Demand, a 24/7 service where you can speak to an NHS Trained Doctor while abroad for no extra cost.

What Are The Other Benefits of Getting a Family Travel Insurance?

For many people, providing financial protection against unforeseen events that aren’t covered by GHIC (The UK Global Health Insurance Card) is the main benefit of getting travel insurance for your family. Other benefits include cover for having to cancel or cut short your family trip or losing your baggage.

In addition, you can tailor Family Travel Insurance by adding on extras to include the cover you need*. For example, with our Action Activities Option, you can get extended cover to include adventurous activities you might be doing with your family e.g. canyoning or rafting (in a river that is grade 4 and over). Or you can protect your camera, tablet PC and your smartphone if it gets stolen or accidentally damaged with our Gadget Cover.

*NB: To benefit from additional cover, you’ll need to select the policy options you require in the quote process and pay any additional premiums.

What Travel Insurance Options are Available for Families?

Voyager Plus offers different travel insurance options for you to choose from to best suit your family’s needs:

  • Single Trip Family Travel Insurance: This policy type is designed for families looking to cover one family trip or holiday abroad
  • Annual Multi-Trip Family Travel Insurance: This policy type is designed for families planning to go on more than one family trip within 12 months. For example, a holiday in Europe during the winter break, then to the USA for the summer holidays, and covers any number of trips made during the specified 12 months

What’s more, with family annual travel insurance, family members on the policy can travel independently of the main family group. However, children who are under the age of 18 would need to be accompanied by one adult.
