Travelling with an adult

Alleviate the stress of booking a family holiday when you opt for Holiday Extras' travel insurance for children. If you opt for single parent travel insurance or a family travel insurance policy your children up to the age of 18 years will be insured for absolutely free with each paying adult, and you can be assured that they will benefit from the same levels of cover as the paying adult they're travelling with. So when you are getting a quote pick great value holiday insurance for yourself and remember to add the smaller travellers to your policy free of charge.

Children travelling alone

Allowing your children under 18 years to travel on their own can leave you feeling understandably nervous but from just £3.49* per week at Holiday Extras, we've made sure every child only travel insurance policy is equipped with high levels of medical cover, lost luggage, cancellation and repatriation cover.

We can take part of the worry away when your child is travelling alone by ensuring they have cover and giving you peace of mind at a great price with our child only travel insurance available with basic, standard or premium levels of cover depending on their needs. Just be sure that all insured children aged 17 and under are accompanied to their departure point by a responsible adult.

There's also a 24-hour emergency UK based helpline on hand when you need it most for advice and support.

Additional Cover

If you feel that your child's trip requires a particular form of cover, there are a number of additional cover options available to add to their policy, from our specialised winter sports add-on, to additional gadget cover insurance.

Travelling with a pre-existing medical condition?

  • Free children's travel insurance for up to 3 years with a paying adult
  • Up to 18's travel insurance is half price with each paying adult
  • Tailored policies for customers with pre-existing medical conditions
  • Up to £10 million in medical cover and up to £5000 in cancellation cover

We don't want to make travelling with a medical condition any more stressful for yourself or for your children. Instead, we can provide extra cover for children that need it most. Please visit our holiday insurance for children with medical conditions page if you would like to find out more, or contact a member of our team today.

If you are an adult travelling with a medical condition and purchase a travel insurance policy with Holiday Extras, for persons with a pre-existing medical condition, then your child's travel insurance will be absolutely free up to the age of 3 yrs and half price up to the age of 18 years if they are added on to the same policy.

Policy Excess

The policy excess is the amount deducted from your total settlement claim. The excess on Holiday Extras policies range from around £75-£125, with many sections of our cover requiring no excess at all. If you would prefer to avoid paying the excess for all of the sections of cover, we suggest adding the excess waiver to your policy.
