Visiting friends and family abroad

Whether you're visiting friends living abroad, or travelling back home for a family reunion, you'll want to make sure your trip is protected by a comprehensive travel insurance policy with coverage for medical emergencies, cancellations and lost baggage.

Why get travel insurance for visiting relatives abroad?

If you're planning a trip to visit relatives abroad, it can often feel like you're returning to a second home - and this feeling of comfort can sometimes mean we're inclined to take a more relaxed approach to travel preparations.

Like with any holiday, when visiting family and friends abroad, there's still the possibility of facing cancellations, lost baggage and medical emergencies. In these instances, having a reliable travel insurance policy in place can save a lot of potential heartache and stress.

What travel insurance do I need for visiting family and friends abroad?

To choose an appropriate travel insurance policy, you'll need to take into account a few basic considerations, like where you'll be travelling to, whether you'll be travelling alone or in a group, how long you'll be away for and whether you have any pre-existing medical conditions. Answering all these questions accurately will ensure that you're sufficiently covered when taking a trip to visit the family.

Annual multi-trip policy

If you're planning several trips throughout the year, then it may be a good idea to take out an annual multi-trip policy. This will have you covered for an unlimited number of trips in a 365 day period, so long as each trip includes a minimum of 1 overnight stay, and doesn't exceed the maximum trip duration**.

If you're a family of frequent travellers then you've definitely got the right idea! Whether you're flying solo or with the whole gang, if you embark on more than two trips a year then a family annual trip policy could potentially save you some serious money in the long term. You'll receive cover for an unlimited number of trips given that each trip does not exceed the said trip duration.

The perks of family travel insurance

  • Adults named on the same policy can travel independently (ensuring that no under 18's travel unaccompanied).
  • One policy for the whole family means one payment - and only one policy to look after!
  • 24/7 Emergency assistance.†
