Travel Insurance for Children

Have you been looking for great value children's travel insurance, but aren't sure how to go about buying for under 18s? It might be among a thousand other things on an ever-growing to-do list for your holiday.

We're all about making travel insurance as straightforward for you as possible. We want to help ensure the whole family can enjoy less hassle and more holiday, without compromising quality for cost.

Both of our Single Trip and Annual travel insurance policies offer flexible cover for your children at a great price. With the choice of three different cover levels, you can select the most suitable level of cover for your personal needs. It is important to note, if you want to buy travel insurance for children with Holiday Extras, they must travel with an adult and cannot travel independently under our cover.

Compare children's travel insurance cover levels

When you book children's travel insurance you will have a choice of three varying cover levels. Below is a breakdown of what you are exactly covered for. For a more in-depth overview of what each policy level offers, be sure to check out our policy documents page.

Can children travel alone?

You might wonder at what age children can legally travel alone and where this stands with insurance.

Children are not able to travel independently on any travel insurance policy with Holiday Extras. However, with both our single and annual multi-trip policies, we've made sure every children's travel insurance policy is equipped with suitable levels of medical cover, lost luggage, cancellation and repatriation cover.
