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.

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.

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
