Single Parent Travel Insurance

Finding single parent travel insurance for a single parent family can sometimes feel a little tricky. Many family travel insurance policies only apply if there are two paying adults, and this can be impractical if you want to take your children on holiday as a single parent. At Holiday Extras we provide cover for single parents so you can get great, affordable straightforward cover.

Do I need travel insurance for my children?

When it comes to the question of if you need travel insurance for your children, ask yourself, do i need travel insurance for myself? After all, your children are open to many of the same risks that can come with a trip, so should be treated with the same consideration as your own insurance. With Holiday Extras, getting the whole family insured to your needs is straightfoward. This is a great and convenient way of making sure they're covered for lost luggage, medical, cancellation and repatriation cover.

If you were thinking about sending your children on a trip alone, take a look at our children's travel insurance page for more information. If you are a single parent looking for travel insurance for your child then we have great deals for child-only policies. Please see below for more policy benefits:

What travel insurance to get for a single parent family?

We understand that sometimes it can all seem a bit convoluted and stressful, which is why we like to make our policies as straightforward as possible: with just two policies (Single and Annual) with three levels of cover to chooose from.

Make sure you check the policy wording though for all the terms, conditions and limts each policy offers.

Travelling with pre-existing medical conditions?

If any of your family have a pre-existing medical condition, this shouldn't stop you from enjoying a trip to its fullest. At Holiday Extras, we insure thousands of pre-existing medical conditions, and all conditions will be considered. When booking your policy, remember to declare any medical conditions you have been diagnosed with, past or present, and we can tailor a policy especially suited to your needs. Unfortunately, failure to declare a pre-existing medical condition could render your policy invalid should you need medical treatment abroad.
