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 great packages for single parents so you can get great, affordable straightforward cover.

Do I need travel insurance for my children?

With Holiday Extras, getting the whole family properly insured at a reasonable rate is pretty straightfoward, with a Bronze adult policy. 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 kids to travel abroad on their own, 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?

It's great to shop around before you book to get the most suited deal for travel insurance for a single parent. 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 termr, 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 applying for travel insurance with us. At Holiday Extras, we will consider all pre-existing medical conditions through the discreet screening process, and offer cover for the majority of conditions. 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.
