INSIDE: The Best Travel Insurance Cost Comparison Guide for Families.

Buying travel insurance is one of those time consuming jobs most people put off till the last minute.

You have to decide on so many factors – what’s included, and what’s NOT included, how quickly you can get help in the event something goes wrong, and then you have to compare costs so you don’t get ripped off.

We want to make the decision easier for families so we’ve written a guide to the best travel insurance for families on vacation and traveling on longer trips too. 

We’d love your feedback so we can make this the best guide out.

We are in the process of creating a quick look chart to compare travel insurance companies, and their features including what their policy covers, age limits, restrictions on activities, and how easily customers can make a successful claim when something goes wrong. 

We compare travel insurance policy inclusions such as:

  • medical incidents and emergencies including how they consider and rate pre-existing conditions
  • trip cancellation and loss of money
  • baggage replacement
  • public liability
  • rental car hire, and car breakdowns
  • included activities and when you need to pay for extras such as water sports, cruising, snowboarding, skiing, etc 
  • levels of cover for dependent children in family policies

We’ve only selected companies that have been in business more than 10 years, and who have a good rating from AM Best, an insurance rating agency.
