Family travel insurance questions

What kind of travel insurance policies do you offer for families?

We offer three types of policy. It all depends on your budget and the way you like to travel. The cheapest option is our Economy policy. Our Standard policy gives extra baggage, cancellation and medical cover and our Superior policy offers up to £10m of medical cover as well as gadget cover and lots of other benefits.

Do World First offer special rates for single-parent families?

Yes. Both our single-trip travel insurance and family annual travel insurance policies include special rates for single-parent families. The definition is one adult and up to four children under 18 who live at home.

If we buy annual travel insurance, can each member of the family go on holiday independently of the others?

Unfortunately not. Our policies do not cover anyone under the age of 18 to travel independently of the named adults on a policy. We can however insure travellers who are under the age of 18 and wanting to travel alone on their own separate policy.

What is the maximum length of time we can be away on holiday for with a family policy?

With our single-trip policies, we can insure any trip lasting up to a year. Our annual policies cover trips lasting either 31 or 62 days at a time, but you can travel as often as you like. At no extra cost.

Do you offer a 24-hour emergency helpline for families?

We are one of the leading independent travel insurance specialists. We have contracted the leading providers of assistance services for the benefit of all our policyholders. And our emergency team are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to arrange hospital admission, ambulance transfers and repatriation to the UK should something unexpected happen while you're on holiday.

Our son has cancer. Can you offer him travel insurance?

We are able to insure many types of cancer. Where it is not possible, we have a direct relationship with a team of cancer travel insurance specialists and will be happy to transfer your case.

We are taking gran and granddad with us, who are aged 76 and 88. Do you offer travel insurance for people aged up to 100?

Yes. Our single-trip polices cover anyone up to the age of 100. And if your family have any health problems and need travel insurance for pre-existing medical conditions we can arrange that too. Just visit the website or call our helpline on 0345 90 80 161.
