There is nothing more special than going on holiday with your family and nobody you would want to protect more than your children.

That’s why at Columbus Direct we offer you comprehensive family travel insurance, to ensure that you get the very best cover for your loved ones.

You can protect your family on either a single trip or annual multi trip basis, depending upon your travel plans for the year. If you intend to take just the one holiday, then the single trip insurance may well work out cheaper. One week’s cover for a family of four in Spain amounts to little more than £10, not a great deal of money for the peace of mind that family travel insurance offers. 

Alternatively, annual cover will provide protection for multiple holidays throughout the year, representing great value if you’re a frequent traveller. Children go free with this plan, which can add up to a huge saving if you’ve got a few kids. We try to offer as much flexibility as possible; so you’ll be pleased to know that everyone on your policy will be covered even if they travel independently, including the children.

Your Annual Multi-trip insurance will also provide cover for you, if you decide to take a break in the UK, so long as at least two nights are spent in pre-booked accommodation.

Some of the standard benefits for our Family Travel Insurance packages include:

  • A variety of different travel insurance policies to choose from including single trip and annual multi-trip.
  • Cover for up to £15 million per person for medical costs.
  • European or Worldwide cover is available.
  • Over 150 sports and activities automatically included as standard.
  • Optional ski and snowboard cover can be arranged.
  • Scheduled Airline Failure Insurance (SAFI) is included as standard.
  • Optional Gadget cover is available.
  • The choice to remove baggage cover from your plan, if you’re already covered by your home insurance.

Whether you plan to go camping in the Loire valley, watch the children build sandcastles on the Costa Del Sol, or take an unforgettable trip to Disneyland, it’s important you do it with the right safeguards in place. Let us travel with you and be your insurance policy against those moments in life that you just can’t predict.

With so many different levels of cover to choose from, Columbus can offer a quality insurance policy that will be right for you and your family. Our basic cover will help protect you against the potential threat of costly medical bills. Our comprehensive Gold cover, also includes baggage and cancellation cover, for added protection against the unknown.

So go ahead, create some golden memories and protect your loved ones on holiday this year with Columbus Direct. We’ll sit quietly in your suitcase unless you need us and be your backup if things don’t go to plan.
