Choosing the Right Group or Family Travel Insurance Policy
When it comes to selecting the right level of cover for your family or group trip, there are a number of things you should take into consideration. You need to ensure your policy provides enough cover for you to fall back on if something should happen, so that you’re not left out of pocket in an emergency situation.
Here’s what you need to think about before choosing your cheap travel insurance plan from Insure4less:

We also cover a large selection of pre-existing medical conditions on application.Our Medical Emergency Service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year to assist you immediately with any serious illnesses or injuries while you and your family or group are abroad.
- Luggage and Valuables Cover: Cover limits for luggage, valuables and personal effects vary between the different types and levels of group and family travel insurance. Make sure you think about how much you are bringing with you, and choose the appropriate cover to match.
- Destinations: You need to select all the destinations you will be travelling to when you apply for cover, to ensure you and your family or group will be protected everywhere you go. This includes any stopovers, even if it’s just for a day or two.At Insure4less we cover most destinations around the world, and if you’re going on a cruise then this is automatically covered too!

Travelling as a Family or Group: Vital Travel Tips
Whether you’re travelling with a large school or sports tour, or in a family with young children, it’s important that you take steps before and during your trip to stay safe and make it as hassle-free as possible.
Here are our top tips for family and group travel:
Organisation is key
Plan and research your trip in advance to choose destinations, accommodation and activities that are fun and safe for everyone involved. If you have little ones travelling with you, look for family friendly spots and be realistic about the kinds of things you can do with them. Don’t over-extend yourself, and if you set a budget then stick to it!
This is especially important if you’re travelling with children. Get them involved in the packing process, and remember to bring extra snacks, toys and entertainment to help them get through long flights or road trips.
If your kids are young, it’s a good idea to have a variety of their favourite toys because their attention spans are short. But if you have older children, an mp3 player, gaming console or media player will usually be enough to keep them occupied.
Carry documentation with you
Keep copies of all your important documents with you, such as Passports, visas and travel tickets. If you’re travelling with children in a country where child trafficking is common, you should also carry extra documentation which proves your child is yours, for example, their birth certificate or adoption papers.
You’re much less likely to get into trouble or encounter problems if you travel in a group rather than alone, especially if you’re in a foreign country. Make decisions as a group and try and accommodate for everyone’s preferences. If you do need to separate, do so in smaller groups and arrange a place and time for everyone to meet up again.
Learn the area and the local emergency contacts
Unfamiliar countries can be exciting but there are also many dangers you can encounter as a tourist in a foreign place, so try and stick to known tourist hubs and areas that accommodate for visitors. Get advice from your hotel concierge or accommodation about the best places to visit in the area, and if there are any particular places you should avoid.
It’s also important to make a note of the local emergency contact numbers for every destination you visit, so that you can always reach the police or medical assistance if you need it.
Take out quality family or group travel insurance that will provide you with the cover you’ll need if something goes wrong. At Insure4less we provide a range of policies that will protect you, your family and your belongings no matter where in the world you are.
