One of the most significant benefits of taking out family holiday insurance or single parent holiday insurance is the potential discounts that are often available.
Children can sometimes be covered for free on their parents' policies - although you should check for age limits as some policies class children as under 16s, some under 18s and some will cover children in full time education into their 20s!
With so much variety in family structure, you can be sure that whatever your situation and however many children you have there will be a family travel insurance policy to suit your needs - both dual and single parent family cover are now offered as standard.
If you decide to take out an annual policy and you and your children are planning to travel separately during the course of the year it is worth taking out family insurance that will cover each individual whether travelling as part of the family group or by themselves.
Some family policies will also allow children to travel with relatives or friends who have separate cover with that particular insurer.
These are all things to look out for if you are unsure of your travel plans over the course of a year.
Whether you choose to add winter or even extreme sports options to your policy, by choosing a family ski insurance or extreme sports policy which fulfils all your requirements, you can really relax and make the most out of your holiday.
