Have you remembered the kids, but forgotten your Family Travel Insurance?...

What's the big deal?

You might be wondering what the big deal is - surely hundreds of families every year go on holiday without family travel insurance in place, right? Picture the scene; you're on the beach and one of your kids is stung by a jellyfish. A couple of hours later and they've had an allergic reaction and been taken to hospital for treatment.
