23 April 2009 – Travelling with young children can be a worry but a new travel insurance policy from Tinytotsaway has been designed specifically for families, giving parents a raft of family-friendly options for maximum protection when travelling abroad.

Costing from just £48.82 for a family, the Tinytotsaway policy is perfect for the credit crunch as children are covered for free and there are no policy excesses on claims for children’s illness or injury.

The multi-trip annual travel insurance policies come with two levels of cover - standard or premier and can cover European or worldwide destinations. All policies include 17 days of cover for winter sports, both on and off piste.

The policies provide flexibility for single parent families and also allow the option of adding grandparents, au pairs or nannies to the same policy for a small additional fee, yet still allows independent travel for each adult covered.

Families also get the benefit of a 24-hour medical emergency advice line with access to an English-speaking doctor should they or their child become ill while in a foreign country. The help line will also direct them to the nearest hospital with paediatric facilities anywhere in the world.

Other family specific benefits include additional cover to hire a replacement buggy if theirs is damaged in transit, special terms for disabled children and a free booklet offering advice on what to take, tips on flying with babies, how to get an EHIC card and how it can be used.

“Travel insurance is notoriously obscure in its terms and conditions with the result that many families are misinformed about what they need. Some people even travel without any cover at all in the mistaken belief that the British Government will somehow cover these costs and rescue them in an emergency,” explains Sandra Smith, founder of Tinytotsaway, the company trusted by parents to deliver baby and child items to holiday destinations.

“Parents use our holiday delivery service so that they can keep their baby or child safe using products they’re familiar with. Our new travel insurance policy offers parents additional assurance that their family will be looked after while they’re on holiday, no matter what happens,” says Sandra.

The insurance is underwritten by Travel Insurance Facilities and can be purchased online at
