Family Travel Insurance| Tips on purchasing insurance when travelling with parents

Family travelling insurance is more cost-effective than individual insurance. Generally, premiums on parents cover guarantees on children. However, general family travel insurance only covers children aged 18 and below and the guarantee amount is relatively small. The guarantee on physical accidents is only HK$200,000. You may purchase additional travel insurance for your children.


Family Travel Insurance from Travel Insurance companies generally covers no people aged 70 and above or some guarantees will be 25%-50% lower. Some dangerous activities are not covered. You should read the clauses carefully. Tourism insurances with no restrictions on the age general require higher premiums, but they provide more guarantees.
