Best Family Travel Insurance

Jungle Surfing (zip lining) in the Daintree Rainforest of Queensland, AustraliaIt’s important to get family travel insurance. The peace of mind is important not to mention the relief you’ll feel if you do happen to need it.

For Aussies, you can’t beat World2Cover for family travel insurance. We’ve done the research and they come out the cheapest, with the best coverage. Kids travel for free. It’s a no-brainer.

For our international readers, since there are so many variables and we can’t research each countries options, we always recommend World Nomads. We are long time users of World Nomads. They are fantastic and we can recommend them to you because it doesn’t matter your country of origin you can get a policy with them.

Most travel insurance policies are only given if you are a resident of the country. This is a worldwide travel insurance company which is great.
