Kids go free

If you have a family and love to travel together, the good news is that kids go free on your travel insurance policy. All you need to do is add them under ‘Travellers’ Details’ when filling in our online form to ensure they are listed under your policy. That gives many parents some well-deserved peace of mind! The only conditions you need to remember are that you (the policy holder) have to be the legal guardian of the dependent child or children, and they must be primarily dependent on you - in other words they can’t be self-sufficient and have a full time job.

When we talk about ‘dependent children’ with regard to your travel insurance, it can mean your unmarried children, stepchildren, foster children, grandchildren or even nieces or nephews who are 17 years old or younger at the starting date of your insurance. If you are their primary caregiver or guardian, your travel insurance policy covers them too.

It may be of interest to know that there is limited cover for children aged 15 years or younger under the ‘Personal Accident’ section. This section is designed to cover adults that can no longer continue their full time employment when they return to New Zealand due to an unexpected injury that occurs whilst on their journey. However, there are no age restrictions relating to cover for unexpected accidents or injuries under the ‘Medical & Evacuation’ section.
