Families with children in the UK took on average between 3.9 and 5.6 holidays in 2019, according to a report by the Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA), with many families splitting their choice of holiday between the UK and overseas.

Every parent wants to make sure that neither they nor their children face any difficulties while they're on holiday, be that home or abroad. But if something does happen, having the right travel insurance for your family can provide invaluable peace of mind.

Direct Line's Annual Multi-trip cover is suitable for families taking more than one holiday in a year. You can choose how many adults to insure, and children are covered when travelling with an adult insured under the policy or on trips organised by schools or recognised organisations that are supervised by adults.

You'll all be insured should you need emergency medical assistance because of an accident or illness. Existing medical conditions must be declared and accepted by us in order for them to be covered.

You can also choose additional cover for personal possessions, insuring them against loss, theft or damage.

You and your family are also automatically covered for organised activities such as snorkelling, beach games and swimming. Should you be going skiing, you can add winter sports travel cover for an additional cost.

And because this is an annual policy, you'll be covered for an unlimited number of trips, up to 42 days each. If you add cover for winter sports, you're covered up to 22 days each year.

Annual Multi-trip cover is available to under 75s only.
