Family Fund Travel Insurance

3rd September 2012 from Family Fund

Family Fund has partnered with Holiday Direct Insurance (part of Kerry London Ltd) to provide families who are raising a disabled or seriously ill child low cost travel insurance.
Everyone likes a holiday and the chance to take time out from the day to day routine. For many families with disabled children the need for a break can be a life saver as the day to day additional pressures can often be too great. Although the break is often accessible, affordable travel insurance has not always been so.

Holiday Direct Insurance has worked with the Family Fund to launch a travel insurance policy to provide families with cover to suit their flexible and complex needs. 

Cheryl Ward, Chief Executive of the Family Fund said: “A family break away can dramatically improve physical and emotional well being. It helps families who are raising a disabled or seriously ill child to enjoy life and the world outside the daily pressures.  Families told us the difficulties they were experiencing in finding an affordable travel policy, and it could often be the difference between taking a break or not .  Now that we are able to offer them competitive travel insurance through Kerry London, it is one less thing that families need to worry about.”

Richard Woolford, Managing Director at Holiday Direct Insurance said: “Holiday Direct Insurance is delighted to be able to be able to offer an exclusive travel insurance facility to The Family Fund. Working closely with The Family Fund we have negotiated an online quote and buy system which keeps administration to a minimum and enables families to concentrate on enjoying a holiday together”
