    Travel insurance question. 15th Oct 16 at 8:12 AM
    My family were due to go to Florida on Monday with my parents and my brother and his family. My sister-in-law was found to have a broken hip yesterday and is due to have surgery later today. I have spoken to our insurance company but the claims department are closed until 9am Monday so am unable to get 'proper' advise. Has anyone been in a similar situation and is able to advise how much we are likely to be able to claim back? Obviously park tickets have been booked as well as cars, flights and accommodation. Trouble is we're booked to be collected by mini bus are 6.30am so need to decide whether to cancel or if the loss will be too great, to go ahead with the holiday minus my brother. Ideally we'd like to cancel and rebook. Any advise would be much appreciated.

    Read up your policy to see if cancellation by you due to a member of the party being unable to travel is covered, and if so then check your wording to see what items of your trip will be covered

    Then take it from there.

    Do you all have travel Insurance with the same company or has each family arranged their own cover?

    We've all got our own cover. We're insured against the cost of the holiday, just wondered about park tickets, etc. Park tickets alone were £5000!
