    Under 18 Travel insurance 5th Jul 17 at 6:08 PM
    Hi there. First time poster!

    My 17yr old daughter wants to travel to the USA and Europe this summer with a 19yr old friend. I am trying to get travel insurance for her. So far if I arrange the insurance the family cover is ONLY for 16 yr olds on an organised school/college trip and with a responsible adult. Therefore she would not be covered as her trip is NOT organised by school/college.
    What travel insurance can she get as a 17 yr old to travel independently with a 19 yr old? Thank you for your assistance.

    Insureandgo's annual multi-trip policy states;

    Everyone on an annual multi-trip policy is entitled to travel
    independently, but children under 18 who travel alone must be
    dropped off and picked up by a responsible adult aged 18 or
    over.
    So she would be covered as she is travelling with an nineteen year old. Of course I don't know about your policy.
