Dependants travel insurance age limits

Going on a family holiday with the kids in tow? Did you know that your dependents are covered for free under your policy? Yippee! That means you pay no extra, no matter how far, or how long you’re going on your well-deserved break.

Each insurer in New Zealand varies their definition of a “dependant” but luckily for you we’ve gone ahead and researched all the differences for you.

Be sure to include any dependents in your quote and on your Certificate of Insurance so they are covered - just because they may be included at no extra cost does not mean that their details don't need to be included.
