LONDON, March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
It's time to start planning the Easter holiday and leading travel insurance and assistance provider, Allianz Global Assistance in the UK, is offering families some top tips on enjoying a stress-free trip. Keeping the children occupied over the school holidays is draining enough, but Allianz Global Assistance reminds families to book family travel insurance before they go away for added peace of mind. Travelling with the right cover means parents can sit back and relax, knowing they are fully protected.
"Whether it's the Easter weekend at Disneyland Paris, a week in sunny Spain or a fly-drive to Florida, families need to make sure they travel with adequate insurance to cover them for the unexpected," says Lee Taylor, Chief Sales Officer at Allianz Global Assistance in the UK. "Travelling with the children makes it more important than ever to protect the whole family. An unexpected issue, such as lost luggage, illness or an accident could bring a dream holiday to an abrupt end. However, family travel insurance can minimise the stress and anxiety by providing the support and advice parents need, when they need it most."Families travelling more than once or twice a year could opt for a multi-trip policy. This may be the most cost-effective option and means they only have to book once to get the cover they need on every trip, whether it's a weekend in the UK or a longer trip abroad. Getting the family holiday organised can be a stressful experience, but our top tips on travelling with children mean families don't have to arrive with tempers fraying - instead they can take it easy all the way."
