All individuals named on a family policy can travel independently of each other. Therefore children are covered to travel separately to their parents.

However, under annual multi-trip policies, if the child is in full time education at a college or university in or out the Republic of Ireland and:

  1. Resides at the home address in Ireland for 3 or more nights of the week – we can cover that child under a family rated policy and they would be covered for any independent travel; or
  2. Resides at the home address in Ireland for less than 3 nights a week – we can cover that child under a family rated policy, but they are only covered whilst travelling with a family member insured under the family rated AMT (ie the child at university/college would not be covered for a holiday away with the girls/lads).

On the annual multi-trip policy, travel within your country of residence (Ireland and UK only) is covered provided you have 2 or more nights pre-booked accommodation.

Guided cross country skiing, heli-skiing, mono skiing, off-piste skiing or snowboarding, recreational racing, ski-blading, skiing, snow-boarding and snow sledging are all included in the Winter sports option on single trip, annual multi-trip and ski single trip options.
