Travelling with friends. It doesn’t get much better than that!
Whether you're backpacking with your best friend, taking a short weekend break with a few mates, or going on tour with a big group, great company can make exploring new places even greater.
We understand there's a lot to organise when you're planning a holiday. But in between booking your flight and discussing the must do’s at your destination, it’s important to get travel insurance in case you run into any unexpected emergency situations.
You're probably buying your flights and booking your accommodation together, so why not save time and money and buy your travel insurance together too?
Our Duo travel insurance provides cover for any two adults travelling together and covers unexpected expenses you might incur such as if you become sick or injured, your belongings are lost or stolen, your flights are delayed, or the cancellation of your trip if one of you gets unexpectedly sick or injured before you even leave home!
You can’t predict everything that will happen when you go travelling, but with Fast Cover's travel insurance, at least you know that you and your friends are covered if the unexpected does occur.
Who can buy friends travel insurance?
Any two adults travelling together can take out our Duo travel insurance. No matter if you’re travelling as two friends, two siblings, two colleagues, or two neighbours, whatever the age difference, you can buy Friends travel insurance from Fast Cover.
You might be two mates going on a schoolies trip, besties backpacking through Southeast Asia, friends taking a cruise in the Pacific Islands, a couple on a working holiday in Canada or attending a destination wedding, or just taking a well-earned holiday with a close friend.
And if you're travelling with a larger crew, we can arrange insurance for groups of friends too! There’s no limit to the number of people that can be covered.
We’re experienced in organising travel insurance for big groups, and we know the effort that’s involved in getting all the information required from everyone. We've made it as fast and simple as possible and eliminated the need for individual medical assessments.
If you’re the organiser of the trip, make it easier for yourself, call us and we'll help you get the cover you're after.
What information do I need to get a quote or buy travel insurance for my friends?
We've made organising travel insurance for a group of friends as fast and simple as possible.
To get a quote, all you’ll need to know is:
- Where you’re travelling
- The dates you’re travelling (when you leave your home and when you return home)
- The current ages of your friends
To purchase your policy, the extra information you’ll need is:
- Everyone's first name and surname
- Everyone's birth dates
- Contact details
To save you time, we can use the contact details of one traveller (usually the organiser) and send you everyone's certificates, or we can put in everyone's contact details individually and distribute the insurance certificates on your behalf. Whatever makes it easier for you.
What are the benefits of friends travel insurance?
Great cover for everyone:
Everyone that’s part of a Duo travel insurance policy has the same great benefits of our Single travel insurance policies.
Better value for money:
Save money when you get Friends travel insurance with a 5% discount when you buy insurance for two or more people. That means more money to put towards the trip!
Friends travel insurance can also be more convenient. If you’re travelling as a group, you’ll have less policy numbers to remember and only one set of contact details to take with you, rather than carrying around a stack of paperwork.
In the event that something does happen whilst you’re away, your friends will be the ones best placed to help you. If you’re all insured by the same insurance company, you’ll have the contact details at hand for emergency assistance immediately. This can avoid the added stress of trying to work out who's insured with who and find someone’s travel insurance details in a critical situation.
Faster and easier:
We make buying travel insurance fast and simple by automatically covering 43 Pre-Existing Medical Conditions with our Friends travel insurance so you don’t have to fill a bunch of individual medical forms!
See our Pre-Existing Medical Conditions page for more details.
