Despite the pretty crazy weather we’ve had this week with snow in April then glorious sunshine in May (what’s going on Mama Nature?), summer is definitely the horizon which means holiday time baby!
With May half term a few weeks away I imagine many of you will have getaways in the diary, however, if you’re still in need of some trip-spiration, get ready to feel inspired…here are a few snaps from last year’s family adventures from Jamaica to Spain, Portugal and France, we had a ball in 2015.
We’re currently planning our family summer jollies, but I’ve also just booked my annual pilgrimage to the Cannes Film Festival and can’t wait until I’m back on the majestic Cotes D’ Azure.
I love the glamour and energy of Cannes Film Festival. Sometimes it feels so surreal, it’s like being in your own movie – dashing from red carpet premiers to A-list parties. It’s a crazy wonderful experience.
Here’s a few snaps from festivals gone by…
What a whirlwind!
To truly relax while away, it’s important to me to have the best possible holiday insurance for my family and I which is why I’m excited to announce that I’m partnering with the award winning travel insurance provider, Holidaysafe.
Plus to celebrate this partnership, Holidaysafe are kindly offering one lucky Honest Mum reader the chance to win a £100 John Lewis voucher – perfect for picking up new holiday outfits for the whole family for your vacay.
More on that later….
I’ll be using Holidaysafe’s travel insurance on all of our 2016 adventures including my upcoming trip to Cannes in two weeks and arranging the insurance has never been easier. Polite, knowledgeable staff were able to answer every question I had.
And that’s just one of many reasons which makes Holidaysafe’s travel insurance so utterly reassuring.
Here are more reasons-
Firstly, Holidaysafe offer a number of different policies from normal Annual Multi Trip to Single Trip policies, as well as their outstanding specialist family policy which does exactly what it says on the tin and is one of the few insurance packages on the market to be developed with families in mind.
This package offers families complete peace of mind while travelling.
For example, wherever you are in the world, you can guarantee you’ll receive the best possible medical care available minus the prospect of returning home to huge bills.
There is even access to a 24 hour medical emergency line that is managed by doctors which is especially reassuring for worrisome mums like myself.
Prefer staycations to vacations? You’re in luck as their family packages also cover UK breaks too!
Adventurous families will benefit from automatic cover for 100 sports and activities as well as winter sport packages too.
Plus, it covers all the family essentials such as buggies, car seats and strollers.
Basically everything a family might need including the kitchen sink!
Making a claim is easy too. Their UK-based call centres are all in-house guaranteeing you instant access to those that can help.
It’s little wonder Holidaysafe have been recognised in the Which? Best Rate tables for six consecutive years as well as being voted Travel Insurance Provider of the Year at the 2016 and 2014 Consumer Moneyfacts Awards.
So all these benefits sound expensive right? Well fear not as Holidaysafe’s travel insurance is incredible value.
Their specialist family policies start from just £11.40 for full family cover as children under the age of 21 travel for free with great discounts for single parent families too.
For more information on family policies head to Holidaysafe’s website.
They also tailor packages for backpackers, gap years, winter sports enthusiasts plus much more.
