My wife and myself have custody of our 5yo grandson and

Customer Question

Hi. My wife and myself have custody of our 5yo grandson and we are taking him on a 29 day holiday. As we receive complimentary travel insurance with our Credit Card we have been told he is not eligible to be included in the free insurance. The wording on the policy states: "dependent child/ children" means.
"All children up to the age of 18, who the cardholder has sole custody of and who live with the cardholder".
Our grandson lives with us and we have custody of as per court order from the Melbourne Children's Court.
My interpretation of the wording is that he should be covered under this policy.
If you require more information i am happy to provide it.
Your reply would be appreciated.
Kindest Regards.
James Ware.
