Travel insurance for your cruise holiday

Why cover your cruise?

When it’s time to set sail on your cruise holiday, the last things you want to think about are unexpected bills and issues that may arise on board. Take out cruise travel insurance from Cover-More and go on your holiday with peace of mind.

When you cover your journey, it protects your hard earned savings in case of trip cancellation due to illness, injury or death of you or your relatives. As cruise operators usually have strict cancellation terms, that usually means you will receive $0 refund if you have to cancel. Take out our cruise insurance policy so you aren’t out of pocket and can claim your lost fees. 

Medical costs on board

When you book your holiday on a cruise ship, you probably aren’t thinking about the medical facilities on board. We hope you never have to use them, but if something unexpected happens and you do need those services, the cruise line will charge you separately for them. If your condition is severe enough to require evacuation, an air ambulance evacuation from the ship or back home to Australia can cost up to tens of thousands of dollars– and that’s before the hospital bills.

Your luggage doesn’t arrive

Delayed luggage can become more than just an inconvenience on a cruise. If your bag is a few hours late or even a day late catching up with you on your holiday, it’s often not a big drama. A few toiletry purchases at the gift shop, and you can get by until your bag arrives. However, if your ship sails before you get all your luggage back, it can make a huge difference to your cruise experience and can negatively impact your holiday enjoyment. Remember to check your policy limits and keep receipts to submit with your claim. Get a quote online to find out how.
