When you book your cruise, you probably aren’t thinking about the medical facilities onboard. We hope you never have to use them, but if you do, know that you’ll be charged separately by the cruise line for those services. Then, if you have a condition serious enough to require evacuation, an air ambulance evacuation from the ship or back home to Australia can cost up to $85,000 – and that’s before the hospital bills.
Delayed luggage can become more than just an inconvenience on a cruise. If your bag is a few hours 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 last 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. Remember to check your policy limits and keep receipts to submit with your claim.
For unforeseen circumstances beyond your control - like sudden illness or injury – travel insurance could help you recover your non-refundable pre-paid costs including pre-paid deposits.
