What is cruise travel insurance?

    If you love to take your holidays at sea, you may find that regular travel insurance doesn’t necessarily give you the level of cover you require. That’s why we compare travel insurance policies that also cover those who love to go on cruises.

  • Travel insurance policies for pre-existing medical conditions are available
  • If you’re a frequent cruiser and travel more than twice a year, it might be worth considering annual trip cover

What could cruise travel insurance cover?

    • Medical cover is extremely important especially if you are hundreds of miles away from the mainland and require medical assistance
    • Delayed departure/abandoning your trip due to poor weather conditions, strike, industrial action or mechanical problems could also be covered
    • Cancellations and curtailment for pre-paid travel, accommodation and excursions if you have to cancel your trip in an emergency
    • Personal belongings, money and baggage cover could come in handy if your items are stolen, accidently lost or damaged during your trip
