Cheap Cruise Travel Insurance - Webjet
Getting on board a boat carries its own set of unique risks that a standard policy won't be able to cover. Whether it's your first cruise or twentieth, it's essential to make sure you're protected with cruise travel insurance.
What is Cruise Travel Insurance?
Cruise travel insurance is a specific policy aimed at the activities and risks associated with a cruise holiday.
A comprehensive plan will cover you for missed port departures, trip cancellation or last-minute itinerary changes.
If you're visiting a number of different countries, cruise insurance saves you the hassle and cost of having to take out cover for each destination.
Cruises also tend to last longer than your standard two week holiday. If you're at sea for months at a time, you need a policy that is valid for longer than 30 to 60 days. Standard annual insurance policies might not also cover the length of your trip, with most having a maximum duration of two months.
Pre-existing Medical Conditions
Cruises are a popular way to travel for people of all ages, but a majority tend to be slightly older than your average 20-something backpacker. It's common for most travel insurance premiums to double when the applicant is over 65 years old and or be refused cover.
People with pre-existing medical conditions are often met with similar issues when it comes to applying for standard travel insurance.
However, cruise insurance doesn't have an age limit and has more flexibility when it comes to medical conditions making it easier for holiday goers to get the cover they need.
What Do I Need to Include in My Cruise Insurance?
Here are some of the key factors you should consider when comparing cruise travel insurance quotes:
- Gadgets: If you're travelling with cameras, laptops, a mobile phone and other devices, make sure they are covered in case of accidental loss, damage or theft.
- Missed port or departure: If your scheduled port visit is cancelled, or you miss your boat you can submit a claim and receive a refund.
- Unused excursion: If you're unable to take part in a pre-planned outing, you can claim that amount back with your travel insurance policy.
How to Get Cheap Cruise Travel Insurance
The best way to get a reasonable price on your cruise travel insurance policy is to get quotes from several providers. Use Webjet to find multiple options for your trip and select the one that's perfect for you.
But before you purchase a deal, always weigh up the cost of the policy price next to the excess. It might be worth to pay for a more expensive cruise travel insurance policy if it lowers the cost of any potential claims.
