Cruise Travel Insurance
Standard travel insurance policies don’t tend to include Cruise cover. Travel Addict offers specialist Cruise Travel Insurance as an optional upgrade or add-on to our General Travel Insurance product. To give you that peace of mind when crossing the big blue.

DO I REALLY NEED CRUISE TRAVEL INSURANCE:
There are significant differences between traditional travel insurance and having specialist Cruise Travel Insurance. You will not be covered for your Cruise unless you purchase the upgrade or have an annual multi-trip policy, where Cruise cover is included. If you are unsure whether you are/will be covered please check your policy wordings or contact us directly.

MOST COMMON ISSUES DURING A CRUISE:
The first thing that you should really be aware of is that travel insurance covers you before you’ve actually travelled. This means that you should buy it in advance of your actual departure date. Our cancellation cover will help you where you have a valid reason to cancel, or the cruise itself is stopped by the provider.
Another important consideration is that you will be miles from home and often far from the nearest land-based medical facilities. Modern cruises often now have medical personnel on board, such as a doctor or a nurse. Our medical cover will help provide assistance should any emergency treatment be required. Cruises tend to be longer than your average holiday and consequently you will take more luggage with you. The last thing you need to be worrying about is how you are going to afford to replace your belongings should anything unfortunate happen to them.
You will also be covered if you miss your port departure time due to mechanical failure or accident of the vehicle you are travelling in and delay of public transport that is out of your control. This can be extremely frustrating and precisely why missed port departure is included in our Cruise Travel Insurance.
Unfortunately, in some cases, it is not possible for some ports to be accessed. If a scheduled port visit is cancelled during your cruise for reasons such as adverse weather conditions or timetable restrictions, and no alternative port can be offered then our Cruise Itenary Change cover will be accessible to you.
