Do I need cruise travel insurance?

Cruises, like all other holiday types, come with travel risks so it is highly recommended that you take out a Cruise Travel Insurance policy to cover you for the duration of your trip.

At CruiseKings we highly recommend that you take out adequate travel insurance to cover you for the full duration of your cruise holiday.

Cruises are an exciting way to travel, but as with all forms of transportation they do come with risks.

Medical emergencies or Cancellation of voyages are rare, but will require specialist handling so it is important that you have adequate cover in the event of such a circumstance.

There are also many other less serious risks, such as losing your passport, missing the ship’s departure or being confined to your cabin due to illness which obviously disrupt the enjoyment of your holiday. Should any of these events occur, insurance will minimise the impact of this on your holiday plans, but only if you have a policy that has the correct cover.

Cruise travel insurance is widely available, however, if there is a specific reason why you do not want to take insurance some cruise lines may still allow you to travel upon signing of a disclaimer. This is strictly at the discretion of the cruise line and not available in all cases.

CruiseKings are an authorised Cruise Insurance supplier and can offer policies through Rush Insurance at highly competitive rates. Ask your Cruise Expert for a full quotation by calling us on 0800 197 8050.

Our first holiday in 2 and a half years

Initially spoke with Naomi, was given a pricing, didn’t feel that I wanted to book there and then, wanted some time to think it over. Had a few queries rang her back, all questions answered, still felt I needed some time, when I was ready rung her back and sainted to speak to her and booked without any issues. Naomi was clear in her explanations at every stage of our conversations.
