The question on eveyones' lips...Do I need to buy travel insurance as my credit card offers free cover? Find out here...
Let's face it, even though we adore cruising and all the adventure, fun, activities, excitement and relaxation that it brings, we all want to end up safely home on good 'ole terra firma. Here at Easy Travel Insurance, we don't want to see you left 'High and Dry'. Life on a cruise ship can be the best fun of your life, partying at night, and waking in a different country every day, relaxing by the pool and enjoying countless deck activities. Check carefully when comparing the Product Disclosure Statement that you have cover for all the activities you may encounter and want to join in with, both on board, and at any destination that your ship docks at.
Cruising cover is covered automatically and is free of charge on all travel plans.
As soon as you book your cruise you need cover for cancellation due to one of the defined events shown in the Product Disclosure Statement. This can include, accident or unforeseen illness to one of the travelling party or their relatives, retrenchment, jury duty, natural disaster/severe weather, insolvency of one of the travelling parties or cruise line. Please refer to the Product Disclosure Statement for full details.
You also need to think very carefully about the logistics of being away on the high seas, you are not covered for hospital or medical costs by your usual private or public health care provider.
Medical facilities on most cruise liners are necessarily limited and may result in some travellers being off-loaded at the next port and taken to the local hospital for treatment. That's why it's essential to have adequate travel insurance to cover you for not only the treatment but also the additional cost of repatriation back to Australia. Will your insurer evacuate you from a ship by helicopter if required? QBE will!!
