Travel Insurance Made for Cruising

Uniquely tailored for our cruise travellers, the comprehensive Options policy provides International and Domestic Cover. Whether you’re taking a short cruise out of Auckland, or a longer cruise to Australia and the Pacific Islands; or enjoying the trip of a lifetime on a European river cruise or to the Galapagos and Antarctica, here’s why travel insurance can help protect your cruise:

Cover medical costs onboard

Once your cruise leaves New Zealand, even if you are still in domestic waters, you are no longer covered by ACC. On-board medical expenses are usually billed by the cruise line directly to your credit card. If you need to be evacuated from the ship to the closest hospital or from a port back to New Zealand, costs can quickly escalate to $80,000 or more.

Your luggage misses the boat

If your luggage is delayed and your ship sails before your bag catches up with you, delayed luggage cover will reimburse you for reasonable expenses to replace your delayed items (check your policy for limits and conditions and remember to keep receipts).

Recover non-refundable expenses

If you are unable to go on your cruise due to unforeseen circumstances such as sudden illness or injury, travel insurance can help you recover non-refundable, pre-paid costs such as deposits or on-shore bookings.
