Cruise Travel Insurance

An estimated one-third of Australian residents travel overseas without travel insurance in the hope that nothing is going to happen to them. A simple infection, an unexpected accident, eating the wrong food – all this could lead to unexpected medical bills.  All of the international policies available offer cover for medical expenses overseas, up to an 'unlimited; amount, for up to 12 months after an illness first appears or an injury first occurs. 

Imagine the cost of a medical evacuation back to Australia because the traveller did not take out travel insurance; these costs can be in the tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars. Taking out the right travel insurance might save you and your family from having to take out a mortgage on your house or seeking other sources of funds to cover those costs.

A lot of cruise companies now require people to have some form of travel insurance before they board the ship. That’s because they know medical service on ships can be costly, especially if the person needs to be transported to the mainland. Don’t be caught out, make sure you insure yourself for your cruise today.
