How Cruise Travel Insurance can Rescue the Distressed Vacationer

Recent headlines broadcast the plight of an elderly Whippany, NJ couple. Kicked off their cruise vacation in a foreign country due to the wife’s medical emergency, the couple underwent a horrific experience just to get home. Add that to the $3,400 - close to two times as much the pair spent on the cruise - and the cause for travel insurance becomes magnified.

Cruise Travel Insurance 

Here is what Cruise Travel Insurance can offer:

  • Trip Cancellation Coverage
    If you cancel your trip for any covered reason, you will be reimbursed for the non-refundable payment related to the cruise.

  • Trip Interruption Coverage
    In the event of a medical emergency (think the above example), a vehicle accident, bad weather, and any other covered situation that causes an interruption in your travel plans,
    you will be reimbursed for non-refundable prepayment (up to the limits of your policy).

  • Missed Connecting Transportation Coverage
    In the event you miss your connecting flight or other transportation method by 3 or more hours to make your departing ship voyage: you will be reimbursed for unused, non-refundable fees, along with added transportation costs necessary to get you to the ship.

  • Baggage Delay Coverage
    Should your luggage miss the cruise departure time by 12 or more hours, you will be reimbursed for the costs of personal articles and related expenses.

  • Emergency Medical Evacuation Coverage
    Like the NJ couple example cited, in the event of a medical evacuation, you will be assisted with travel arrangements to get you back home in safety.

Cruise Travel Insurance can also cover on-board medical costs, as well as assist you in the event of lost or stolen valuables.
