Cruise travel insurance

Whether cruising to the Baltics or Brazil, nobody likes to think about something going wrong, either in the lead up to or during their holiday.

Ensuring you have adequate travel insurance can give you the peace of mind that if the untoward should happen, such as falling ill, or a flight being delayed causing you to miss your ship’s departure, you’ll have cover in place.

Saga Cruise Travel Insurance

You may not already know this, but all Saga Travel Insurance policies provide cover for cruises as standard. You don’t have to pay extra for specific cruise insurance.

If you like to take a few different holidays each year, why not consider annual multi-trip insurance? Naturally, cruises are covered as standard, so you don’t need to worry about taking out additional insurance and there’s no need to sort out a new policy for each trip you take.

If you’re not enjoying the delightful peace and quiet of having the ship to yourself when in port, you’re likely to be hopping on and off in many different countries. Make sure that all your cruise destinations are covered by your travel insurance. For example, although Spain is usually covered under European cover, you tend to need to choose worldwide cover for Egypt.
