Travel insurance for your cruise

Cover-More Travel Insurance protects you on land and sea during your cruise

New Zealand SafeTravel says “Do not leave New Zealand without comprehensive travel and medical insurance.”

Whether you’re taking a cruise to the Pacific Islands, a European river cruise, or enjoying the trip of a lifetime to the Galapagos or 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.
