Cruise travel insurance

Why you need specialist cruise travel insurance

A cruise can be a unique holiday, specialist cruise travel insurance covers you for the specific cruise related events that may occur, and that a standard policy will not include.

Please note that this website does include some policies which do not cover cruises at all. These are Avanti Max and Avanti Club cover – all other policies do include a degree of cruise cover.

Specialist cruise travel insurance can include the following cover:

  • Cabin confinement (being confined to your cabin due to illness).

  • Unused excursions (as a result of cabin confinement).

  • Missed port departure.

  • Itinerary change.

  • Additional cancellation cover

Please refer to your specific policy wording for full details of the cover available.

You can get a quote for a specialist cruise policy here: AllClear Cruise

Frequently asked questions about cruise travel insurance

What country do you select within the quote journey if you are going on a cruise?

For a single trip policy, please enter all countries which you are travelling both to and through.

For an annual multi-trip policy, please select the relevant destination. This could be Europe, Worldwide excluding USA, Canada and the Caribbean – or Worldwide including USA, Canada and the Caribbean.
