Travel Insurance.
Stay worry-free at sea.

Travel insurance is an essential part of your holiday plans.

Be aware when organising your insurance, that uninsured travellers (or their families) and travellers without the appropriate level of cover, are held personally liable for cancellation, medical and associated costs incurred at any time whether before the cruise, on board or overseas.

Hospitalisation costs on board or outside of the country and medical evacuation costs are very expensive and are not covered by Medicare, New Zealand Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) or private health insurance. Daily hospital bills can cost as much as AUD5,000 per day. Don’t base your insurance decision on the assumption that ‘it won’t happen to me’ – accidents do happen.

If something goes wrong, you want expert help fast so you can keep travelling.
