Leave the worry at home with Cruise Travel Insurance

Cruises are a great way to see the world. Waking up in a new destination each day is exciting, but also introduces new things that could potentially go wrong. Thankfully, our Cruise Travel Insurance is built to give you peace of mind at sea.

It’s not nice to think about something going wrong on your cruise, and having to use your travel insurance. But that’s what Cruise Travel Insurance is for. Having support there to help patch things up if they go pear-shaped.

To make it easier for you to get travelling again, you can get 10% off Covid-19 tests when you buy a new travel insurance policy with us.

Some cruise lines, including P&O and Cunard, now require passengers to have UK travel insurance that protects them for Covid-related emergency medical and repatriation expenses for £2 million. Speak to our customer service team about an endorsement certificate if this affects you.

Flexibility to change details online

When you buy a policy from us, you can manage it yourself by logging in to your My Avanti account. Here you can:

  • access policy documents
  • update traveller details
  • change your single trip dates (limits apply)
  • renew an annual policy if you have no changes to make
  • and more.

If you have questions about Covid-19 and how it affects your holiday plans, visit our Covid-19 help page.

Arthur, Heading to the Beach Having Travel Reassurance

It's not just travel insurance, it's travel reassurance!

When you’ve got Avanti Travel Insurance, if something does go wrong - we'll always aim to put it right. Good to know, especially if you’re travelling with pre-existing health conditions.

That’s Travel Reassurance!

Why having Cruise Travel Insurance is important

Liz1 bought her cruise insurance cover as soon as she booked her trip, all set for her upcoming holiday. But before her trip, she was unexpectedly taken into hospital for two days. Unfortunately, the day before she was due to go, her GP advised against travel due to health risks.

Liz rang us, asking what the process was to claim for cancellation of her holiday. After sending her claims form off, within three working days we reimbursed her.

By buying her travel insurance as soon as she’d booked her cruise, Liz was immediately covered for cancellation.

Do I need to have had all of my Covid jabs to be covered?

As long as you’ve had all of the Covid-19 vaccines you’ve been offered, you should be covered. If you haven’t been offered some doses yet or you’re medically exempt then you can also be covered.

If you’ve refused any doses of the vaccine or haven’t been able to have a dose you’ve been offered, you won’t be covered.

Cruise cover with pre-existing health conditions

If you’re living with pre-existing medical conditions, it shouldn’t stop you from having a great cruise. We just have to be a bit more careful, and that means making sure you’re covered properly.

By including your medical conditions on your travel insurance, you should be covered if something happens relating to your pre-existing health condition. Not mentioning any conditions could invalidate your policy.

So, whether you have heart conditions, diabetes, high blood pressure or anything else, it’s really important you let us know.

If you’re wondering if we can cover your condition, you can find out more information about travel insurance for people with pre-existing medical conditions.

Or give us a call and we’ll take the time to explain everything at a pace that suits you. We’ll never rush you.

Do I need to tell you all of the places we’ll visit on my Cruise Travel Insurance?

Even if you’re not planning on getting off the ship, you’ll still need to tell us all of the countries that you’ll be porting at. This helps us to make sure that we can offer you the right level of cruise insurance cover for that destination.

If you’re planning on taking out Single Trip Travel Insurance, you’ll need to list all the countries on your itinerary individually.

If you choose an Annual Travel Insurance policy, you’ll just need to make sure that the countries you’re going to, or porting at, over the next year are covered in the region you select.
