Planning on taking a well-deserved cruising holiday? Perhaps a jaunt around the Mediterranean, a trip to the Caribbean, or even a whale watching trip in Canada? If so, purchasing cruise cover from Avanti Travel Insurance will mean that you have the best travel insurance policy to cover all of your cruising needs.

Specialist cruise cover

Whenever you organise a trip, travel insurance should be an essential part of the booking process. This is especially true with cruise holidays, with some cruise operators such as P&O Cruises making travel insurance mandatory. Most other cruise operators, as well as the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, strongly recommend that travel insurance is taken out before departure.

If you are taken ill on a cruise ship you could potentially incur huge medical bills if, for example, you had to be transferred to the mainland, or even repatriated by helicopter. However you can enjoy cruising the seas with the peace of mind that our specialist cruise covers you for £10 million medical expenses and repatriation.
