Many people take to the sea for their holidays, and for some it may be the trip of a lifetime. However, you may find that a standard travel insurance policy doesn't really give you the level of you need for a cruise. At Essential Travel you can add cruise insurance cover to your policy to give you peace of mind while at sea.
Please note: Our travel insurance policies with cruise cover last for a maximum of 45 days. If the duration of your cruise goes over this length then you will not be covered after the 45th day.
Don't worry about any illnesses or injuries you might pickup abroad. As our cruise cover is an addition to a standard single or annual trip policy, you can relax in the knowledge that you're extensively covered from the day you book with Essential Travel to the day you return from your cruise.
You'll be covered to do over 100 sports and activities for FREE with the option to add additional cover for those riskier activities, once you get a quote.
You can customise your policy to suit your holiday with the choice of 4 cover levels and 4 areas of cover so that you only pay for the cover you need. You can also add extra protection for pre-existing medical conditions, sports, golf, cruises, business and weddings if you need it.
At Essential Travel we can also get you the best selection and cheapest prices for UK port parking, ideal for cruises leaving from the south of England.

You can customise your policy further with pre-existing medical condition cover, sports and a number of other specialist add-ons.
If you have a pre-existing medical condition it's vital that you declare it or you could invalidate your entire policy. Insurers don't like to think that you've hidden things from them and you may be surprised to find out that many common medical conditions such as allergies can be added without any additional cost. What's more, you even have the option to declare a condition but then exclude it from your policy. What this means is that you've told your insurer about your condition but decided not to cover it, so you will be covered medically for anything unrelated to that condition.
A decent policy will include cover for many sporty or adventure activities as standard. However the more adventurous or dangerous the activity, like winter sports, the more likely it is that you will need to purchase additional sports insurance. You can customise your policy further a number of other specialist add-ons.
Add Winter Sports to your Single, Annual or Backpacker policy you can take part in over 26 x sports and be covered for:
Medical: you will be covered for emergency medical expenses that occur should you have an accident and require medical attention including cover for mountain rescue, helicopter rescue costs and repatriation
