Everything you need to know about cruise travel insurance
Australians love to cruise. A whopping 1.3 million Aussies boarded a cruise in 2017 and we’re expected to break through the 2 million mark by 2020. This places us as the second fastest growing cruising country in the world.1
Cruising can be a spectacular way to see the world or even just explore your own country in new, exciting ways. Whether you’re voyaging through the crystal-clear waters of the South Pacific, meandering through the Mediterranean or exploring Australia’s West Coast, cruise holidays can offer everything from total relaxation to action-packed adventure.
However, before you set sail into the sunset, you need to make sure you have the right travel insurance that covers you for cruises.
