Book Cruise Travel Insurance for your next holiday.

*Up to £65k cancellation cover


Cruise travel insurance is a specific policy that covers the activities and risks more likely to be associated with a cruise holiday. This may include cover for missed port departures and cabin confinement which would not be included in most standard travel insurance packages.

Whether you are looking to purchase cover for your whole family, for seniors, or simply enough cover to enjoy a bit of scuba diving with your partner whilst you're away, it's important to plan ahead and buy the right travel insurance for your particular needs. At Holiday Extras, we offer dedicated cruise insurance policies to help ensure you have a tranquil, stress-free time at sea.
