Cruise Cover*

  • Additional cover for Missed Departure, Missed Port, Cruise Interruption and Evening Dress Hire
  • You are covered if your car breaks down, is involved in a road accident or your train breaks down causing you to miss your departure.

If you're about to go on a voyage somewhere around the globe, cruise cover may not be the first thing on your top of mind. After all, if you're going to enjoy the experience of a lifetime, why worry about things that may go wrong?

Not an ordinary holiday, so you don't want ordinary insurance

Remind yourself how much a cruise holiday costs. It's typically more expensive than a standard holiday. A voyage tends to last longer than most holidays too. That's why a cruise holiday carries its own particular risks. 

Don't miss the boat

Have you ever noticed that it's when you're in a hurry that things seem to go wrong? You've got to get to the port in time for your ship's departure. And that's the moment your car chooses to break down or you are involved in an accident which delays you by hours. Perhaps your train is unexpectedly cancelled. We can't make delays any less infuriating but at least we can offer you cover against them happening. So at least you'll be compensated for your troubles.

Lost property needn't be a problem

If your luggage is misplaced or lost, getting it back can be difficult because your ship is constantly on the move. Your Post Office Travel Insurance policy can cover the costs of replacing personal items on your trip. It will even help you replace important documents like your passport if they get lost on voyage.

Cover to suit

Part of the fun of a cruise is dressing up smartly for special occasions. So we also insure you if your evening dress is lost, stolen or damaged.

Sort out your insurance when you sort out your holiday

Don't leave your holiday insurance to the last minute, have it in place the moment your holiday is booked. That way, you'll be covered for unfortunate events that might prevent you from travelling such as unexpected illness, injury or even bereavement.

If your holiday is cancelled, we can help

Some insurance only covers you from the start of your holiday. But our single trip cover protects you from the moment you take out the policy. And our Annual Multi-Trip cover is in place for a whole year, so you can be reassured knowing your holiday is protected from the policy start date.
