US-based travel insurance comparison site Squaremouth has shared three questions travellers should ask themselves before buying travel insurance for a cruise.
First off, Squaremouth advises travellers with specific concerns to compare the insurance offered through their cruise line to that of a third-party. It says that this will help ensure they get the coverage they need for the lowest price. “Third-party travel insurance is often more comprehensive compared to what’s offered through the cruise line, which may limit benefit amounts or remove coverage altogether,” it states. Squaremouth also reminds travellers that while cruise line coverage may cover trip cancellation, it will often only cover flights and hotel accommodations booked through the cruise provider.
