Travel Insurance


There’s nothing like a cruise to feed the soul and broaden the mind. And nothing like the unexpected to put a dampener on your plans.

With nearly thirty years of experience and more than 2.2 million journeys every year, Cover-More knows what travellers need. That’s why P&O Cruises recommends Cover-More Travel Insurance.

Ensure you are covered for general medical expenses overseas, existing medical conditions, hospitalisation and medical evacuations.

If you plan on participating in sports such as scuba diving or parasailing, ensure your policy covers these activities.

International travel insurance is recommended on Australian coastal cruises, as your cruise is outside the scope of the New Zealand Health system.

Be aware when organising your insurance that uninsured travellers (or their families) are held personally liable for cancellation, medical and associated costs incurred at any time whether before the cruise, on board or overseas. Hospitalisation costs on board or outside of the country and medical evacuation costs are very expensive and are not covered by Medicare or private health insurance. Daily hospital bills can cost as much as AUD 5,000 per day. All consultations, treatments and medications are charged at private rates.

If something goes wrong, you want expert help fast so you can keep travelling.
