FAQs About Cruise Travel Insurance

  • Will Domestic Travel Insurance Cover Me On A Cruise In New Zealand Waters? 
  • No, once your ship leaves port, even if you're cruising New Zealand waters, you’re no longer covered for hospital or medical expenses by Medicare or your private health care provider. If your cruise is in New Zealand waters, you would need to select a Comprehensive policy with Cruise Pack add-on, choosing the New Zealand Cruise region. This includes the benefits of an overseas policy (including medical) as well as the benefits of the Cruise Pack.  

  • Can I Buy A Medical Only Policy For A Domestic Cruise?
  • Our Cruise Pack is not available with the Medical Only policy. For cover while on your cruise, you will need to select a Comprehensive or Frequent Traveller policy.  

  • How Much Is Healthcare On-Board A Cruise? 
  • While on-board a cruise medical costs are quite expensive. Hospital bills can be as much as $5,000 per day. Simple treatments, consultations and medications on board a ship are charged at private rates. This can mean that a doctor’s appointment can be as much as $100. 

  • My Cruise Is Going To Multiple Destinations What Destination Do I Choose? 
  • Please refer to the Cruise Region list above. If you’re going on a cruise, you must select the region/s based on the countries the ship will visit. 
    Travellers on domestic cruises in New Zealand waters should select the New Zealand Cruise region to ensure cover for such things as emergency medical assistance and emergency medical and hospital expenses, cancellation fees or lost deposits, and more.

  • What Happens If I Come Home Early?
  • Your policy covers the full duration of the trip dates stated on your Certificate Of Insurance. There are no refunds should you come home earlier than planned.
