Frequently Asked Questions

What destination do I select when getting a quote if I am spending the same number of days at each port?

When selecting a destination for your travel insurance quote, pick the location where you will spend the most time and choose the listed location nearest to your destination. If you are spending equal time at each port during your cruise, select whichever you are visiting first.

How does travel insurance work?

If something happen during your trip and you need to use your travel insurance, you’ll need to file a claim to be reimbursed. We have a page that explains how to start a claim, a great resource for learning more about the claims process.

Let’s say your baggage is delayed* and you need to buy clothes and toiletries, you would submit a claim to seek reimbursement. Travel insurance comes in handy in scenarios like this.

Oftentimes, travel insurance is offered when buying a cruise, airfare or booking a vacation rental. We encourage customers to pay attention to the fine print when considering insurance provided by travel suppliers. For example, a cruise line’s travel insurance may not pay cash to cover a cancelled or interrupted cruise, but instead offers credit towards a future cruise. If you prefer cash reimbursement, that’s reason to consider purchasing directly from a travel insurance provider instead.

We recommend bringing a print out of your plan documents with you when traveling so if you are affected by a storm and lose power or can’t connect to the internet, you’ll still know what number to call and what instructions to follow.

* Baggage Delay coverage can only be claimed if the delay lasts for the amount of time specified in the Schedule of Benefits

Find the Plan That Fits Your Trip Best

There’s no better way to understand how travel insurance and assistance can help protect you and your trip than reading real life examples from fellow travelers.

When is the best time to get travel insurance?

We suggest you buy a travel insurance plan when you make your first trip payment, like airfare or a cruise. That way you have a long coverage period in case you need to cancel your trip. Later on, you can add coverage to the same plan for your hotel, tours and other pre-paid, non-refundable trip costs. It’s best to contact us to add coverage soon after you make new trip payments to be sure you have coverage for your full trip cost.
