Cruise Cover - Holiday Insurance

Our Leisure Guard products have been designed with competitive rates exclusively for Money Saving Expert (MSE) customers

Leisure Guard provides travel insurance cover for a wide range of situations. One of the most common questions we are asked is, “Does your company provide coverage options for cruises?”

We are very happy to tell you that all our Leisure Guard policies include cruise travel insurance at no additional cost.

When you are embarking on a cruise, it is important to seek out specialised coverage, as cruising carries its own set of unique concerns and potential pitfalls that other travellers may not experience. Cruise holiday plans are particularly vulnerable around the ship’s scheduled departure from one of the ports.

On a regular holiday, a delayed flight can lead to minor setbacks and annoyances. But on a cruise holiday, even the slightest delay can lead to you missing the ship’s scheduled departure—which could in turn see you missing out on an entire leg of the voyage.

Likewise, healthcare considerations are more important when you are out at sea. Cruise liners are equipped with a sick bay and medical staff. However, serious medical emergencies will need to be handled on shore. This could require medical evacuation from the ship to the nearest hospital. The right cruise cover ensures that these expenses are taken care of should an emergency arise.

A Wide Range of Cruise Travel Insurance

Our cruise holiday insurance includes the same comprehensive level of coverage featured in all of our travel policies. The following are amongst the core benefits offered:

  • Medical expenses for medical emergency and repatriation (up to £20,000,000)
  • Trip cancellation, curtailment and interruption (up to £10,000)
  • Departure assistance and missed connections (up to £1,000)
  • Personal luggage (up to £3,000)

How Much Does Cruise Travel Insurance Cost?

The potential pay-outs are substantial, especially when compared with the modest premiums attached to our travel insurance policies. No one strikes out on holiday hoping that problems are going to occur. But in the event that they do, it is reassuring to know that you and your valuables are all protected.

Most cruises come off without any complications at all. Furthermore, several cruise liners have made a good show recently of compensating cruisers for interruptions and cancellations when the cruise company is clearly to blame. However, there a host of unforeseen issues—often personal in nature—that can lead to last-minute cancellations and complications. Taking out affordable coverage ahead of time ensures issues like this don’t have the power to ruin your holiday.

Our coverage is highly flexible. If you require increased coverage for a trip duration beyond 31 days, we can extend this to 45, 62 or even 92 days. Please feel free to call our UK based team on 0333 300 2160 with any enquiries, or email us at
