Some domestic policies cover as much as Unlimited Cancellation benefits and over $15,000 for Luggage.
Insurers policies are all different. Some include cover for cruises automatically, others require the purchase of a cruise “add-on”. Get a cruise insurance quote to find out who covers what.

Comprehensive travel insurance is the most popular kind of travel insurance. It covers a huge range of benefits including medical, cancellation, public liability and luggage cover. Some countries require you to have travel insurance to enter the country or get a visa, which other countries have exorbitant medical systems which leave you with eye-watering bills. That's where travel insurance comes in.
Comprehensive travel insurance covers cancellation, emergency medical, alternative transport expenses, luggage and personal effects that are lost or stolen, and public liability cover. This is opposed to basic or medical-only policies, which only cover your emergency medical expenses incurred overseas.
