Trip Insurance Issue


Recommended Posts

Hi all. I have gotten quotes on Insuremytrip.com which I typically use for my cruises/airfare. However when selecting the cruise line Crystal is not on the list of cruise lines.  I tried this with Nationwide and Berkshire. I chatted the help desk and they say it isn't a covered cruise line and to pick another policy. I tried this and they don't appear on the list. Could Crystal possibly be under another name?

Which insurance companies do you use? 

Thanks!

Hello we booked with Crystal for the insurance which is Allianz insurance. I also always book with a credit card that has travel insurance coverage so we are double covered. 

Hope this helps

At this time Cruise Critic has a special forum Q&A: Cruise Insurance with the TripInsuranceStore.com June 2021 for questions such as yours. Perhaps Steve will be able to help you there. He will be here through the months of June & July 2021.

 

Happy sails,

Just for what it is worth.  I don’t know if any travellers are from Canada but if you are please do a thorough check of your travel insurance.  My policy does not cover Covid related issues as the Canadian Government continues to stress no international travel unless essential.  A separate Covid rider is required if you elect to travel outside of Canada.  Until Canada relaxes their travel warning this will be the case.  I don’t think the US has this edict anymore, but the question should be asked when buying the insurance.

Good advice. If I may, I would like to add that one’s understanding of the policy (credit card policies also)should be requested and confirmed in writing. 

 

 We do not require a separate Covid rider for our travel insurance policy in Canada because the company we use does cover Covid in their latest general policy for emergency medical coverage regardless of Government travel advisories.  There are some limitations for Covid related trip cancellation/delay.

Look at Travel Insured International.  They have excellent plans available which include medical coverage.  All trip protection is not created equal - be sure to read the entire policy, it will be worth your time if you need to file a claim.  Do not rely on your travel agent to do it for you!

Someone had posted a referral to an agent which I assume was taken down. Anyway I ended up calling them and they got me a good plan even cheaper then what I was looking at online thanks 😀

Hello everyone. A question about Trawick. Do their policies include international cruising? I'm a UK resident and because of a government advisory, we cannot get cruise insurance. I've just stumbled upon Trawick and noticed that they offer insurance for non US residents and I'm hoping that this could be the workaround I've been looking for 🙏

Probably someone on the insurance or UK threads could assist and give you direction. I would recommend that you contact the company directly.   Request their policy as regards non-US residents, whether the policy is applicable regardless of Covid-19 government advisories in the policy holder’s country of residence and that you have coverage for land, sea and air ( not only international cruising)  IN WRITING.   Any written confirmation should clearly indicate their policies for emergency medical, trip interruption and trip cancellation for Covid-19.

Some info for UK residents - clearly not advice but my finding from a few calls and emails. Cedartree seem to offer policies underwritten by AXA. They say the key driver on their policy is the country FCDO advise and not the cruise specific advice.

Also looks like Cover For You able to assist UK cruisers.

Can I ask what insurance you used, as an Ontarian I am not sure what to look up other than my Sunlife which covers travel health and my credit card, I am not travelling until June 2022, but would like to be prepared 🙂

Johnson/Medoc….www.Johnson.ca

 

note:   you would need to confirm but I do not think they cover trip interruption if you are declined boarding because of a pre-embarkation positive Covid test

 

Medoc Travel Insurance will cover medical emergencies for COVID-19 to the same extent as any other illness or injury while travelling outside your province of residence (as long as this was not pre-existing prior to departure). This is applicable regardless of your mode of travel be it by land, sea or air. 

 Trip Cancellation & Trip Interruption coverage for anything COVID-19 related would not be covered. Other insured risks in the policy for Trip Cancellation, Trip Interruption remain covered.

It might be useful to gather responses from people who have actually collected on policies instead of just bought them.  It's easy to buy insurance, but you can learn the hard way the insurance company has no intention of paying like I did.  Do not use AIG Travel Guard.  They won't pay.  Look them up on BBB to see the horror stories.

They don't pay out for claims that were not covered. That also covers 99% of the bad reviews on BBB.
