Can I book travel insurance through Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines?
Having appropriate cruise insurance cover is a requirement for booking your holiday with us. Knowing you have comprehensive cover means you can relax and concentrate on planning the rest of your holiday. To help, we’ve provided three top tips for organising your cover.
TIP ONE: Ensure you have the right cover.
To avoid any pitfalls it’s best to ensure your cover is specific to cruise holidays. Also, declaring all pre-existing medical conditions to your insurer will reduce your potential for financial consequences.
TIP TWO : Avoid potential loopholes
It is tempting to save money and opt for the cheapest holiday insurance. However, many policies have loopholes that will not provide cover for the exact circumstance in the claim. Be sure to investigate what’s covered in your policy.
TIP THREE: Purchase your cover early
We advise you to get insurance organised for your forthcoming cruise as soon as you have booked. This will give you peace of mind that you are covered and protect your non-refundable deposit.

Your policy must include cover pre-departure in case you test positive for Covid-19 and are unable to board the vessel and have to travel home in a Covid safe car (Covid Cancellation & Curtailment Cover). In addition, the policy must include cover after departure to ensure that you are fully covered if you have to disembark the vessel at a port of call for medical treatment, isolation and travel back to your home (Covid Medical & Repatriation Cover).
