Travel Insurance for cruising around Australia
If you are going on a cruise which is only in Australian waters or calling into ports in Australia, you may still require a policy which includes medical cover whilst you are on board the ship (check with your cruise provider) as the medical providers are not registered with Medicare. You will therefore need to select Australian Cruise as your country of destination. By selecting Australian Cruise as a destination means you will be offered the international policy options and benefits. This will then allow us to give you the medical and evacuation benefit whilst at sea but not if You go to a medical provider while in port in Australia.
While we do offer a domestic policy, this coverage is not suitable for cruises. The Domestic policy does not include medical coverage as most Australians already hold medical coverage. We are a general insurer and therefore are prevented from paying any medical costs in Australia.
@Children & grandchildren aged 25 & under go for free – provided they are financially dependent on their parents, not working full time, do not require a medical assessment and are travelling with you the whole time
