Travel Insurance

Make sure you and your loved ones are protected in the event of injury, loss or damage by taking out travel insurance prior to your expedition. Some expedition cruise lines even make it a condition of travel that you hold a suitable travel insurance prior to boarding the ship. At Expedition Cruise Specialists we can assist you with a policy provided by nib, who themselves have many years experience helping expedition travellers in their hour of need.

nib offer a number of policy options, from Essentials coverage through to the Comprehensive policy for a more premium cover. 







Booking your cruise through Expedition Cruise Specialists? Call our team on 1800 90 20 80 to have your nib travel insurance policy issued and SAVE 20% off normal premiums.


Please note; if you are insuring a Kimberley Cruise please use 'Australian Waters' as the Destination for the quote as this provides coverage for Remote Medical Evacuation.



Quite often, we think of travel insurance as an unnecessary expense, until something goes wrong...

Did you know that an overnight hospital stay in a foreign country can cost in excess of $10,000? Or that if you require medical repatriation to your home country the bill can run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars? It's when unforeseen emergencies like this occur that your travel insurance will be there to help, and save you from the massive bills.  And they can also help if your luggage gets lost, or your flight cancelled. 

Important note: While some credit cards come with a travel insurance feature, it's really important to understand what your credit card covers you for in the event of an emergency. Quite often, credit card-based insurance provides lower coverage, limited provisions and the requirement to pay for a significant percentage of your holiday on that card prior to your insurance being activated. In many cases, the extra peace of mind in obtaining coverage from nib more than makes up for the additional expense.
