Will I need travel insurance?

Yes, it is a condition of the contract that you obtain travel insurance to cover the risk of you needing medical care on board or in a foreign country. Your insurance must include cover for all pre-existing medical conditions and must cover emergency evacuations from the ship, shore hospital medical costs, and repatriation costs. It should have a limit of not less than £2 million. You should ensure that you have adequate travel insurance at time of booking. 

We have chosen Holiday Extras (for UK Citizens only) as our preferred travel insurance provider and Holiday Extras can offer a comprehensive travel insurance policy, that will cover you for cancellation, medical expenses, personal belongings, missed cruise departure, unused shore excursions, cabin confinement and cruse itinerary changes, as well as covering 97% of all customers with pre-existing medical conditions.

Holiday Extras insurance (for UK Citizens only) meets our requirements set out in the terms and conditions of the booking. You'll find further details in our brochure and you can obtain a quote and full terms and conditions via our dedicated Holiday Extras page or by calling 0800 093 3070, quoting reference PAOHX.

If you choose a different insurer you will need to ensure the policy covers you for all medical costs you may incur due to pre-existing conditions or otherwise, as set out above.

You can access further information via the 'Preparing to Go' section of your Cruise Personaliser or My P&O Cruises.

 

What happens if I do not have travel insurance?

You will not be able to travel without travel insurance. Please ensure you can obtain travel insurance before you book your holiday.  It is a condition of the contract that you obtain travel insurance to cover the risk of you needing medical care on board or in a foreign country.
