Cruise-Goers Can Stay Protected with Exclusive Travel Protection Plan
SANTA CLARA, CA (February 23, 2018) -- With cruise travel growing significantly year over year, VisitorsCoverage has created an exclusive travel protection product with handpicked travel insurance benefits to meet this demand. SafeCruiseSM is a trip protection plan that is designed to provide cruise-goers coverage for the most common mishaps related to this type of sea-bound sojourn.
From Canada to the Caribbean, Madrid to the Mediterranean, cruise travel is experiencing a boom. With millennials taking notice and baby boomers opting for convenience-based vacations, cruise travel has seen a more than 20 percent increase in passenger numbers since 2012. According to The Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association, an estimated 27.2 million people worldwide took a cruise in 2018, and with interest consistently growing each year, more vacationers than ever are expected to set sail in 2019.
Cruise travel can pose unique financial and medical risks that not all travel protection plans can cover, so VisitorsCoverage, in partnership with International Medical Group (IMG), handpicked benefits such as emergency medical evacuation, accident and sickness medical expense and trip interruption coverages to maximize meaningful coverage for cruise-goers.
Additionally, the plan can offer valuable Cancel For Any Reason coverage, which can reimburse up to 75 percent of non-refundable trip costs if the insured needs to cancel for a non-covered reason. This benefit allows for more flexibility and simplifies the decision-making process for travelers.
The SafeCruise plan is filling a gap in the travel insurance industry to meet the demands from an increase in cruise travel being seen worldwide," said VisitorsCoverage CEO Rajeev Shrivastava. With the creation of this exclusive travel protection plan, we are continuing our commitment to simplifying travel protection for travelers on a global scale.
"We are excited to work with VisitorsCoverage Inc. on SafeCruiseSM," said IMGs Vice President of International Sales, Amanda Winkle.
