Fact checked
warningFinally, some good news! Domestic travel is picking up, so some insurers have started offering cover again 🦘 Just remember, you won't be covered for any pandemic related claims if you do take out domestic travel insurance.

1Cover is an Australian-based travel insurance intermediary, which means they provide travel insurance solutions as an authorised representative of Lloyd's, one of the world's largest insurance groups. 1Cover prides itself on providing a range of affordable travel insurance products that cater to the different needs of travellers taking domestic and international trips.

Oops! We don't have any 1Cover travel insurance discounts available right now, however you might want to check out other travel insurance offers on finder.

      Hi Judy,

      Thanks for you question. Unfortunately, is a comparison service and not an insurer. However, we do have a page that is dedicated to the topic of cruise travel insurance. On it you will find useful information on the topic of cruise insurance, along with a list of insurers from our panel that provide cruise cover.

      If you we specifically asking about 1Cover, the answer is yes. 1Cover do provide cruise insurance.

      I hope this was helpful,

    Mum and Dad travelled about twice a year, Dad is 80 with pre-existing condition, but in good health, mum is 74 also in good health.
    I have always bought their travel insurance, though with their age, there is no annual policy..
    Can you offer another solution?

      Hello Amanda,
      thanks for the question.

      There are some insurance providers who provide travel insurance to over 80s, although these may come with higher excesses. I’d recommend directly calling a few providers, or carrying out a quick internet search, and then contacting some of the providers you find.

      I hope this helps,
