Does Webjet travel insurance cover cruises?

Webjet offers an add-on insurance package called Cruise Cover. This means you'll be covered for all of the standard cruising issues such as;

  • Onboard medical and dental cover
  • Ship to shore medical cover
  • Sea sickness cover
  • Cabin confinement
  • Missed port
  • Missed shore excursions

Does Webjet cover pre-existing medical conditions?

Webjet automatically includes some pre-existing medical conditions - including epilepsy, asthma, and allergies. However, you'll only be covered if the condition hasn't flared up recently.

You can also request to have your medical condition assessed by Webjet if you'd like your insurance to cover it. You'll have to do a quick online assessment, but it could give you peace of mind that you'll be covered if your condition flares up.

However, Webjet makes it very clear that there are some pre-existing medical conditions that it won't cover under any circumstance. These include any terminal illness and alcoholism or addiction.

Are there add-ons available?

Yes. Webjet offers a range of add-on options, so you can create a travel insurance policy which meets your needs and gives you peace of mind.

Cruise coverAdditional benefits for missed ports, seasickness, cabin confinement, and more.
Increased luggage item coverIncrease the item limit, so you can claim the full value if one of your expensive items is lost, damaged or stolen.
Adventure activities coverCover for riskier activities, including outdoor rock climbing, skydiving, and trekking more challenging routes.
Snow sports coverCover for skiing and snowboarding - including injuries on the slopes, stolen equipment, and lost lift passes.
Motorcycle/moped riding coverCover if you're riding a motorcycle - including injuries as a rider or pillion, and any damages you might cause.
Existing medical conditionsSubmit an online health assessment and have your pre-existing medical conditions considered and covered by Webjet.
PregnancyIf you've ever had pregnancy complications, are expecting a multiple birth, or your baby was conceived with medical help, you'll only be covered if you opt for the pregnancy add-on.

What's not covered by Webjet

All travel insurers have some exclusions – and they're usually pretty similar – but it's still important to read your PDS carefully. Here are a few key things Webjet won't cover you for:

  • Consequential claims, like loss of enjoyment
  • Any claims that were due to recklessness
  • Any illegal or malicious act by you
  • If you are not honest and open when lodging your claim
  • Elective medical or dental treatment
  • Body modification, including tattoos and piercings
  • If authorities confiscate or destroy your property
  • If you're travelling against the advice of a medical professional
  • Extreme sports or very high risk activities
  • Self harm, suicide, or drug and alcohol abuse
  • Claims related to war, riots or strikes
  • Riding a motorbike or scooter without a helmet or suitable licence

⚠️ This list is not exhaustive, so always read your PDS before buying a policy or contact the insurer directly if you have any questions.
