      Hi Tammy,

      Thanks for your question. finder.com.au is a comparison service and we are not permitted to provide personalised financial advice. There is no one “best insurance” as everyone’s needs are different. You may find our cruise travel insurance page useful as it displays the travel insurance brands in our panel that either cover cruise as standard or offer an additional cruise option.

      I hope this was helpful,
      Richard

    Hi,

    I am looking for travel insurance that will cover my golf clubs as well, more than $1000 – they are worth around $3000

      HI James,

      Thanks for your question. There are various policies that provide cover for expensive items. For example, if you went with Travel Insurance Direct, if you were unable to get cover under a standard policy, for additional premium you would be able to get cover for you gold clubs. Many insurers will allow you to purchase extra cover.

      I hope this was helpful,
