Holiday Extras are usually very good, used them before as I have medical conditions that I have to disclose to be fully covered and they've looked after me well in the past, not ridiculous prices either like you can get with certain companies.

does anyone know how good insurance with your bank is I have standard insurance with my bank but I am not sure how good it is for cruising. its kind of putting me off because I don't want to be taken ill onboard and have to pay out the eyeballs for it.

I have got a policy with my bank but dose not cover any medical conditions.  I tried the "Holiday Extras" really impressed the prices was the best we had been given so have gone with them :)

Always check insurance policies before you buy,not when you come to make a claim.Looking at the recent floods and the damaged caused to property and belongings, you have to wonder " are they covered and to what extent " Medical costs on board ships and abroad in other countries can be very expensive, cancelling when you,ve paid up.Would £8 for 3 days cover that ?? It doesnt always happen to the other guy, sometimes you are the other guy. Food for thought

We have travel insurance through our bank (lloydsTSB) and so long as you declare medical conditions prior to going on holiday you are covered (upto 70 years of age) we also pay £40 a year to cover the excess, which all companies impose on claims/

I use a company named Waltham Travel Insurance. Have used them for a number of years and last year had to make a claim for a camera that was smashed. Settled within 14 days. Excellent service. Make sure that any policy you take out covers you for cruising and also evacuation from the ship in the case of a medical emergency.Helicopters are expensive!! Many people go for the cheapest option but like other things in life you get what you pay for.
