Travel Insurance Study Reveals Top Cruise Concerns

Published

on

InsureMyTrip recently announced the results of its travel survey of 800 U.S. respondents. The poll reveals that a vast majority of cruisers have experienced some kind of travel disruption during a trip. The most common frustrations included cruise itinerary changes and medical issues. Health reasons also led the majority of travel insurance claims with travelers listing “medical care during a trip” as a top issue.

“These results show that the majority of cruisers will experience some kind of travel inconvenience that is completely out of their control,” said CEO Jim Grace of InsureMyTrip. “Cruisers also clearly share unique healthcare concerns during a voyage; with medical issues resulting in many insurance claims. Despite these issues, most travelers appear to be pleased with their overall cruise experience and look forward to cruise vacations.”
