Proposed tax on cruise passengers and hotel stays quashed
More and more of Globelink’s clients are turning to cruises, and we’re delighted to cover them under the terms of our standard travel insurance policy.
The popularity of cruises shouldn’t come as a surprise when you consider the remarkable value they offer, with accommodation, meals and entertainment all included in the package. And all of that with a minimum of packing, as yet another exciting destination sails into view.
Cruises were once seen as the preserve of mature travellers who liked to dress for dinner every night. These days, the average passenger is under 55 and there are almost as many cruise types as there are kinds of passenger. Adult-only cruises offer the ultimate in sophisticated getaways. Multi-generation cruises cater for all the family, from Playstation-mad children with energy to burn, through to grandads who want to sharpen up their putting skills, or get expert tuition on how to work their iPads.
Yet even with the best planning the unexpected can happen. A missed transfer, and the ship leaves without you. A cruise that has to be cut short when a close relative falls ill back home. Wise travellers take out travel insurance cover, but even they can be caught out. Unlike Globelink, some insurers exclude cruises from their standard travel insurance policies – which means you could end up paying a hefty premium for adequate coverage before you go.
Remember, if you live in Spain your travel insurance might be invalid if it does not cover the entire duration of your return trip, from the date you leave Spain until the date you arrive back in Spain.
