Company Launches Travel Insurance Specifically Designed for Cruises

Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection (BHTP) has launched a new travel insurance product that is specifically designed for cruises and the needs of cruise travelers.

Called WaveCare, this is a comprehensive solution for cruisers and what they need most including higher medical and evacuation coverage.

Specifically, WaveCare provides:

  • Up to $750,000 in medical evacuation coverage, BHTP’s highest limits
  • Up to $75,000 in emergency travel medical insurance
  • A fixed benefit of $500 when the traveler is confined on board for more than five hours because the cruise ship is disabled
  • Comprehensive trip cancellation, interruption, delay, missed connection, and baggage protection
  • A pre-existing condition waiver when insurance is purchased within 15 days of the initial trip deposit date
  • 24/7 global travel assistance

BHTP has also announced enhancements to its industry-first fixed benefit insurance product for air travelers, AirCare. Starting at only $26 for domestic and international round-trip flights, AirCare now covers late night delays and flight diversions as well as flight cancellations, flight departure delays, tarmac delays, missed connections, lost baggage, and baggage delays. Travel insurance fixed benefits ensure faster claims payment – no receipts necessary.
