If you're planning a cruise holiday, we have a specialist policy extension to ensure you are fully covered which includes a range of cruise specific benefits. The cruise extension must be added to your policy if you're planning a cruise* on both single and annual multi-trip policies.
Our single trip cruise policies will cover trips up to 365 days in duration, to both European and Worldwide destinations. The available trip duration may vary depending on age.
If you have multiple trips planned, including a cruise, our annual multi-trip policies might be the best option for you. They will cover you for unlimited travel up to 31 days per trip, or 45 days if the Trip Extension is also selected from our policy options.
Adding the cruise extension
The cruise extension must be added to any travel insurance policy intended to cover a cruise. The extension can be selected on the options page during the quotation process or if you already have a Freedom policy and wish to add the cruise extension, you can do so by phoning us on 01223 446 914.

Specialist travel insurance designed for cruises
We are specialists with over 17 years of experience and offer a tailored cruise policy with benefits such as cabin confinement, missed port departure and cruise itinerary change
You can apply here online or over the telephone; it’s quick, simple and totally confidential. To provide you with a quote, you’ll need to let us know where you are travelling to, and for how long. Make sure to declare all your pre-existing medical conditions for all travellers.
You will be guided through a medical screening questionnaire, where a series of relevant questions will be asked to assess your health and each individual condition. These questions should be answered accurately and to the best of your knowledge.
You will then be presented with available policy options at which point you will need to select the cruise extension for your Freedom policy to cover cruising.
Adding the cruise extension
If you're travelling on a cruise, it's important that you always select the cruise extension on our options page. If necessary, this can be added to your cover by contacting us on 01223 446 914
Cover your whole trip
You need to cover your whole trip, taking into account the day that you arrive back in the UK
On a single trip we are able to rate on the country that you are travelling to, which enable us to offer a fairer price
"Excellent company and great service. I have used Freedom for many years. Peace of mind that we are covered for medical conditions and can enjoy our holiday. Very easy to use, online quotes and staff on the phones are very helpful, thanks."
Generally, Freedom is unable to offer cover for people on a waiting list for surgery but there are exceptions to the rule. Talk to the Freedom Call Centre on 01223 446 914 where we can look if there are any options available , it may be that we can find you a policy that excludes cover for the medical condition relating to the pending surgery.
Should your pre-existing medical conditions, directly or indirectly disrupt your holiday plans, maybe causing you to cancel or possibly resulting in emergency medical treatment abroad, providing you have told us about your medical conditions and cover has been agreed, you will be able to recover your expenses (excesses may apply).
