I do. You can never predict what's going to happen.
I had a cruise booked and totally paid for. A few months before we were to sail my son fell off a roof and was seriously injured. He was 20 at the time but I didn't think he'd be walking on his own or driving by the time we were due to leave. We had to cancel the cruise. The good news? He made a remarkable recovery. We rebooked the same cruise and went in early April.
It just makes good bottom line sense to purchase travel insurance. I wouldn't book a cruise without it. I've read some very tragic stories here on the boards where the unexpected and out of the blue happened- and no travel insurance was purchased. Unfortunately, the consumer winds up losing.
Travel insurance? Always!
booking soon - 10th anniversary cruise in August....
You bet, and purchase the insurance promptly to waive any pre medical conditions.
A transport from the ship by helicopter or other means can cost $20,000 or more let alone hospital costs. Don't take the chance. The time you say to yourself "it is a waste of money" .. enough said.
