APRIL Travel Protection has launched a new APRIL Cruise plan. Available on InsureMyTrip.com, the insurance package covers travelers who cannot make their departure because of a flight delay and allows them to wait longer to purchase and still receive a Pre-Existing Conditions Medical Waiver.

Should flight troubles cause a traveler to miss their ship, the APRIL Cruise plan will pay for the enrollee to board at the next available stop and will cover any missed ports of call. Additionally, the APRIL insurance policy will offer a Pre-Existing Conditions Medical Waiver to any traveler who purchases within a day of the last cruise payment. Other covered events include trip interruption, baggage loss, baggage delay, medical treatment and medical evacuation.

The APRIL Cruise plan has no age limits and is available for trips of up to 90 days. Travelers can upgrade their policy to increase the amount for missed departures and baggage, to add a Cancel For Any Reason clause and to protect against pre- or post-cruise rental car damage.

Covered events include injury, sickness, severe weather, natural disasters, terrorism, strikes, supplier default and more. Also like APRIL’s other plans, the company allows customers to contact them through Skype, texting and live chat.
