Introducing WaveCare, cruise-specific travel insurance

Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection, a leading provider of travel insurance, introduced WaveCare, specifically tailored to the needs of cruise travelers.

'WaveCare is expressly designed for the fastest growing sector of the industry, cruising,' said Dean Sivley, president of Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection. 'Our comprehensive solution provides cruisers with higher medical and evacuation coverage limits for their trip and introduces BHTP’s innovative fixed benefit in the event the cruise is disabled along the way.'

Up to $750,00 in medical evacuation coverage

WaveCare provides up to $750,000 in medical evacuation coverage, BHTP’s highest limits. The policy also offers up to $75,000 in emergency travel medical insurance. There is a fixed benefit of $500 when the traveler is confined on board for more than five hours because the cruise ship is disabled.

Pre-existing condition waiver

Further coverage includes comprehensive trip cancellation, interruption, delay, missed connection and baggage protection. There is a pre-existing condition waiver when the insurance is purchased within 15 days of the initial trip deposit date.

WaveCare also comes with 24/7 global travel assistance.
