Get the Best Price for Your Holiday with Cruiseabout Cover

Posted May 15th, 2016

There’s nothing worse than carefully planning your cruise holiday and booking well in advance, only to see it go on sale days before you embark. That’s where Cruiseabout Cover can save the day.

For only $49 a person ($99 for cruises of 12 nights or more), you can be refunded up to $1,000 if the price of your cruise drops, even up to 24 hours before you set sail. And you can make penalty-free Cruiseabout cancellations, saving $300, and Cruiseabout changes, saving $75 per change. Supplier fees may still apply.

Andrea Meldrum, manager of Cruiseabout at Golden Grove in South Australia, says one of the biggest questions in travel is: Should I book now or should I wait? Cruiseabout Cover’s price-drop protection takes away the guesswork.

“It’s peace of mind that they can book now and get the cabin they want, and not feel like they’re being penalised by getting in early,” she says.

For example, one of her clients booked an inside cabin on a 10-night South Pacific cruise with Carnival , and then saw it advertised at a cheaper rate during a 72-hour Carnival sale.

“If they went to an inside cabin (at the new price), they would have saved about $1,200,” Andrea says. “But because they were saving so much already, they decided they would upgrade the cabin.”

Her ecstatic client ended up with an ocean-view cabin and $728 in his pocket.

Andrea does caution, however, that a cheaper fare may not always include your original dining selections or other inclusions. A Cruiseabout agent can help you navigate which is a better deal when inclusions are taken into account.

Bear in mind that the price-drop guarantee can be used only once before you sail, but “it doesn’t matter whether you do it now or the day before you sail, you’ll get the best price for your holiday”.

Cruiseabout Cover also means that if you have to cancel your cruise, your refund will be processed within 24 hours, instead of the usual 10 to 15 days.

And the Cruiseabout difference means complimentary customer care, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with Australian phone support; visa and passport checks; shore excursions booking assistance; and assistance with Cruise Personaliser.

Travel for me is about conversations and connections. There’s nothing like setting foot in a new land and meeting people a world apart. From talking to North Sea fishermen in Norway’s Lofoten Islands to breakfast chat at a B&B in my own back yard, there’s always a story to share and a tale to tell.
