    For questions regarding coverage, services or to file a claim please call 1.866.370.0414

    Unexpected events can occur before you depart or while you’re on your cruise that may leave you with cancelled plans, lost luggage or medical expenses you weren’t anticipating. The Viking Travel Protection plan is an affordable, broad package of benefits and non insurance that can provide coverage for such unexpected events.

    Why choose the Viking Travel Protection plan?

    1. It’s now 10 p.m. and the flight that was supposed to take you to your port of embarkation has been delayed for hours. Who can assist you with finding a new flight to catch up with your cruise?
    2. Your wife becomes seriously ill while onboard the ship and you need immediate medical attention at a hospital. Who can get you evacuated off the ship and to the hospital?
    3. Your cruise has just disembarked when you suddenly realize your insulin bag is nowhere to be found. You need help to have an emergency prescription filled, along with help finding your lost bag. Who do you call?
    4. You arrive at the airport after having disembarked your cruise of a lifetime when you realize your passport and wallet are nowhere to be found. Where do you turn for an emergency cash wire transfer, and how will you get your passport replaced?
    5. You arrive in Prague for your Danube cruise and unfortunately, your luggage is nowhere to be found. Who will help you find it? If it's delayed, who will cover your necessities? If it's stolen, who will reimburse the loss?
    6. While exploring local shops at a port of call, you trip and hear a cracking noise in your ankle. Who can help you find a physician to have it examined? Who will cover the expense since many medical insurance plans may not travel with you outside the U.S.?
