Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection Launches New Cruise Product

STEVENS POINT, Wis.–()–Berkshire
Hathaway Travel Protection
(BHTP), a leading provider of travel
insurance, today announced the launch of a new product, WaveCare,
which provides travel insurance specifically tailored for 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.”

Specifically, WaveCare
provides:

  • Up to $750,000 in medical evacuation coverage, BHTP’s highest limit
  • Up to $75,000 in emergency travel medical insurance
  • A fixed benefit of $500 when the traveler is confined on board for
    more than five hours because the cruise ship is disabled
  • Comprehensive trip cancellation, interruption, delay, missed
    connection, and baggage protection
  • A pre-existing condition waiver when insurance is purchased within 15
    days of the initial trip deposit date
  • 24/7 global travel assistance

BHTP has also announced enhancements to its industry-first fixed benefit
insurance product for air travelers, AirCare(R).
Starting at only $26 for domestic and international round-trip flights, AirCare
now covers late night delays and flight diversions as well as flight
cancellations, flight departure delays, tarmac delays, missed
connections, lost baggage, and baggage delays. Travel insurance fixed
benefits ensure faster claims payment – no receipts necessary.
