When Should You Buy Travel Insurance?

Time is an important factor when purchasing travel insurance. We recommend purchasing travel insurance at the time you book your trip or soon after. This is important because travel insurance policies include time-sensitive provisions which can broaden your coverage if you purchase the insurance in a timely matter.

In fact, if you purchase travel insurance within 21 days of the date you make the initial payment for your trip, your coverage will provide coverage for bankruptcy or insolvency of your travel supplier, include the waiving of the Pre-Existing Conditions Exclusion, and allows you to qualify for the Cancel for Any Reason Benefit if it is included in your plan.

Remember, purchasing your travel insurance within 21 days of booking your trip will allow you to receive broader coverage at the same price if you purchase with final payment.

If you have any questions about these time-sensitive provisions or travel insurance in general, we can help. Leave a comment with your question below, Tweet us, write on our Facebook timeline or call us at 888-885-7233.
