When should I buy trip cancellation insurance?
Many travel insurance coverages require you to purchase your plan within a specified number of days (usually 10-14) of making that initial trip deposit if the coverage is to be in effect. In fact, buying travel insurance as soon as possible is essential in avoiding some common insurance ‘loopholes’.
Can I buy travel insurance after final payment?
Yes, you may get any of our Trip Cancellation & Trip Interruption Travel Insurance plans before or after you pay in full. The latest date you may buy a policy is the day before you leave. All the other coverages start after you depart on your trip.
How much does trip cancellation insurance cost?
In general, you should expect a plan will cost anywhere from 4%-10% of your total pre-paid, nonrefundable trip cost. For example, if you purchased a trip with a total cost of $5,000, travel insurance policies available to you will likely range in price from $250-$500, depending on variables.
How far in advance should I buy trip insurance?
WHEN SHOULD I BUY TRAVEL INSURANCE? The best time to buy travel insurance is within 15 days of making the first deposit on your trip, since buying early can often qualify you for bonus coverages. However, many plans let you buy coverage up until the day before you leave.
