It’s a fact that sometimes travel insurance is the last thing on your mind when you are preparing to take a trip. We know this because we receive lots of calls from customers asking about insurance when they have already started their journey. That’s why we offer Already Travelling insurance for people who have forgotten to take out cover before they leave home, or are already abroad and their insurance will expire before they come home. We can even offer cover when parents call us to arrange cover for their young adult children because they forgot to get insurance before they went travelling!
It’s a wise move to take out cover, even after you have started your trip, because mishaps while travelling can be expensive and distressing and travel insurance can add peace of mind and help cover costs.
You can now buy an Already Travelling policy on-line in minutes from our website by selecting ‘Already Travelling’ as your policy type. We offer cover as long as you are normally resident in the UK or an EEA Country, even if you have already started your trip. Just as long as you accept that you cannot claim on the policy for anything that has already happened - for example, if you lost your camera yesterday, or feel ill already, you can’t take out this insurance and then make a claim for that.
We provide between £5,000,000 and £10,000,000 of emergency medical expenses depending on the policy option you chose and over 60 adventure activities are covered for free.
There is an anti-fraud measure built into the policy whereby you cannot claim for anything for 48 hours after you have purchased the policy. However, new claims requiring inpatient treatment which can be independently verified, can be made within the first 48 hours.
So get covered, or get those you care about covered, even if the trip has already started!
