While technically you can purchase a travel protection plan as late as up to the day before you leave, there are many reasons why purchasing a plan early is the way to go. We suggest that you purchase a protection plan as soon as you pay your first initial payment towards your planned trip!
The most important aspect to understand before you purchase is what determines the trip deposit date. Once a traveler makes the first initial payment for a planned trip, that date becomes the initial trip deposit date. Even if you have not yet made plans or paid for all of the expenses that you will be paying for the entire trip, you are still able to cover all additional costs for items such as plane tickets and tours even after you make your first initial plan payment. It is always better to purchase a protection plan and then add any expenses at a later time.
Trip Cancellation benefits begin protecting travelers for all of the covered reasons the day directly after the plan has been purchased which ensures a much greater chance that you won’t lose any of your investments if something does in fact happen. There are also additional features of travel protection such as Cancel for Any Reason Coverage and Pre-existing Conditions Waivers that require time-specific requirements in order for coverage to be considered effective. It is also important to purchase a plan at the initial trip deposit to cover your pre-paid costs for things out of your control such as, financial default, hurricane and weather disruptions, and cancel for work reasons.
Getting into the habit of purchasing a travel protection plan the moment after your first trip payment is the best way to ensure you will be getting the most from your coverage!
