When should I buy my travel insurance?

Allen Last updated:

When you buy your travel insurance is entirely up to you. By buying your single trip travel insurance as soon as you’ve booked your holiday, you should be covered for cancellation in case something goes wrong before you travel.

With a Single Trip Travel Insurance policy, cover for cancellation starts at the time you book the trip or pay the insurance premium, whichever is later. Single Trip policies from Staysure can be bought up to 24 months in advance of your holiday. (Depending on age and medical score)

If you buy an Annual Multi-Trip Travel Insurance policy, cancellation cover starts from the date you choose to start your policy. This will be shown on your Validation Certificate, which you’ll receive after buying your travel insurance.

A Staysure Annual Multi-Trip Travel Insurance policy can be bought up to 90 days before the start date you choose. (Depending on age and medical score)

Before buying travel insurance, we recommend keeping up to date with the latest government travel advice.
