We get a lot of travellers who contact us every week as they forgot to take out insurance before they left, or are already abroad and their current insurance is about to expire and they can’t find another travel insurance policy to take out. If you’re normally resident of the UK or an EEA Country, you can take out any of our Single Trip once you’ve started travelling. The main point to note is that you can only take out the insurance on the basis that no incidents have already arisen that might give rise to a claim. So if you lost your camera yesterday, you can’t take out this insurance today thinking that the insurers will refund you, as they won’t!
There is an anti-fraud device built which means you can’t claim for anything for 2 days after you’ve taken out the policy, though if you are injured in an accident which was witnessed and verified then you’re covered for that straightaway.
So you can buy travel insurance even if you’re already overseas, so get free quote and get covered!
The True Traveller was originally a travel company, not an insurance company, and although we believe we’ve designed the best value insurance we possibly can, we understand that the price of insurance does put people off taking it out to start with. Our maxim is, if you can’t afford travel insurance, you can’t afford to travel.
