After Buying a Policy

Can I edit my policy after I have already started traveling?

Last Updated:

Short Answer

Unfortunately, no, you may not make changes to your existing policy once you have left home for your trip. 

More Detail

Once you have departed on your trip, you may no longer edit your travel insurance policy.  However, up until the day of the listed departure date, you may make edits to your policy including changes to travel dates, trip costs, and incorrect personal information.

If you or your traveling companion are hospitalized and are required to stay at your destination longer than anticipated, or if you’re trip is extended due to a covered unforeseen reason, most travel insurance policies may automatically extend coverage to you for up to 7 days.

Additionally, some International Medical policies may allow you to renew coverage if a trip has been extended unexpectedly. A list of renewable policies are available here:

It is important to note that travelers cannot add or remove other travelers from an existing policy at any time.

This information can vary based on the travel insurance policy. Please review the policy certificate to verify coverage.
