Help: What is Departure Date?

Last Updated:

When getting a travel insurance quote, make sure to enter your departure date.

The departure date is the date that the traveling party is scheduled to leave their home and begin the trip.  Travel insurance will cover the traveler from their home, through the trip and back to their home.  So the departure date is not necessarily the date that a flight is scheduled, but when the traveler commences any travel related to the trip.

Always refer to the certificate of insurance for details.
