What are the advantages of buying my travel insurance plan sooner rather than later?
Additional benefits such as a waiver of pre-existing conditions or financial default coverage may be available if you purchase your travel insurance plan within 15 days of your initial trip payment.
In addition, when you purchase a Travel Guard plan that includes coverage for Trip Cancellation, the coverage will be effective at 12:01 a.m. Standard Time on the date following receipt by the Insurer. This means that the sooner you purchase travel insurance with this coverage, the sooner you can be covered and receive reimbursement for your trip, should you need to cancel.
