One-way trip travel insurance FAQs

Can I buy one-way insurance after I've left my home?

Yes, you can! Technically, if you're already overseas, even if you have a flight home, the policy you’re buying is a one-way trip. It's just one-way home. But it's basically the same. Just remember that there's a 72-hour waiting period from the time you buy the policy.

What if I change my mind and want to come home?

Not a problem at all. It won't effect your coverage at all. If you do come home before the end date of your policy, cover will cease when you get home. There aren't any refunds for the unused part of your policy though.

What if I want to keep on travelling after the end of policy?

You may be able to extend your trip, but up to a limit. Just be mindful of the regions you're travelling to – if you're moving to a new part of the world, you'll want to double check that your policy covers that area. Alternatively, you can purchase a new policy. If you do, be mindful of the 72 hour waiting period, but you can buy the new policy before the old one expires.
