How can I extend
my travel insurance?

If you decide to extend your journey and wish to be insured for longer than the original period, you will need to purchase a new policy before the expiry date shown on your original policy’s Confirmation of Coverage.

However, coverage might not be available if you, your travel companion or a family member suffers a medical condition or injury during your first coverage period or for pre-existing conditions that previously required a medical assessment. Also, if you’re over a certain age, there might be age restrictions for some types of policies.

As general advice, we recommend that you contact your insurer as soon as you know that you'll be travelling longer than expected and to check if you will be able to purchase another policy for the additional dates when you will be travelling.
