You can buy travel insurance with comprehensive coverage anytime up until the day before you leave for your trip. Typically, travelers will wait to buy a policy until they’ve made at least one insurable payment toward their trip, which can include booking a flight, hotel, tour, or other prepaid and non-refundable trip expenses. Comprehensive travel insurance policies, with the Trip Cancellation benefit and coverage for medical emergencies, travel delays, and lost luggage, are available up until the day before you leave for your trip. These policies are no longer available after you leave for your trip because Trip Cancellation is designed to cover travelers who can’t go.
