Voyager Plus Already Departed Cover

We’ve all been in this situation. You’ve packed your bags and are on the way to the airport, or worse still you’ve arrived at your holiday destination, and you realise there’s something really important that you’ve forgotten to pack.

If the thing you’ve forgotten to pack is your travel insurance, the worry and anxiety this may cause could end up ruining your whole trip. Perhaps your previous travel insurance policy expired, or you just forgot to buy a policy for this trip. With all the planning, booking, and packing, it’s easy for things to slip your mind, such as getting Travel Insurance to cover you for things like Emergency Medical Expenses or protecting your baggage.

The short answer to this question is YES YOU CAN! Whilst most Travel Insurance policies require you to purchase your policy prior to departing on your trip. Here at Voyager Plus Travel insurance, we’re in the unique position of being able offer you travel insurance after your trip has started. This is known as ‘Already Departed Travel Insurance’.

Our Already Departed cover will provide you with many of the same benefits as if you’d bought the policy prior to departing once an additional premium has been paid. Some of the benefits included as standard are:

  • Curtailment Cover – up to £10,000 
  • Emergency medical Expenses (including repatriation)– up to £10,000,000
  • Baggage – up to £3,500
  • Journey Disruption – up to £1,000
  • And much more!

And if you suddenly feel unwell on your holiday, you may be wondering how to see a doctor when away from home, especially if you’re abroad. Our Voyager Plus Travel Insurance with Already Departed cover now includes a service where you can speak to a 24/7 doctor while abroad as standard*.

Technically your trip begins the moment you leave your home. Already Departed Travel Insurance is a policy designed for travellers who need travel insurance but have already started their trip or need travel insurance but are already abroad.

  • Cover is only available on a Single Trip basis (Already Departed cover is not available on an Annual Multi-Trip basis, if you do want cover for pre-existing medical conditions on an annual basis you can purchase a policy after you have returned and travel throughout the year with the knowledge that you are covered)
  • The start date of cover must be the day following the purchase of your policy.
  • Cover must be arranged for the remaining period of your trip so long as your trip does not exceed the maximum duration allowed for your age on a Voyager Plus policy - see the policy wording.
