Travel Insurance after leaving

It’s not uncommon for people to head off on their travels without taking out insurance, or to find out once they are already overseas that their travel insurance is about to run out. But don’t fret, Big Cat can still provide you with suitable single trip cover even though you’re already abroad, or we can extend your existing insurance to cover the remainder of your travels.

The easiest way to do this is to book this on our website, but there are certain conditions that must be met. Firstly, you must be a UK or EEA passport holder and normally resident in the UK or an EEA member state. Secondly the policy cannot cover incidents that have already happened prior to having taken out the insurance, and no claims can be accepted for 48 hours after the policy has been issued, although in the event of a serious injury in connection with an accident, medical emergency treatment claims requiring in-patient treatment and occurring within the first 48 hours can be accepted if they are witnessed and verified by an independent third party.

If you purchased your original travel insurance from Big Cat and want to extend it or add activities which aren't covered in your existing policy, just go to extend your travel insurance page and fill in the form.

Please note the above information is only a summary of the cover provided.  Full details may be found in the policy document.

Annual Multi-trip policies cannot be purchased if you are already travelling.
