10 Cancellation and refund policy

If you change your mind and wish to cancel your travel insurance policy, you have 14 days from when the policy documentation is sent to you to cancel the policy and obtain a full refund on the premium minus USD10.00 which is charged for the additional administration involved in the Policy cancellation, providing that you have not travelled or made a claim.

If you wish to cancel your policy within the 14 day cancellation period, please contact us confirming that you would like to cancel, and provide the following information:

  • Policy number
  • Date policy purchased
  • Your reason for cancellation
  • Confirmation that you have not travelled or have started a trip since purchasing the policy
  • Confirmation that you have not claimed/do not intend to claim under the policy

Or call us on +44 0208 004 9818.

Please note any phone call requesting a refund of premium will need to be confirmed by email using our contact form, or by letter to the above address.

In all cases we must check against our claims database when a refund request is made as we provide cover for certain sections of the Policy from the date the Policy is purchased, not the date of travel, so it may take up to 72 hours before we are able to process any return while checks are made.

Following the expiry of Your 14-day cancellation period, You continue to have the right to cancel Your Policy at any time during its term by contacting Us, but no refund of premium will be available.

Cancellation by Us: If You fail to satisfy the terms of Your Policy, We may choose to cancel Your Policy during the Period of Insurance:

  • by giving You 7 days’ written notice of cancellation to the last address You provided Us with; or
  • immediately if we have spoken directly to You

Examples of when We might do this includes:

  • You not paying a Premium when due; or
  • Us discovering that You are no longer eligible for cover. For example, You not meeting the eligibility requirements; or
  • Us discovering the Policy is being used for a fraudulent purpose.

If We cancel the Policy, You may not be entitled to a refund of the premium paid.

In all cases We can only refund to the credit/debit card used for the transaction and all refunds will be in USD.
