Already Left UK

Specialist travel insurance if you have already travelled without insurance or your existing cover has lapsed

Left UK travel insurance

If you have forgotten to take out travel insurance prior to leaving the UK and are only just realising your mistake, or perhaps your existing policy has expired and left you uninsured; don't panic, we can get you back on track!


This specialist policy is designed for permanent UK residents that are already travelling outside of the UK. Cover is available up to 79 years of age, for a maximum of 365 days. The following trip durations will apply:


AgeMax Duration
0 - 65 years365 days
66 - 69 years93 days
70 - 74 years62 days
75 - 79 years31 days

You must be a UK passport holder, have unrestricted entry to the UK and be registered with a GP in the United Kingdom. 

Extending your stay abroad

If you need to extend your stay abroad but your current travel insurance provider cannot provide cover for the new dates, we can help!

Many insurers limit the number of days they can provide cover for, so if you've already been on your trip for a long time and want to extend, you may breach the maximum duration available under your cover and be left without insurance. This is where we can step in and look to offer cover despite you already being outside of the UK.

72 hours until your cover becomes effective

If you take out your cover after you have left home to commence your trip, the insurance does not take effect until either 72 hours from the date you purchased the policy or from the start date of the policy.


In the event of serious injury in connection with an accident, you will be covered from either the date you purchased the policy or from the start date of the policy, whichever is the later, subject to the accident being witnessed and verified by an independent witness. Our definition of an independent witness can be found in our policy wording.
