Yes, you can purchase American Express Travel Insurance up to the day your journey begins but not after you’ve started travelling.
Single Trip Travel Insurance*: This can be purchased up to 9 months before your journey begins. From the date we confirm your insurance, you’ll be covered for loss of deposits and cancellation charges – however, all other cover will start from the date your journey begins and continue up until the final date indicated on your policy.
Annual Multi-Trip Insurance*: This cover can be arranged up to 45 days before your first journey’s start date. Cover for loss of deposits and cancellation charges commences from when we agree to provide Insurance – with all other cover starting from the start date of your first journey or the latest renewal date, whichever is the latest. Cover continues until the end of your period of Insurance, one year after the start date, as indicated on your policy.
