Most companies will allow you to renew your travel insurance policy online if you decide to extend your visit. Some companies will ask you to submit a new application. You can find information about policy renewals for travel insurance on this page.
Most policies won't automatically renew, so you should learn about renewal requirements and processes before you choose your plan if there is a chance you might stay longer than you initially planed to.
- If additional coverage time is needed, a new application and subscription agreement must be completed, and correct plan cost submitted to Global Underwriters Agency. A new Deductible, Coinsurance, other limits, and Pre-existing Condition Exclusion will apply at each succeeding or subsequent Period of Coverage.
All other plans cannot be renewed. However, you may purchase another policy if you find you need additional coverage. Simply re-enroll in Visit USA-HealthCare prior to the expiration date of the first policy. The ‘Requested Effective Date’ should be one day after the first policy's expiration date.

As part of our service, we also strive to explain products and answer questions right here on this website. Still, we must offer a disclaimer for our travel medical insurance and other travel insurance guides. As with any insurance, you must read the insurance company's brochures and policy or certificate before making a purchase. The insurance company's documents explain policy features, benefits, exclusions, limitations, claims handling, and other critical details. If you ever find a conflict between our website's wording and information from the insurance company, the insurance company's documents take precedence and represent your legal contract.
