  1. Purchasing the travel insurance with your first trip deposit, or shortly thereafter as explained in the policy;
  2. The amount of coverage purchased equals all prepaid, non-refundable trip payments or deposits, and the cost of any subsequent arrangements added to the same trip are insured by the date of payment or deposit for the additional arrangements;
  3. You are medically able to travel when your travel insurance policy is purchased.
