Purchasing the travel insurance with your first trip deposit, or shortly thereafter as explained in the policy;
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;
