When should you take out Travel insurance?

As soon as you book your accommodation, buy the plane ticket, train… so you can enjoy all guarantees: cancellation, loss or breakage of luggage, illness, theft, etc.

There is a “grace period” (of a few days) to activate the cancellation guarantee (to avoid cheating). If you need to make a trip the same day and contract your insurance, you will enjoy the remaining coverage without any problem  .
