What if something happens when I’m away and I can’t get home? (Automatic extension)
If anything unforeseeable and outside of your control prevents you from getting home by midnight on the trip return date shown on your COI, we’ll automatically extend your cover until midnight the following day (AET).
Further, if you're covered under an event while travelling, and that event prevents you from returning home before your cover ends, we'll extend your cover up to the earlier of:
when you’re reasonably able to arrange alternative transport home;
when you – or, where relevant, your travelling companion – are medically fit to return home following illness or injury: or
six months after the trip return date shown on your COI.
