Travel Insurance for Bladder Cancer | Staysure™

Getting the right travel insurance for bladder cancer

Around 10,300 people are diagnosed with bladder cancer every year in the UK* but it shouldn’t interfere with the enjoyment of your holiday.

Having proper cover in place for your pre-existing medical conditions can give you peace of mind, knowing that if the worst happens when you’re away, you’ve got our support.

After all, we like to do things the right way and we’re sure you’re the same. We like to think that’s one of the reasons we were voted the nation’s Most Trusted Travel Insurance Provider for 2018.**

Why do I need travel insurance for bladder cancer?

Problems happening while you’re on holiday is more common than you might’ve thought, with 1 in 20 people claiming on their travel insurance in 2017.*** So, with the right travel insurance in place, you’re not only travelling with proper cover, but peace of mind.

These problems can vary from lost luggage or a stolen passport, to a medical emergency where you need to be flown home by air ambulance.

Whatever the unexpected, having proper cover in place can give you the reassurance that in a time of crisis, you have our support.

To get a quote for your bladder cancer, we’ll first need you to complete our medical screening. The process is not a long-winded exam, but a few straightforward, multiple choice questions designed for us to understand how your medical conditions affect you. That way, we can tailor your policy to you personally.

Isn’t it worth doing right?

When can I get travel insurance for bladder cancer?

As long as you aren’t travelling against the advice of your doctor or to receive medical treatment abroad, then we should be able to cover you.
Before offering you cover, we’ll first need you to confirm it’s safe for you to travel. We’ll need you to be able to say yes to all of the following:

  • I am not travelling against the advice of my doctor.
  • I am not travelling after receiving a terminal prognosis, having been given a life expectancy by my doctor or medical professional.
  • I am not travelling with the intention of obtaining medical treatment, tests or a consultation abroad.

What questions will I be asked in the medical screening?

Of course, the questions we ask you about your pre-existing medical conditions will vary depending on your personal circumstances. But the types of questions you can expect about bladder cancer include:

  • Has this ever spread to areas outside of the bladder?
  • Have you had radiotherapy to the bladder or surgery to remove part or all of the bladder?
  • How long ago was your last treatment for this condition?
  • How many cystoscopies have been required in the last 12 months?

What does our travel insurance cover?

  • Medical emergencies and repatriation up to £5m
  • Cancellation and cutting your holiday short covered from £500 with optional upgrade to £3,000
  • Baggage claims up to £300

If I have had chemotherapy, radiotherapy or biological therapy for my bladder cancer, can you offer me cover?

Yes, we may be able to give you full cover for your bladder cancer providing you are not awaiting any further surgery or treatment.

If you are awaiting further treatment or results, then we may still be able to offer you cover for your travels, but this would exclude all pre-existing medical conditions, including bladder cancer.

I have been diagnosed with terminal cancer. Can you still offer me travel insurance?

If you have received a terminal diagnosis, we may be able to cover you depending on your medical circumstances. But, if you’ve received a terminal prognosis (been given a life expectancy by your doctor or medical professional) we cannot offer you cover.

We can signpost you to the British Insurance Brokers Association (BIBA). They may be able to help in finding you an alternative provider. 

We can also signpost you to InsureCancer.com who you can call on 0845 6490190. Insure Cancer specialise in providing cover for people with active, metastatic, relapsed or terminal cancer, as well as those involved in clinical trials.
