Why do I need travel insurance for cancer?

When you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, getting the right travel insurance can seem a lot tougher.

Having proper travel insurance in place can give you peace of mind so you can enjoy your holiday comfortably.

You may have already found that some insurers won’t cover you if you’re living with cancer or even if you’re in remission. But where we can help you to go on holiday and relax with peace of mind, we will.

If we can’t offer you a suitable policy, we can suggest alternatives.

Find out more about how we can insure you when you’re living with cancer, or in remission below. When you’re ready, you can either get a quote online or call us on 0800 033 4902.

Should I declare my pre-existing medical conditions on my travel insurance?

It’s important you declare cancer and any other pre-existing medical condition you may have, when taking out a policy with us.

You can declare your medical condition through our online medical screening process, which is a straightforward set of questions for us to understand how your medical conditions affect you. Or, if you prefer, you can complete the medical screening over the phone.

It’s important that all pre-existing conditions are declared on your medical travel insurance policy. This will avoid large medical bills if you need treatment in another country. Failure to disclose any pre-existing medical conditions may affect the validity of your policy should you need to claim.
