Cancer Travel Insurance Guide:
Having Cancer or if you have had Cancer in the past, it may be difficult to obtain Travel Insurance and quotes can vary drastically from one provider to another. It is important to answer all questions accurately and honestly to ensure that you have cover in place in the event of having to make a claim. Cancer Travel Insurance applications are based on a number of factors, such as:
- Date of Diagnosis
- Treatment (i.e. Radiotherapy or Chemotherapy)
- Hospitalisations (usually past 12 months)
- Other conditions (anything related or non-related to your cancer)
These questions form part of what is called a 'medical screening process' which is how the risk for your Cancer Travel Insurance policy will be assessed and premiums are calculated. Failure to answer these questions accurately and honestly, may result in a claim being declined in the event of a claim relating to your Cancer during your trip or for Cancellation.

Top Tips for Cancer Travel:
As with any form of foreign travel, it is important to be prepared before you travel and even more so if you have a pre-existing medical condition such as Cancer. Most people only have a small checklist, such as:
- Print tickets / Boarding passes
- Check passport dates
- Pack sun cream / sunblock
If you have a pre-existing medical condition such as Cancer, then there are a few more things that you may need to consider.
Seek Medical Advice before you travel
It is important to speak to your GP, Doctor or a medical professional to ensure that you are fit enough to travel and to understand the risks involved with foreign travel.
Take sufficient medication
You should always make sure that you have more than enough medication you would need for the period that you are going to be away for. It is also advisable if you are travelling with a family member or a friend to get them to carry some medication with them in case of loss of luggage. You should also check to see whether there are any restrictions with your chosen destination on the medications that they allow.
If you are currently taking strong painkillers then you should also check whether you need a license to carry them with you.
Apply for an EHIC
You can also receive a certain level of free cover for European travel if you apply for an EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) before you travel.
Apply Online: https://www.ehic.org.uk
It is also important to check what you will be covered for with an EHIC and to take out an adequate Cancer Travel Insurance policy for your trip.
