Anyone know of an insurance company that will insurance cancer patients ? I seem to read that if you have cancer, then they can’t cover you for travel insurance - can anyone help ?


Re Travel Insurance There s a thread on the After treatment has finished forum at the moment where there names of a few insurance company’s…hope that might be o some help sue.


try Macmillan nurses The local Macmillan nursing service has a leaflet with a list of several travel insurance companies, and the different circumstances they are prepared to insure you for

Good luck


Travel insurance Hi Sue

Below is a link to a Breast Cancer Care publication on breast cancer and travel insurance that you may find helpful.

Unison insurance covered me for trips to India and to New Zealand. The NZ trip was about a year after diagnosis and I paid about £60 for a month’s cover including breast cancer.

I went for 2 weeks to India for a small sum, I think it was about £30 again including bc


Frizzell’s seem to be linked so you could try them

Bradford and Bingley Hi,

I rang several companies in September before I finished chemo. Someone on this site recommended Bradford and Bingley and I got annual cover for myself and my husband for only £70.00 ( travel in Europe only ).

The other companies I contacted would not quote whilst I was still having treatment. When I told them I would be having herceptin after chemo there was a mixed response as to whether this constituted “treatment”.

My cover with B & B excludes anything relating to breast cancer but it is quite normal to exclude pre existing conditions. I have had rheumatoid arthiritis for 30 years and this has always been excluded on my travel insurance.

We had a wonderful break in Majorca in September and went away for 2 weeks at Xmas to Tenerife. Persevere with the insurance companies. You will get cover and the holidays will do you the world of good.

Best of luck.
