Travel insurance

Does anybody have any experience of getting travel insurance whilst undergoing chemo?  I have 3 weeks between each session and would like to go to Spain following my second session.  Any thoughts please?

Hi Friendly,

Other ladies on here have given the following travel insurance companies, which hopefully you will find useful?  They are: and Eurotunneltravel Insurance - although you have to call up the Eurotunnel one as they do not operate on-line, so I am led to believe.

Hope this is of help… let us know how you get on as I too will need to book some soon.

Hello Friendly,


Have a look at

Many insurance companies will not insure you whilst you are still having chemotherapy but this one will.

I have booked a holiday for June this year but obviously need to have insurance in place in case I need to cancel before that.

Many told me to come back once my chemo was finished which is no good.


Hope this helps and you manage to get away to sunny Spain !
