Fiona Macrae was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005. Once her treatment was finished, Fiona was desperate for a holiday, and was surprised to find how difficult it was to get an affordable travel insurance policy that covered breast cancer.
As an insurance professional with over 20 years experience Fiona was convinced that it must be possible to provide sensibly priced travel insurance not only for people with cancer but for anyone with a medical condition and so……… Insurancewith was created.
Insurancewith believes that all travellers should be treated fairly with premiums that are based on actual risk, and not on a pre-conceived idea of the medical condition. Our unique medical screening process enables us to provide competitive travel insurance for anyone with a medical condition without necessarily charging them an additional premium.
However, there is more to Insurancewith than just providing travel insurance. When you buy one of our policies, you are also helping us support various specialist charities because we donate £1 for every travel insurance policy purchased from us to one of our supported charities. These charities support thousands of people who live with medical conditions such as breast cancer and diabetes – some of the very people Insurancewith products have been designed for.
