Cancer Travel Insurance
Receiving a cancer diagnosis is a terrible experience and your first reaction, naturally, can be one of shock and worry. However whilst, some cancers are not curable, most are treatable. Many people who have been diagnosed with an incurable cancer are living a relatively normal life and are able to carry on working. An essential part of leading a normal life involves going on holiday, and this is where problems can arise, because not only is it hard to find travel insurance with cancer cover but when you do, the premium quoted is often more than the cost of the holiday!
At Insurancewith our unique approach to medical screening helps us rate the risk posed fairly, which means that for the majority we can offer lower premiums. However this does not compromise the cover we offer, for example the Insurancewith Platinum policy has been awarded a Defaqto 5 Star rating.

Insurancewith has specific cancer travel insurance policies for the more common cancers such as:
Insurancewith is designed to give you a travel insurance policy that not only covers your cancer, but also provides all the usual travel insurance benefits such as lost baggage, cancellation, travel delay etc., at a reasonable price.
Finding suitable travel insurance cover during treatment can be difficult, but at Insurancewith we will consider cover for those undergoing treatment as well as those with secondary cancers.
The Insurancewith travel insurance for cancer patients policy was created by people with first-hand experience of cancer, who really understand your problems when it comes to buying travel insurance that gives you full cover for your cancer. We even have cancer travel insurance policies for the rarer cancers such as:
The Insurancewith policy has a Doctor managed 24 hour emergency help line, so that if you do encounter any problems whilst away, they will be able to offer advice and also liaise with both your medical team at home and the treating doctors in the country where you are holidaying; this is particularly important if your grasp of the language spoken is limited. Our policy gives you peace of mind so all you have to do is relax and enjoy your holiday.
Whilst having a cancer should not stop you from travelling; it is always essential that you consult your GP or specialist prior to booking your trip, to ensure that you are fit to travel.
It is also advisable to research the available medical facilities near to where you are planning to stay especially if you are travelling to an island or remote area as there may be no suitable medical facilities nearby which could be problematical in the event of an emergency.
