Bowel cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the UK. Almost 43,000 people are diagnosed with Bowel Cancer every year in the UK.*

1 in 15 men and 1 in 18 women will be diagnosed with bowel cancer during their lifetime.*

Life after any cancer diagnosis can be emotionally and physically draining, which is why most people’s thoughts turn to having a break away when possible, during or after treatment.

Unfortunately, finding travel insurance at an appropriate price that covers Bowel Cancer can be tricky, putting people at a higher risk of either travelling uninsured or paying more than they need to, to ensure they are covered.

This is where we come in.

Even if you have recently been diagnosed with Bowel cancer, had chemotherapy, radiotherapy or biological therapy or had surgery in the last few months including:

Although we ask more questions than the rest of the travel industry, getting the right kind of cover for your holiday is important to us.
