Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in the UK, with around 55,000¹ people being diagnosed every year. No matter how common breast cancer is when you are diagnosed it is a complete shock and turns your world upside down. The treatment can be gruelling and many people plan a holiday during a break in treatment or at the end of treatment, however, this can be problematic due to the difficulty in finding breast cancer travel insurance at an affordable premium.
Insurancewith breast cancer travel insurance was devised by Fiona Macrae who has had personal experience of breast cancer; you can read her story here. Our cancer travel insurance policy covers all the standard things, including:
It can be confusing trying to understand insurance policies and making sure they are suitable for your needs. We offer a specialist cancer travel insurance policy for you and your family that is easy to understand.
You can confidentially discuss your breast cancer diagnosis and treatment with one of our trained medical screening advisers, who will give you information about our policy in a friendly and easy to understand manner, and explain, where required, the policy conditions before you purchase.
Getting travel insurance with a breast cancer diagnosis can be really difficult, even when using some more well-known providers. Premiums can end up being prohibitively expensive, or it’s difficult to be covered at all.
At Insurancewith, we work differently to the rest of the market. Our founder, Fiona, found that often travel insurance policies for people with cancer either weren’t available or were prohibitively expensive – often costing more than the price of the holiday itself!
Our advisers specifically assess your condition using Protectif, which enables us to offer you an affordable tailor-made travel insurance for cancer, even if you have recently been diagnosed with breast cancer, had chemotherapy, radiotherapy or biological therapy or had surgery in the last few months including:
Although we ask a few more questions than other providers, getting the right kind of cover on your travels is important. Here at Insurancewith, we do more than just insurance. We’ll make sure you’re cared for from sale to claim.
We can’t be found on comparison sites, and we provide award-winning cover, but that’s not all. Some of our policy benefits include:

Our common-sense approach to medical travel cover has been recognised by industry peers and customers alike. We want to make it easier for more people to travel. Many of those we’ve helped talk about how they’d almost given up with the idea of getting away. We understand that getting away and knowing you’re protected should something unexpected occur has a real impact.
