Kidney Cancer Info
Finding travel insurance after a cancer diagnosis can be tricky, especially as the two often don’t seem to go hand-in-hand. As around 30 people a day in the UK are diagnosed with kidney cancer, and travel insurance which covers cancer diagnoses hard to find, it seems unbelievable that those suffering from kidney cancer won’t want to travel.
This is why Insurancewith have created a bespoke medical travel insurance policy which offers cover for you and your travelling companions. Having worked in the medical insurance industry for years and having a vast knowledge of cancer from travel insurance experts with personal experience, we fully understand the risks and complications that travelling with kidney cancer can come with.
Regardless of whether you have a medical condition or not, travel insurance is a must-pack item before you leave to go on your trip. It’s essential to be prepared should something unforeseen happen or something goes wrong whilst you’re away, and can save you hundreds and even thousands of pounds in expenses.
You need to declare your medical condition to your travel insurer – if something does happen that’s linked to either your cancer or the medication or treatment you’re on and you haven’t declared it, your travel insurance provider could refuse to pay out any claims. It’s also important to make sure you’re safe and fully covered so that in the event that you fall ill, you can focus on recovering instead of having the hassle and stress of worrying about money.
Our award-winning medical screening system will tailor-make an insurance policy specific to your needs and medical situation, offering you not only a fair and affordable premium, but also cover any medical expenses and cancellation charges which you might incur should something unexpected happen whilst you’re away.
