Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men. Every year about 52,300¹ men are diagnosed with prostate cancer in the UK. So with so many people affected it’s surprising that so many sufferers struggle to get travel insurance or pay excessive premiums which in most cases is just not necessary. Prostate cancer that is confined to the prostate has an approximate survival rate of 78%¹ (surviving 10 years or more). Therefore, it’s surprising that so many insurers misunderstand the condition and are reluctant to insure it at a reasonable cost, if at all. Some insurers charge astronomical premiums because they don’t fully understand the actual risk. To view our general cancer travel insurance page, please click here.
At Insurancewith we do understand the actual risk and believe that everyone deserves a holiday, so in turn have designed a specific policy for people who have been diagnosed with Prostate Cancer. We have experience of insuring thousands of people with Prostate Cancer and have done so for the last 15 years. This means not only do you get a policy which gives you peace of mind for you and your family, it is reasonably priced and designed to cover you and your holiday. We offer worldwide policies, cruise specific policies, winter sports cover and can insure longer trips for those wishing to stay away for a while.
Often, people with a prostate cancer diagnosis can find it harder to get cover for their holiday. If you can find a policy to cover you, it can usually cost more as often insurers see you as a higher risk for making a claim than someone with no medical conditions.
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!
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.
Our trained medical screening advisers are able to offer confidential, friendly advice about our policy as well as specific risk assessment of your condition to offer you tailor-made travel insurance if you have had a recent diagnosis of prostate cancer, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, immunotherapy or any other biological therapy. We also can provide cover if you have had recent surgery, such as:
The actual risk of travelling with Prostate Cancer on for example a 2 week holiday is often actually relatively low. However in the event of an emergency or the need for immediate Prostate cancer treatment abroad, Insurancewith have a worldwide 24-hour emergency assistance company who can organise and authorise your treatment, give medical and practical advice as well as arrange alternative flights and accommodation for you and your family until you are fit to travel home. They will also liaise with the treating Doctors and your specialist in the UK to ensure any proposed treatment is of a long term benefit to you, not just an immediate solution.
We provide award-winning cover, but that’s not all. Some of our policy benefits include:
