Prostate Cancer Travel Insurance
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men. Every year about 36,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer in the UK. It accounts for a quarter of all newly diagnosed cases of cancer in men. So with so many people affected it’s surprising that many sufferers struggle to get travel insurance or pay excessive premiums which is most cases is just not necessary. Prostate cancer which is confined to the Prostate has an approximate survival rate of 90%. This considered it’s a wonder why 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.
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.

Prostate Cancer Info
After a cancer diagnosis, planning to get away can be difficult and a little bit extra preparation and planning is required. Cancer can effect things like where you go, what you do and how you do them, but this shouldn’t hold you back from travelling.
If you’re planning on going abroad for your trip, make sure you invest in a travel insurance policy which covers your medical condition before you leave. Travel insurance not only covers important things like loss or delay of baggage, cancellation, having to come home early and liability expenses, but can also help pay for things such as medical bills should you fall ill or injure yourself on holiday. Travel insurance can be difficult to buy after a cancer diagnosis, with most companies reluctant to offer cover to someone who they consider would be more likely to need to claim than others which means your quote can be quite expensive.
Insurancewith’s specialist prostate cancer policy specifically covers you should you fall ill with something related to either your medical condition or the medication or treatment you are receiving. We at Insurancewith understand that everyone deserves to have a holiday, whether they’re ill or not, which is why we designed this policy for you.
We have years of insuring customers with medical conditions which means we not only understand the difficulties and complications that people with prostate cancer have in getting away but we can also offer you a fair and affordable quote thanks to our innovative medical screening programme.
Our medical screening was designed for those who find they can’t always fit inside the boxes that some travel insurance questionnaires include. Our friendly and empathetic medical screening team understand your condition, and although we may ask a few more questions than others, this results in a policy specific to your medical situation for a fair and affordable price.
