The incidence of melanoma (a faster spreading form of skin cancer) seems to be rising in Britain. 1 in 36 men and 1 in 47 women will be diagnosed with melanoma during their lifetime.

Whilst skin cancer statistics can be frightening, the good news is that around 90% of all cases are possibly preventable. In addition, it is the only cancer we can physically see developing in its early stages, so with education, awareness and knowing your normal hopefully we will see these statistics reverse, saving more lives. *

How easy is it for people with skin cancer to get travel insurance?

Getting travel insurance with a skin cancer diagnosis can sometimes be a challenge, even when using some more well-known providers. Premiums can, on occasion, end up being prohibitively expensive – and sometimes finding a suitable travel insurance policy can prove to be very difficult.

Our travel insurance for pre-existing medical conditions has been developed with input from multiple medical charities, helping us understand the genuine risks associated with travel post diagnosis of malignant melanoma. This in turn, helps us offer far more affordable premiums.

At Insurancewith, our advisers specifically assess your condition using a medical risk assessment tool called Protectif, which enables us to get a deeper understanding of your circumstances and, where possible, offer you an affordable policy, even if you have recently been diagnosed with malignant melanoma or skin cancer, had chemotherapy, radiotherapy or having ongoing treatment.

Furthermore, we consider cover for all types of skin cancer such as:

Although we ask a few more questions than other providers, getting the right kind of cover on your travels is important.
