Travel insurance is an essential item to purchase before you go on holiday, as even though you might have been free of skin cancer for a long time, are showing no symptoms or the diagnosis doesn’t affect your day to day life, travel insurance can help you a great deal in the event of an emergency.
Unlike other travel insurance companies, Insurancewith doesn’t hike up premiums when you declare that you have had or do have skin cancer. Travel insurance acts like a safety net and can save you huge amounts of money in the unfortunate event that something unexpected happens whilst you’re away. Travelling with a medical condition can mean that you’re more likely to fall ill whilst you’re on holiday and this is why travel insurance and making sure you tell your travel insurance provider about all your medical conditions is all-important. It can cover loss of baggage, travel delays, medical expenses if you need to seek emergency medical attention should you fall ill, even with something directly related to your condition, and cancellation charges should you have to come home early.
Insurancewith have created a bespoke skin cancer policy for our customers seeking to go away who want to be totally covered for their medical condition without paying a huge premium. We have an innovative medical screening system which means we ask questions relevant to your condition in order to offer you a fair and affordable quote.
