Travel insurance for people with cancer
Travel insurance and cancer… We understand those two things don’t necessarily fit well together. However at InsureandGo, we believe travel insurance should be made available to as many people as possible. So if you have cancer and you’re concerned about whether travel insurance will cover you, or you’ve had trouble getting covered in the past, we may be able to help you.
Can you get travel insurance if you have cancer?
Getting travel insurance when you have cancer can be tricky – many insurers simply don’t offer insurance to cancer patients as they consider them to be more likely to make a claim. One of the things that makes us stand out from our competitors is that we will consider any and all medical conditions.
We’ll need to ask some questions about your conditions and we may charge you extra to be covered for them. The extra charge depends on your health and the conditions you have, but we aware that it can be higher than the cost of covering other types of conditions.

What is typically covered in travel insurance for people with cancer?
If you’re able to have your current illness included on your policy, then InsureandGo can cover the cost of emergency medical treatment you need abroad and repatriation if you or the person travelling with cancer needs to be returned home for medical reasons. If your cancer is excluded from the policy, then this will only apply to any illness or injury not resulting from the pre-existing illness.
Can you get travel insurance if you have terminal cancer?
Yes, we can insure you if you have terminal cancer, as long as the prognosis is more than 6 months from your return date and your GP has confirmed that you are fit to travel.
Can you get travel insurance if you’re in remission?
Yes, we can insure you if you’re in remission. However, we’ll need you to complete a simple medical screening. Get a quote online to go through our screening process
