Cancer Travel Insurance

Specialist travel and holiday insurance for people diagnosed with Cancer

Travel insurance with cancer

It is vitally important to ensure you have adequate travel insurance if you have cancer or have had a cancerous condition in the past. It's common for most general travel insurance companies to decline cover even if you have had cancer many years ago or they may choose to exclude any claims that are related directly or indirectly to the condition. Here at It's So Easy, we consider all types of cancer including leukaemia, breast cancer and bowel cancer; cover may be available even if you are currently having treatment or have been told your condition is terminal.

According to a report from Macmillan in 2015, there were an estimated 2.5 million people living with cancer in the UK, which is set to rise to 4 million by 2030. We don't believe this should mean that you cannot travel. In fact, having had a cancerous condition may give you a new lease of life when it comes to travelling the world and we want to help you do just that! We also feel it is wrong to penalise someone that has had cancer many years ago that has now resolved,  which is why we will only need you to declare your condition if it falls into our medical declaration questions, in some circumstances it may not even need to be mentioned within your insurance policy as we might not regard it as a risk.

Holiday insurance for cancerous conditions

As medical travel insurance experts, we cover a variety of cancerous conditions on a regular basis. Our policies are specifically designed to cover serious medical conditions, so we are very familiar with all forms of cancer including breast cancer, bladder cancer, bowel cancer, lung cancer, hodgkin and non-hodgkin lymphoma


Even if you have been told that your particular cancer is very rare or you are awaiting treatment we are usually able to find a solution for you. If you do insure with us, we also cover claims that can be related back to your cancer; for example, if you were to have a stoma in place due to an ileostomy or colostomy for bowel cancer and this was to cause a problem whilst you were away or mean that you need to cancel your trip, we can cover your emergency medical expenses abroad or you could make a cancellation claim if your trip hasn't started.

If you are travelling with friends or family you can also elect to have them named on the same specialist travel insurance policy so that if any complications were to arise relating to condition, everyone on the policy would be covered to make a claim which includes claims for cancellation.
