A blog about getting travel insurance when you're affected by cancer. Mainly written and updated by Debbie and Graham from Macmillan's information team – but anyone can contribute.
You might not know it from the weather, but spring officially begins today.
It’s a time of year when many of us start looking ahead to the summer. And, if you’re like me, you may be starting to daydream about holidays.
The daydreaming side of things is great. Unfortunately, there are also those annoying practical issues that we all need to think about before the bag-packing can commence.
At Macmillan, all the evidence – from your phone calls, posts on the Online Community, and search requests on our website – suggests that getting travel insurance is the single issue that causes you the most trouble when you try to organise trips abroad. With this in mind, we’ve set up this new blog.
Here are our main aims for the blog:
Lots of you have posted about travel insurance on the Online Community. So you probably know about all the issues that can make it more difficult to get travel insurance when you have, or have had, cancer. Getting cover can be particularly difficult if you’re going through treatment, or if you are terminally ill. If you need any more information about these issues, our online travel insurance information gives more details.

Quote for a week in Ayia Napa for my daughters insurance of £700 from free spirit. A lot of other insurance won't insure her to be fair but that's per trip!!! She's planning three!!! Has anyone got anyone else to try have got another one to try but can't get quote until nearer time.
