When you are living with cancer, getting travel insurance can be difficult - even if your cancer treatment was years ago. We want to hear positive stories about travel insurance companies from the people who know best – you.
This blog has now evolved into a new travel insurance discussion group. Please head over to the new group to share your experiences and ask for recommendations.
<p>Hi managed to get travel insurance at last for a weeks trip to Mallorca. Have CML. The only company I could find for a reasonable price was Euro tunnel. £43 for me and my wife. Hope this helps ☺
<p>HI to both of the above. Brookside and Dobby Dad.
There's been a lot said above about reasonable covers to be found especially Eurotunnel, if you just want Europe.
About £42 per year, provided your doc will be willing to say you are fit to travel. I usually get the doc to provide this in writing. But Eurotunnel do not require it.
<p>Hi, I have a relative wanting to holiday abroad who has several problems. He has suffered from Prostrate Cancer for over 15 years, he has recently been diagnosed with bone cancer but more of a worry is his heart as he has serious heart disease. He has discussed with his doctor as to whether he should go and they have said ok but make sure you get good travel insurance. He appreciates this is going to come at a cost but can anyone suggest a company that will insure him. Thanks in advance,
