Travel insurance recommendations for people affected by cancer

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, First time on this blog. Hope someone can help. My 27 year old son has soft cell sarcomas (Epithilioid Sarcoma) and has just started chemo. He has the opportunity to go to Spain for a week and i&#39;m sure it will do him the world of good. Can anyone help with insurance companies?? Cheers</p>

  • <p>Look at &quot;nowicantravel&quot; - much cheaper than most,I have multi myeloma and I got quite a good price. Some charge over a thousand pounds,ridiculous.</p>

    <p>Best wishes and good holidays.</p>
