Welcome to the August 2018 travel insurance update. The summer holidays have finally come to an end. Who is looking to book in a get-away for the October Half Term? We hope the discussions over on the travel insurance group will give you some valuable recommendations.

In August, the travel insurance group was featured in an online article by The Telegraph. You can read the article ‘Travelling with cancer: how to get insurance without being ripped off’, here.

Thank you to those of you who contributed over the group in August. Here are some of the highlights:

Success stories

‘Hubby has stage 4 melanoma…given that I’d not got far with other companies, I thought this was pretty good!’

‘After hours of trawling compare sites to be quoted ridiculous sums of money I've just found a good deal.’

‘So relieved and delighted. Before this we were either refused travel insurance or quoted ridiculously high prices.’

‘[They] sorted out the issue to my total satisfaction. I would recommend this insurer to any person in my situation. They took a very sensible and compassionate approach.’

Travel and cancer information

If you are thinking of going on holiday, remember to take a look at Macmillan's information on travel and cancer before you go, to help you get the most out of your trip.

Our information includes:

  • how cancer treatment may affect your travels
  • information about vaccinations, immunisations and going abroad for treatment
  • taking care of yourself while you are away.

Please keep sharing your experiences (good and bad) with us. Head over to the travel insurance group and start a new discussion.

Many thanks to  and  for contributing to this blog.

Safe travels!
