Does anyone know of a insurance company that will insure someone with lung cancer

  • Hi Thornette,

    Thanks for getting in touch.

    Unfortunately, we’re not able to recommend any specific companies for travel insurance because we’re not regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), but I hope the following information helps you with your search.

    Travel Insurance:

    We often find a good starting place when looking for affordable cover is to use other people’s experiences. If you have not already done so, you can visit the travel insurance section of our online community here. On this page you will find posts from people affected by cancer sharing their experiences of which companies they have approached and who they have managed to get cover from.

    I’d also encourage you to take a look at the Travel Insurance directory on the MoneyHelper website which you can access here. The directory can be used to search for FCA approved travel insurers who may offer cover to people with pre-existing medical conditions.

    Another website which may be useful is British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA). They have a travel medical directory which can be used to search for travel insurance for anyone who has a serious medical condition. Their directory also meets the FCA criteria for a medical cover firm directory.

    You can search their directory for travel insurers in the link below:

    Insurance companies use medical screening systems to assess the risk of offering insurance, but many companies use the same system. When you come to apply for cover you might find the medical questions will often be the same. However, the premiums offered by companies using different systems can vary considerably so it is worth persisting and shopping around.

    If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch – we’re also happy to speak with you on our freephone telephone number which is 0808 808 0000.


    Kind Regards
