Hi everyone,

I'm just writing to let you know about a resource which may be useful for you if you're looking for travel insurance.

One option for finding travel insurance is the Travel Insurance Directory which has been created by MoneyHelper (a separate organisation to Macmillan).  

The directory can be used to search for FCA approved travel insurers who may offer cover to people with pre-existing medical conditions. Please visit their directory by using the link below: 

https://www.moneyhelper.org.uk/en/everyday-money/insurance/use-our-travel-insurance-directory  

If anyone has any questions about finding travel insurance, please remember you can contact our teams on the Support Line for help over emaillive webchat or by calling 0808 808 00 00 7 days a week between 8am-8pm.

You can also find out more about travel insurance on Macmillan’s website.

I hope this is helpful and please remember you can also contact us here in the Community team if you have any questions either over email to community@macmillan.org.uk, or over private message to .

Take care,

Eliza

  • Thank you for this.  It's been a huge help. Travel is my passion and weirdly this has been a huge worry for me during my treatment. Travel insurance is now sorted and the holiday is booked,  so thank you 

  • That's great news  , really pleased to hear you have found the directory a big help. We have a 'Recommended travel insurance 2023-24' discussion thread that you would be welcome to share your experiences and recommendations. 

    Often members use this discussion thread to help them find reasonable travel insurance. If you can share your experience I am sure it would help someone else who is looking for Travel insurance. 

    We hope you enjoy your next trip and continue to use the Online Community as a source of support. If you need any help using the site or finding additional support, please email community@macmillan.org.uk or send a private message to the Moderator account.

    Best wishes,

  • Hi, thank you so much for sharing the above Link.  

    I have noted all Insurance Brokers in the Directory and will be trying them for quotes in the morning. Everything crossed for a good result.

    Once again much appreciated.

  • Hi ,

    Thanks for letting us know that you found this information so helpful. Blush

    As my colleague Megan mentions in her previous reply, we also have a discussion thread dedicated to sharing tips for the best experiences with different providers:

    This can be helpful for seeing if there are any new providers being recommended by others, and is also a good place to leave your own reviews once you've had an experience with a provider.

    I hope you continue to find the Online Community a useful and friendly place to get support. If you need any help using the site, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the Online Community Team by sending us an email at community@macmillan.org.uk.

    All the best,

  • Hi Mathew, and thank you.

    I am currently having dialogue with All Clear Insurer's and have found the consultant very helpful. Due to lack of information regarding my husbands meds, Simvastatin and Ramiprill, I was asked to contact our GP and find out exactly why he is on these meds! We were previously told they were preventative medication!

    We will hopefully get answers tomorrow morning and then I will feed back to All Clear in the afternoon and then continue with the Quote application.

    Kind regards

    Lucy Bear.

  • Wishing you all the best with that, . Slight smile
