Travel Insurance for Spain with a cancer exemption


First time I have tried to travel since diagnoses.  I had bowel surgery , chemo and a lung ablation in November  but current status is clear and general health good.

Are there any companies that provide Medical cover with a pre existing cancer exclusion to drop what I found was very high premiums? cannot find one.

Hope someone can help.



  • I got full cover from insurancewith for 2 weeks in Menorca for just over £80, I have advanced prostate cancer that has spread to spine and lower lymph nodes.

    I got this yesterday so could be worth looking at. It covers my cancer.


  • Just a word of warning though, I just tried to get insurance using insurancewith and you need to arrange it at least 1 week before travelling. (Maybe this is normal, never left it this close to arranging before.) We go on hoilday on Friday and it's too late for me to insure with this company now

  • Delighted Keith that you have insurance. Just wondered who underwrites Insurancewith and whether the claims history is solid. 

  • They are underwritten by Collinson insurance services. Don't know the history.
