Travel insurance

Hi I had breast cancer in 2011 and am now in remission. I had a mastectomy, chemo and radiotherapy and was on Tamoxifen for 10 years. I stopped taking Tamoxifen in Sept last year and been discharged from my specialist so I’m not undergoing any treatment. Do I need to keep declaring my diagnosis from 2011 for travel insurance even though it’s over 10 years ago. I feel that it’s unfair that my premiums are higher because of a previous diagnosis. Does anyone else feel like this or can give me some advice please? 

  • Hi and a very warm welcome to the online community which I hope you'll find is both an informative and supportive place to be.

    I completely agree that it feels unfair to have to keep disclosing our cancer diagnosis if asked by travel insurance companies.

    Macmillan's information on travel insurance says "If your policy says you should tell them about any pre-existing medical conditions, you must answer any question they ask as fully and as accurately as you can. If you do not, your insurer could refuse to pay a claim and could cancel your policy."

    Do you have a holiday planned?
