  • 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.

    Unfortunately, as you've found, it can be more difficult to find travel insurance when you've had a cancer diagnosis.

    I don't know if you've had a chance to look through the 'recommended travel insurance' thread yet as it's where the majority of recommendations from other forum members are. Clicking on the link I've created will take you straight there. You might also want to look at this thread as it includes a link to a Travel Insurance Directory. 

    Most people recommend that it's best to phone the insurance companies rather than try and do online quotes as often at the end of the online quote it will tell you to phone the company and you'll then have to go through all the information again. Also sometimes the broker can refer to the underwriters to see if they would provide cover when an online quote might just give you a straight refusal. 

    Do let us know how you get on.
