Travel insurance

Can anyone recommend travel insurance for someone who has had cancer

also my daughter lost her hair during chemo and looks different to her passport picture, will this affect her travelling 

  • 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 it can be more difficult to find reasonably priced travel insurance when you've had a cancer diagnosis but you've come to the right place to get recommendations.

    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. 

    I don't know if the fact that your daughter's appearance has changed to that shown on her passport will cause problems. Her best bet would be to contact the passport office and ask their advice.
