I’ve just finished active treatment for breast cancer. I’m now just going to have mammogram for next 5 years. I’m wanting to book some trips away. Europe and possibly world wide. Do any of you have any travel insurance recommendations.
Hi Livvy Pivvy and a very warm welcome to the online community
That's great that you've finished your treatment and are looking forward to booking holidays.
Unfortunately, it can be more difficult to find reasonably priced travel insurance when you have had a cancer diagnosis.
I don't know whether you've had a chance to look through the member's stories thread yet as it's where the majority of recommendations from other forum members are. If not, clicking on the link I've created will take you straight there.
It is best to phone the insurance companies rather than try and do online quotes as sometimes they can refer to the underwriters to see if they would provide cover when an online quote might just give you a straight refusal.
Make sure you have all the information to hand about your diagnosis and treatment before contacting the insurers. This is a list of things an insurance provider might want to know when you're applying for insurance.
I hope you're able to get some reasonably priced travel insurance and that you have some lovely holidays.

Hi, I am in a similar situation, finished radiotherapy for breast cancer in July last year, and am now just on hormone treatment for 10 years. I went on Insure and Go and found that you can enter the details of your condition online, including any ongoing precautionary treatment, and they will tell you how much it adds to the cost. For me it only added on £5, so I got a week's insurance for a holiday to Italy for myself, husband and son for £47. Worth a look... Hope this helps!
