Cancer Patients Travel Insurance – Flexible Cover to Suit You
Tailor-made Travel Insurance for Cancer Patients
The cost of Travel Insurance can be expensive if you have previously been diagnosed with cancer or have a cancer diagnosis. Some insurers may increase the premiums or may not even provide cover at all. With Just Travel Cover, this is never the case. We work with specialist medical Travel Insurance underwriters to provide high-quality, affordable cover for cancer, including those in remission, terminal or a specific type such as breast, lung or prostate cancer.
Should you need assistance, you will be looked after, no matter what your age, destination or prognosis.
Fast and Easy Medical Screening
Before taking out Travel Insurance for cancer, you must make sure your doctor has declared you fit to travel. Click on ‘Get a Quote’ and complete our fast and accurate medical screening. During this process, you will be asked to declare any pre-existing medical conditions, including cancer. Please have the following information available; the name of your cancer, important dates in your medical history and the number of hospital admissions you’ve had within the last year.
Once we have the following information, you will be provided with a range of quotes and the level of cover available to you – all with varying premiums, excesses and the option to compare. Always choose the policy that best suits your health and travel needs.
In the event of a cancellation, or the inability to travel due to an insured reason, your cancellation cover starts from the moment you complete your purchase. If your travel companions are under your policy, they will also be covered.
*Please note the insurers on our panel cannot provide cover if you have a terminal prognosis of less than 6 months.

How much does Travel Insurance for cancer cost?
You can’t put a price on peace of mind, which is what Travel Insurance provides. If you have had cancer then that peace of mind is even more precious.

Please check the full benefits and choose the policy that is best suited for you and your needs.
Can I get Travel Insurance to cover cancer and heart conditions?
Yes, we understand that people living with cancer may also have heart conditions, have had a heart attack or be living with angina, so our policies cater for multiple medical conditions. When getting a quote we will ask a few questions around your medical history and circumstances, and you can then screen one or multiple conditions. Once we have those answers we will compare cover and prices from several insurers and show a list of policies that can provide all of the cover you need. Cover limits and excesses will vary, so please read over the benefits to choose a policy best suited to your needs. If you’d like some advice on this you can call us to discuss.
