Insurance advice please

foodbankcupar profile image

Good afternoon, my name is Kevin.

just about to renew travel insurance for two trips to Spain, my present policy does not cover my lung cancer which has spread also to Lymph nodes in my neck.

It is being contained by immunotherapy

Any recommendations for European travel cover. or particular companies that are reasonably priced.?

Thank you for any advice

Dear Kevin

Welcome to the forum. I have placed a link below that takes you to our information booklet for travel and on page 32 there is a list of insurance providers you can contact:

It may be helpful for the airline if you have a letter from either your specialist or GP stating that you are fit to travel, this may also provide reassurance for the insurance company.

If you wish to discuss anything you can call us on our Freephone nurse led helpline number on 0800 358 7200

All the best and enjoy your holiday.

I have used You will need to complete a very long online questionnaire about your condition and treatment. For me, it was definitely worth it.

Good luck!
