Travel Insurance

Hi Guys, when I have finished my chemotherapy I would like to have a short break in Europe, but I know getting insurance may be a problem. Also I will get consultant agreement that I fit to travel. I hope that you are all having easier days, I know some of you are not , to those people I hope that things improve for you soon . As for me another 4 infusions can't say that it been easy, but got to be done. Keep Sprites up . Kind regards to you all Lorraine 😘😯😀

Have a look on the VUK website. I believe there's a section on insurance. Personally we use Justtravelcover.com.

I have a few illnesses, DVT,

Breast cancer(1 year), Wegener's granulomatosis, Chronic airflow limitation.

I asked my Dr if i could go, he said go on holiday as it would do me the world of good. I am sure yours will say the same.

I went on a 24 night cruise to the Caribbean some of the prices i was quoted were ridiculous they were nearly as much as the cruise. I finally found a company called All Clear Travel cost me £188.19.

Enjoy your holiday. I can recommend a cruise :)

I travelled in the middle of my 6 Cyclophosphamide infusions - my consultant gave me permission, and rearranged some dates to suit me. I was just going to Ireland, but it still involved flights, and I had to arrange insurance. I was travelling to attend a much-wanted-to-go-to academic conference, which had a fixed date, and I'd miss if I couldn't go then.

Vasculitis UK's page about travel insurance for pre-existing medical conditions, including listing companies who are known to be helpful, is at vasculitis.org.uk/living-wi...

In my case I got insurance - and have more recently too - with Freedom. They have an online screening system, which handled my particularly rare form of vasculitis, as well as related conditions. I felt fully covered, fully declared, and was happy with the price.

Enjoy your trip!
