How do I declare my condition?
If you have a more complex condition involving epilepsy or a malignant tumour then you will need to take your screening with a member of our specialist team by calling our friendly, UK based helpline. Otherwise, you can complete your screening online.
Depending on the type and nature of your brain tumour, you could be asked a varying range of questions surrounding your condition.
Here is a sample of the kinds of questions you could be asked:
- Whether the cancer had spread to the brain from elsewhere.
- How long ago the diagnosis was made.
- Whether the cancer has been completely removed or destroyed by surgery or radiotherapy.
If you have recently received surgery to remove the tumour in most cases, doctors will advise against travelling by air for at least 3 months after the treatment.
In this instance, we won't able to provide cover where your travelling conflicts with the advice of a recognised medical practitioner, so please bear this in mind before you decide whether you will travel.
How do we calculate the price of your policy?
To give you an accurate and fair price for your policy, our team of insurance experts consider a range of factors before giving you a quote.
Level of risk - Our insurers assess the severity of your condition, doing so based on the answers you provide during your screening.
Age - The likelihood of having to make a claim increases generally tends to increase according to the age of the traveller, so this is taken into account when we draw up your policy.
Destination - With some locations, the only suitable healthcare facilities available are privately run, and so cost more. In this case, you may find that the price of your policy is slightly higher to reflect this.

Tips for travelling with a Brain tumour
Medication - If you need to take medication into the cabin that exceeds the usual volume restriction, you will need to obtain a note from your doctor. Be sure to bring enough medication with you to last the entire trip and possibly longer, in case you are delayed while returning home.
Alcohol - In most cases, it should be perfectly safe for you to drink alcohol in moderation, though you should be mindful of the nature of your personal condition. In many cases, brain tumour suffers will find that even a small amount of alcohol will leave them with a disproportionately painful hang over.
Activities - If you have recently been treated for a tumour, it's recommended to avoid all forms of contact sport so bear this in mind when you're planning your holiday activities.
