How do I declare my condition?

We understand that you may find it difficult to talk about your breast cancer, especially if you have already spoken to a number of insurers about your condition. Therefore, our screening process is designed with this in mind, allowing you a brief, comfortable and confidential screening experience.

Simply enter your travelling details into the quote form at the top of the page, and you'll be taken through your medical screening, where you'll need to answer a few questions regarding your condition. You can be certain that all your answers will be handled with care, to ensure you get the right policy for your condition. We should add that we always advise you to speak with your GP or consultant for any medical travel advice before you book anything.

Medical screening questions:

Some questions you will be asked may relate to:

  • How long ago the initial diagnosis of breast cancer was made
  • Whether you are currently undergoing any treatment or have future treatment planned
  • Whether or not the cancer has spread beyond the breast

Medical screening takes place online through the quote form above, though if you prefer, this can also be done via our UK based insurance team by calling our friendly helpline.

Travel insurance for patients with Secondary Breast Cancer

Please be aware, that we currently do not provide cover for patients with secondary breast cancer. If you are a patient suffering from secondary breast cancer and require travel insurance, there are a number of insurers that can provide cover. We recommend visiting Macmillan's online community, as travel insurance for secondary breast cancer is often discussed.

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 take into account a number 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.
