Advice for travelling with cancer

  • The first thing you should do in planning your holiday is to speak to your doctor about what is feasible for you and how your holiday can be managed. Ask them to write you a note confirming that you have cancer and how you treat it, including which type, brand and dose of medication you use, to help get you through any problems at airport security or if you lose your bag. You should also speak to your doctor about travel vaccinations as these can interact with cancer medications or be dangerous if you have a lowered immune system.

Reviews:

Cancer, no problem & no massive charges - Buying travel insurance was so easy & simple, health issues I thought may possibly be a bit awkward were so straightforward and the price was great which was a lovely surprise after quite a large increase in price from my previous company. People like myself who've had cancer can find it difficult to get reasonably priced travel ins so this was a dream come true. I'm a convert, thank you very much.
