Travel Insurance for men with prostate cancer and pre-existing medical conditions

Will I be able to find travel insurance that will cover me now I have had a prostate cancer diagnosis?

Yes – you just need to go to the right place.

Most insurers will refuse to cover a cancer at all, and many insurers will charge very high premiums to cover you.

Go to a medical specialist travel insurer and you will see just how easy it is to arrange your travel insurance.

Will I have to get letters from my GP before I can take a policy out?

A medical specialist insurer can arrange your insurance very easily without the need of forms or letters from your Doctor.

Can I get insurance to cover me even though I am still receiving treatment?


Whether you have been very recently diagnosed, are receiving treatment or have been in remission for quite some time now, you CAN get cover, as your GP gives you the OK to travel.

I am travelling with my partner. Do they need to get their own insurance?

No – it is always best to get insured together on the same policy.

If your partner takes out their own insurance and you end up having to claim because of your medical problems, then your partner’s policy

would not cover them for your conditions.

Being insured together on the same policy means that if one of you has to cancel

because you become too ill to travel, or have to cut short your trip, then you are both covered for cancellation / curtailment.

I have other medical conditions too, not just Prostate Cancer. How will this impact my insurance?

A medical specialist travel insurer will be able to find you a policy that will cover MOST medical conditions from minor to more serious problems.

Will the premium be very expensive?

Do not assume that you’ll have to pay a small fortune for your cover, as this is not always the case.

Insurance premiums are calculated on a number of things such as the destination of your trip, duration, the age of the travellers, and the severity of your medical conditions.

You may wish to get a few quotes for different countries you are thinking of travelling to, and for different durations, to see how much you can expect to pay before you book your travel arrangements.

Again, a medical specialist travel insurer is your best option, as they do not have the “automatic exclusions on cover and unreasonable price increases”
