Everyone needs a break from time to time and if you've recently had a diagnosis then a holiday is probably going to be a priority for you.
So if this is true for you, but the thought of sorting out your travel insurance is enough to put you off making your travel plans, then you do not have to be concerned. You just need to go to the right place and getting your insurance need not be any more complicated than it has been in the past.
JustTravelCover.com a specialist medical travel insurance provider, is here to help.
Take a look at some of our most FAQ's which you may find useful…
Will I have to get letters from my Doctor 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?
Yes. Whether you have been very recently diagnosed, still receiving treatment, or have been in remission for quite some time now, you CAN get cover, as long as your Doctor 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 partners’ 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 Cancer. How will this impact my insurance?
A medical specialist travel insurer will be able to find you a policy that will cover ALL 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”.
There are many insurers out there who can cover people with medical problems but the difficult, and often long process that people have to face, is due to the extra medical questions the insurance companies will ask you.
