Travel Insurance for Cancer Patients
Your condition should not have to dictate whether or not you enjoy a relaxing holiday or the adventure of a lifetime. If you are living with cancer or you are in remission, you may qualify for extra medical cover added to any of our Single or Annual or Backpacker policies. Our travel insurance for cancer is tailored to your specific condition.
It doesn't matter where you are planning on travelling or for how long you've had a medical condition, we will assess your case on an individual basis. With worldwide coverage including North America, you are less restricted and more protected on holiday.
Adding Cover for Cancer
To add extra medical protection simply complete the quick and confidential medical screening process after you have chosen your cover. You just answer the simple questions on your condition. We will screen for your condition to ascertain whether or not we can cover you. If we are able to offer you additional cover, you will pay an additional premium for your condition.
Medical Screening Questions for Cancer
Here are examples of some of the questions you'll be required to answer during the online screening process:
- What type of cancer do you (or did you) have?
- Has the disease ever spread?
- Where did this cancer start?
- How frequently are you seeing a doctor about this?
Experts' Top Tip - Our Online Medical Screening process is a brief series of questions that you will no doubt know the answers to immediately, but have your medical history at hand just in case as it may have questions about medication you're on.
Customise your policy
You have the choice of up to 4 cover levels and 4 areas of cover so that you only pay for the cover you need. By completing our online medical screening process you will receive a tailor made quote specifically for your condition that can be added to your policy easily.
All travel insurance policies include:
- Medical Expenses cover ranging from £2.5 million to £10 million
- Hospital Benefit cover ranging from £300 to £1,200 per day
- Personal Accident cover ranging from £7,500 to £30,000
Don't want to add extra protection for cancer?
If you have a medical condition we strongly advise that you declare it. However, if you do not wish to add the extra cover, you can choose to exclude cover for cancer from your policy after you have completed the easy online medical screening process.

Cheap. But not nasty!
I required travel insurance for my 13 year old daughters who are travelling unaccompanied to the USA later this year. Essential was one of the few companies I found that caters for that market and at a surprising low price. The cover is more than adequate although it has to be said that figures for the excess waivers were not so readily traceable. But got that I'd award it five stars. If we have to make a claim this review and the raring could go down as well as up.
