Breast Cancer Travel Insurance

Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer affecting women in the UK, with around 45,000 people being diagnosed every year. Being diagnosed with breast cancer is a traumatic experience, and you may feel a holiday or short break away, once you are ready, is the perfect way to rest and recuperate.

While some travel insurance companies may charge excessive premiums, at Premier Cover we believe that everyone has the right to travel and to obtain travel insurance at an affordable price.

I Have Breast Cancer or I’m in remission. Can I Still Get Travel Insurance?

Here at Premier Cover we understand that questions about whether you can get covered and what the policy will cost can be a concern. Also maybe the thought of answering a long list of questions about your condition is off putting.

However, with Premier Cover there's no need to worry as we've made obtaining travel insurance for those with, or recovering from, breast cancer as straightforward as possible.

Our quick and easy medical screening process is available online or if you prefer you can speak to one of our highly-trained and friendly agents for free. Either way you’ll be asked some questions regarding your condition and we will then use your answers to make a quick decision, meaning you'll be covered in no time at all!

What Is A Pre-Existing Medical Condition?

A pre-existing medical condition is any illness or underlying condition that you are aware of prior to taking out your travel insurance policy. Although emergency medical treatment is covered by our policies, we can’t cover conditions that you neglect to inform us about, and this could result in your claim being rejected. As such it’s best to declare all conditions at the time of purchase and in many cases there may be no additional premium to pay. If you are unsure about anything, please give our friendly team a call on 0800 298 1112 and they will answer any questions you may have and guide you through the process too.

Do I Need An EHIC If I Have Breast Cancer?

The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) entitles UK residents access to necessary, state provided medical treatment, during a temporary visit in the European Economic Area (EEA) countries and Switzerland - at a reduced cost or free of charge. The EHIC is valid for five years.

As a valued Premier Cover policyholder, you will have no excess to pay when the EHIC is used.

Please remember to take your EHIC with you when you travel and check that it is still valid, as you’ll be required to present it when seeking medical treatment. Each traveller will require a card. The EHIC will cover the costs of managing pre-existing medical conditions, maternity care or renal dialysis but it will not cover you if you are going abroad to receive medical treatment. And because it doesn’t cover aspects such as repatriation, it’s not a replacement for having a good travel insurance policy.

Travel Tips For Those With Breast Cancer

  • If you’re taking any medication, then make sure that you pack enough to last the duration of your trip, as well as a little extra just in case you hit any unexpected delays along the way.

  • If you are wearing a prosthesis, it’s safe to wear on a plane, as the cabin is pressurised. If you prefer to carry this in your main luggage, then some air bubbles may form due to the hold not being pressurised. These will disappear shortly after you are back on the ground and won’t cause any damage.

  • As important as it is for everyone to wear sun cream, your skin will be more susceptible after radiotherapy and you may find that you burn more easily than you normally would. Make sure to wear a hat or headscarf if you have experienced any hair loss.

  • Make sure that you avoid swimming while you are receiving treatment, as well as immediately after. Your immune system is weaker during this period, and can leave you more susceptible to any germs in the water.

  • If you are travelling somewhere that requires vaccinations then make sure to check with your doctor first, as some are unsuitable for those going through chemotherapy.

  • If you need any further information then please visit the Breast Cancer Care website.
