Travel insurance after brain tumour

Last reply: 7 years ago

Hi , heading away in a couple of weeks and am finding it extremely hard to get insured. I understand il pay a hefty premium but i need it. Has anyone any history with this? Or any recommendations? And also has anyone just gone with the policy that just doesn't cover your pre existing illness, did it work out ok?

Cheers, Ian.

Hi,

There is an older thread on travel insurance that might be helpful.

Hi Frodobaby,

The Irish Cancer Society has a fact sheet on Travel Insurance and here is a link to the PDF version for you to download.

You can also order a printed copy of any of our publications by calling us on the National Cancer Helpline on 1800 200 700 (Mon-Thurs 9-7, Friday 9-5).

Generally, getting travel insurance will involve doing some research and you will usually be asked for a substantial premium.

I hope you have an enjoyable break.

With kind regards,
Cancer Information Service Nurse.
