Hello all


Just thought I would see if anyone knows about, or know anyone who deals in overseas travel insurance for people with pre-existining medical conditions.


Basically traveling to Saint Vincent in the Caribbean at the start of February for 2-4 weeks.


Medical condition is multiply myeloma. And the person has been in remission for 6 months, also having a successful stem cell transplant in July/August.


There is maybe another part to this story which maybe required, but it’s very new information in that the person has also had to be admitted to hospital for a couple nights following a chest infection and has to take antibiotics.


Anyway hope someone knows a firm who deals in insuring cancer patients who have finished their treatment, and had a successful stem cell transplant. x

People here may know of companies, but you also have the option of talking to a local insurance broker who deals with travel policies. A good one will know which companies are likely to view this favourably.

This may be a good starting point https://community.macmillan.org.uk/cancer_experiences/travel_insurance/?_ga=2.247816007.1930939390.1547735185-890866969.1547735185


Getting travel insurance for serious illnesses can be a daunting task. I was once quoted £1500 for a week in Spain - cardio problems. There is no easy fix and unfortunately you appear to be going to one of the most expensive regions there is for insurance purposes.

There are various specialist companies, but they can be more expensive. If you have travel insurance via Bank account or existing annual policy, most companies will underwrite additional health risks for an extra premium.

We could do with some help from you.

Thanks for all the replies. Coincidentally, was listening to a programme on 5 live a few weeks ago, about youngsters who'd been in remission who were quoted thousands for a weeks holiday in the med, so yep big issue. Think they are trying to ghet a change in the law so thatif youve been i remission for xxx, then it does not need to be declared, but whatever, I need to sort myself ouit as I will be going away imminently.


I'd found something online fpr £400 which i'f be happy with. Now I am back on my feet, i'm on the ball and will be doing some proper research.. Tried a local one, and they put a couple quotes through, declined at both, so will go online for this.


And UB, yes i;d thouhgt of the bank insurance so will investigate that avenue as well. Cheers guys
