Getting travel insurance can be difficult if you have had a cancer diagnosis. It might be expensive and/or carry a high excess. Your insurance company may also need a letter from your doctor that says you are fit to travel. All these factors can seem unfair when you are looking forward to your first holiday in a long time.

For an up-to-date list of insurance companies experienced in insuring people who have cancer or have had cancer treatment please look at the Macmillan cancer support website :
