Grade 3 brain cancer travel insurance

Hi all, this is the first time I've posted here and I'm looking for some advice. On 4th Sept 17 my husband had part of a brain tumour removed and from Oct 17 to 4th Sept 18, he had radiotherapy and chemo. He still has 30% of the tumour that can't be removed. 

I've been looking for travel insurance with little success; either they won't insurance him or it's at least £1500 for 2 weeks in Spain.  Can anyone recommend a company that might insurance him?

Hi Tia and welcome to Cancer Chat.

It can be difficult finding travel insurance after a cancer diagnosis but there are companies out there that will give you good value for money, some of which are listed on our website just here. You can find some recommendations by some of our members on this discussion as well.

I hope this helps Tia and that you and your husband have a wonderful holiday once you've got your travel insurance in place.

Best wishes to you both, 

Steph, Cancer Chat Moderator
