Pancreatic Cancer Travel Insurance
Being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer must be a very frightening and stressful time and some people will feel the need to get away from it all with family and friends to relax and enjoy time together on a holiday.
Pancreatic cancer shouldn’t stop you from travelling abroad however, one of the things you will need to think about as part of your travel plans will be adequate travel insurance to cover your medical condition.
Free Spirit believes that everyone deserves a holiday regardless of their health, so we have designed a dedicated travel insurance policy for people just like you, who don’t want their medical condition to stop them from travelling abroad and making new holiday memories.
Our pancreatic cancer travel policy
Free Spirit has 16 years experience of insuring thousands of people with all types of cancer and we can offer you a bespoke medical screening service to ensure we cover all of your medical history.
If it is the price that will determine who you buy your insurance from, remember if you choose a standard travel insurance policy, it may look appealing with a cheap price but it may not cover your medical condition or the things you need and you could be left out of pocket!
For example, if you had to seek emergency medical assistance relating directly to your pancreatic cancer while you are away, standard travel insurance may not cover you for this. If however you have declared and covered all of your medical conditions with a specialist travel insurance provider like Free Spirit, then any medical emergency relating directly to your declared medical conditions should be covered.
Free Spirit has a wide range of covers such as:
- No age limits on Single Trip or Annual Multi-trip
- A Choice of two cover options – Super and Super Duper
- Loss of damage to medical aids and prescribed pancreatic cancer medications
- Medical emergency helpline – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year
- Convalescence benefit following hospitalisation abroad (over 5 days) – up to £750 towards the cost of a trip in the United Kingdom to help you recuperate.
Why should I buy my pancreatic cancer travel cover when I book my holiday?
If you choose not to buy travel insurance and just ‘risk it’, how would you feel if you were left out of pocket by not being able to claim back your pre-paid holiday costs, in the event you had to cancel your holiday because of your pancreatic cancer.
Free Spirit offers a minimum of £2,500 cancellation or curtailment/loss of holiday cover for each person named on the policy. We would suggest that if you have family, friends and carers travelling with you, they should be added to your policy so they too can claim if you needed to cancel your holiday because of your medical condition, or if it had to be cut short while away because you became unwell. Nobody wants to think they may take a turn for the worse before they go on holiday or even when they are away, but it is always worth making sure you have the insurance protection you need, just in case!
