How do I declare my condition?

We understand that you may find it difficult to talk about your condition, especially if you have already spoken to a number of insurers about your condition. Our screening process is designed with this in mind, allowing you a brief and confidential screening experience.

Simply enter your travelling details into the quote form at the top of the page, and you'll be taken through your medical screening, where you'll need to answer a few questions regarding your condition. You can be certain that all your answers will be handled with care, to ensure you get the best policy for your personal needs. We should add that we always advise you to speak with your GP or consultant for any medical travel advice before you book anything.

Medical screening questions:

Some questions you may be asked:

  • Has there ever been a spread from the breast to any other part of the body?
  • How long ago was your last treatment for cancer?
  • Are you currently having, or planning to have, any cancer treatments?
  • Have you been offered chemotherapy, radiotherapy or surgery but chosen not to proceed?
  • What was the outcome of your most recent scan or x-ray to assess your cancer?
  • Are you taking strong painkillers every day for this condition?
  • Do you need assistance with your day-to-day activities as a result of this condition?

Medical screening takes place online through the quote form above, though if you prefer, this can also be done via our UK based insurance team by calling our friendly helpline.
