Consumer awareness campaign, Travel Insurance Explained (TIE) were delighted to be asked to speak at Shine Cancer Support’s Great Escape to Manchester on Friday 5th October 2018.
The Escape is an opportunity for men and women in their 20s, 30s and 40s to meet others their age affected by cancer, and to explore issues which are important to them. Travel insurance and where to find it, at an appropriate price, after a cancer diagnosis is always a question at the top of most people’s list.
Fiona Macrae, Head of Travel Insurance Explained, attended the event and assured everyone that although cover is available it just may not be available from the providers they have used pre-diagnosis, but that doesn’t mean they won’t be able to get cover.
As well as all things cancer related Fiona also covered off general travel insurance, what cover you may want to look for on your policy and activity holidays.
For anyone who missed the talk here are the points that were covered off and the links to further information on the Travel Insurance Explained web site:
- Non-travelling relatives with medical conditions
- Why you should declare all your medical conditions, it doesn’t mean you will pay more money
- Why everyone in the travelling party should be on the same policy
- Activity or adventure holidays, or if you want to take part in an adhoc activity on holiday
- Travelling after a cancer diagnosis
