Bowel Cancer Travel Insurance

Medical travel insurance for people with bowel cancer or a previous bowel cancer diagnosis

Travel insurance for people with bowel cancer


Getting travel insurance for bowel cancer can be quite difficult, even if you’re in remission. At OK To Travel, we endeavour to make this process much easier for you. We understand that no two cancers are the same, which is why we use a medical screening system to best capture your individual circumstances. Whether you’ve had chemotherapy, surgery, or other treatment, we will work with you to find a suitable travel insurance policy for your colon cancer.


Even if your cancer is in remission, it is important that you declare your cancer, to ensure that you are fully covered for anything directly or indirectly related to your rectal cancer. Needing emergency medical treatment whilst abroad can be stressful, especially as you are far away from home. If you have fully declared your bowel cancer and any other medical conditions, you can feel reassured that you won’t be stuck with a large medical bill.

Bowel cancer travel insurance at a fair price

Bowel cancer travel insurance frequently asked questions

Can I get annual travel insurance if I have had bowel cancer?

Potentially. This would depend on a variety of factors such as area of travel, age, and, most importantly, your medical screening. We will always try our best to provide a travel insurance policy most suitable for your needs, but we can be much more flexible when looking at single trip cover.
