Cancer raises travel insurance

22nd May 2007

A new study by Macmillan Cancer Support says that many people who have recovered from the condition are refused travel insurance, or made to pay more for it.

A poll of 1,137 found that two in five people were quoted higher premiums than if they had no history of cancer. Insurers defended the position by saying that the cost had to reflect the risk but the charity responded by starting a campaign designed to get the travel insurance sector to review the risk for those affected by cancer who are now recovering, or recovered from it.
