At Freedom, we understand that no two cancers are the same and for that reason, we assess each case on its individual merits to provide the most suitable cover. Treatment can vary depending on the severity of your condition and whether the cancer is confined or metastatic. If you’ve had surgery or are undergoing chemotherapy, radiotherapy or another form of treatment - you can look to Freedom Insurance to provide cover for your travel.
Our travel insurance for pre-existing medical conditions is a fully comprehensive policy, giving you the peace of mind that you are covered if you have any change to your health during travel. It is important to have cover for your prostate cancer, as it will cover if a related complication arises whilst you are travelling such as urinary issues following a prostatectomy.
Freedom has taken these scenarios into consideration, for example, if you are admitted to hospital during your holiday, your policy will cover for emergency medical treatment or to cut your holiday short if it's in any way related to cancer.
Freedom will consider cover for those with ongoing treatment or clinical trials - Contact our UK call centre to discuss your requirements
Our prices are based on a person’s current state of health at the time of taking out a policy, but it is always important to declare your cancer and any other diagnosed conditions to ensure that we have all the required information in the event of a claim.
Our medical questions will briefly ask about your current circumstances to give us a picture of your treatment plan but whether you are undergoing treatment or have been given the all clear with regular routine check-ups, we don’t feel that prostate cancer should stop you from travelling.
