InsureCancer is the trading style of Medi TravelCover Ltd. adopted in early 2007 so as to better
reflect the specialist services offered by Medi TravelCover Ltd, whose sole purpose is
providing travel insurance to those affected by cancer. As the UK's only specialist cancer
insurance provider our policies provide protection that includes full cover for the diagnosis of
cancer. Our policies are therefore specially designed for those living with cancer and we
routinely provide cover for those with active, metastatic, relapsed or terminal cancer to
destinations worldwide including North America.
Each case is individually underwritten and with specialist knowledge of the treatment and
management of cancer, we are ready to consider individuals undergoing treatment such as chemo or
radiotherapy. A key requirement is that holiday makers should be clinically stable and be travelling
with the consent of their attending specialist Consultant. To get a feel for the range and types of
medical conditions we are able to consider, please refer to the 'Recent Cases' section on this
We work closely with UK charities, cancer networks, specialist medical centres and support
groups. With a special focus on children, we have a close working relationship with many
trusts particularly the Christian Lewis Trust, which seeks to offer support to families and
individuals affected by a child with cancer. We actively support a number of cancer charities
and ask all our customers to help them by choosing to make a donation.
