Cancer Travel Insurance

Getting away following treatment is all part of getting life back on track after a cancer diagnosis, so there’s no need for the difficulty and expense that often comes with finding a travel insurance policy for your trip.

At Boots, we recognise that sometimes it is unnecessarily difficult to find cover for your upcoming trip if you have had cancer, so we’ve created a policy for our customers which doesn’t just take into account your baggage and cancellation, but also medical cover for your condition too.

Please note we will consider any medical condition, so it’s not just those mentioned on our medical pages – you can still get a quote on your individual medical condition. Simply enter your medication or condition when prompted on our online quote process. Alternatively, if you want to discuss this with a member of our friendly customer service team, contact us.
