Common questions about cover
How do you declare a brain tumour?
During the quote process you’ll be asked to declare your medical conditions. You’ll need to select ‘add condition’. Then type ‘brain tumour’ into the search bar and select ‘search’. You will then see ‘brain tumour’ and ‘benign brain tumour’ as options for you to select. Once you select one of these there will be some specific follow up questions. For further instructions view our how do I declare a medical condition page.
You no longer have a brain tumour and are not on cancer treatment, should you still declare brain tumour?
Yes, if you have ever had a brain tumour you will still need to declare it. You will be asked questions to determine the severity of your brain tumour so if your brain tumour is no longer a high risk this will be taken into consideration when calculating your premium. For more information look at our medical warranty page.
Why have you been asked to call up when getting my quote?
For some medical conditions we will need to complete the quote by phone rather than online. In this instance you will be given a number to call to complete your quote.
Is there a number you can call to discuss getting cover for your brain tumour?
Yes, if you would like to discuss your brain tumour when quoting, you can call us on 01708 339026. You can also speak to us on Live Chat.
Please note that not all the providers which are available online are available over the telephone.
You’re not sure what type of brain tumour to declare?
Unfortunately we cannot provide cover for undiagnosed conditions. This means that in order to provide you with brain tumour travel insurance we will require details about what kind of brain tumour you, or anyone else on your policy has. If you are uncertain please request this information from your GP.
How is your premium determined?
For our AllClear policies we continuously analyse and review our claims data. We take into consideration numerous factors such as your destination, trip duration, age and any pre-existing medical conditions you may have. From this we are able to calculate premiums that are fair and accurate.

Travelling with a brain tumour
If you’re going on holiday after a brain tumour, you’ll probably have a few more things to think about, which will be specific to you and your personal cicrumstances! We’ve put together some tips which might help if you or a loved one is travelling with a brain tumour.
Brain tumour travel tips
Flying after surgery
- You won’t be able to fly for around 3 months after surgery. You’ll also need to speak to your GP to ensure it’s safe for you to travel. Due to the changes in cabin pressure, you may also experience headaches on taking off and landing.
Travel insurance after a brain tumour
- If you are travelling within Europe, apply for an EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) and take it with you on holiday. The EHIC is available free of charge through the NHS Choices’ website. With the EHIC, you are entitled to free or reduced cost medical care in the country you are visiting, based on the same level of care as a resident of the country would receive. This is part of a reciprocal health service agreement.
- However, reciprocal health service agreements do not always cover the full cost of treatment and won’t cover the cost of getting you home in an emergency. So remember it’s essential to take out medical travel insurance for brain tumours in addition to the EHIC.
Swimming after surgery
- Be sure to take every precaution while in the water. For example, if you’re planning a beach getaway you shouldn’t swim alone until the risk of seizures has passed. This can be roughly one year after treatment but will be dependent on your personal circumstances.
- If you have epilepsy, ensure you always swim with a companion and in safe areas patrolled by competent lifeguards. Check your hotel pool has lifeguards if you plan to swim a lot during your holiday.
Alcohol after a brain tumour
- You might find you suffer from severe hangovers after drinking a small amount, and there is a risk of provoking a seizure if you have too much. Certain medications may also mean you’ll have to avoid alcohol if you’re unsure you should discuss any concerns with your GP.
Excursions and activities
- After you’ve been treated for a brain tumour, you may be advised to avoid contact sports such as rugby and boxing. Once you recover, you can discuss with your doctor which sports and activities are safe to resume. If you’re planning any particular activity on holiday, then you should check whether this is covered by your travel insurance policy by looking at the ‘Amateur sporting and hazardous activities’ section.
