Testicular cancer travel insurance

Testicular cancer travel insurance offers cover if you’re currently living with testicular cancer or are in remission, and wish to travel with peace of mind. This type of insurance covers you for medical emergencies, giving you the support you need when you are abroad and preventing unexpected medical bills.

If you have been diagnosed with testicular cancer and have had difficulty finding testicular cancer travel insurance, AllClear could help. At AllClear, we specialise in covering people with a wide range of cancers, including testicular cancer, and other medical conditions because we believe everyone has the right to travel.

Having fully declared your testicular cancer, a comprehensive travel insurance policy should cover you:

  • To access a 24-hour medical emergency line from anywhere in the world if you require unplanned medical care.
  • To claim for any medications or medical treatments while on holiday.*

*Providers will vary, so do check the cover limits of the policy you intend to purchase.

Will you be covered if you’re travelling during the COVID-19 pandemic?

There are three things to check so that you can make sure you're covered:

  • You must be fit to travel
  • The FCDO must NOT have advised against travel to your destination - check the FCDO travel advice
  • You must follow the local government advice for your destination, checking and following their guidelines and entry requirements

You can then be covered for emergency medical expenses and cancellation for a positive diagnosis of COVID-19, with AllClear travel insurance with enhanced Coronavirus cover. Existing policyholders should read our Frequently Asked Questions if your trip is affected by Covid-19.

Travelling with testicular cancer

At AllClear, we understand that travelling with testicular cancer may take more preparation and planning but that as long as your doctor has declared you fit to travel, it shouldn’t interfere with your trip.

From destination to accommodation there are certain things you’ll want to consider. Planning your trip well in advance will mean you’re prepared and able to fully enjoy your break.

Read our top tips on travelling with testicular cancer:

Planning your trip

  • Depending on the stage of your testicular cancer, you’ll probably want to speak to your GP before travelling so they can advise the best time for you to travel. They can also advise on destinations, as well as which activities to try and to avoid so as not to overexert yourself on your trip.
  • If you’ve been having chemotherapy for your testicular cancer, you might feel lethargic and become easily fatigued, so consider somewhere you can get to within a couple of hours. Europe is full of fun destinations within a couple hours travel time so you should easily find the perfect place to explore.

Travelling with your medication

  • If you’re taking any specific medication for testicular cancer and will need this when you travel, make sure you get enough from your doctor to last the duration of the trip. It’s a good idea to get a few extra days supply in case unexpected delays come up. Also try to keep your medication in its original packaging with your name clearly printed on it so that customs know exactly what it contains. Pack these in your hand luggage bags in case your checked luggage gets delayed or lost.
  • If you are currently doing any forms of daily exercises for your condition, be sure to ask your doctor to provide you with a written regime to adhere to during your travels.

Flying with testicular cancer

  • Depending on the stage of your cancer, you may want to consider booking priority boarding and an aisle seat to make it more comfortable for yourself. If you feel you need to use the bathroom frequently, this can make the journey more convenient for you. Be sure to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water during the flight.

Your EHIC and travel insurance

  • The EHIC offers you free or low cost medical treatment in the country you’re visiting; however, you will still need travel insurance for your testicular cancer too.

Enjoying your time away

  • Your doctor or oncologist may have suggested you try to live a healthier lifestyle to aid recovery and help to keep the risks of the cancer returning down.

This may include:

  • Not smoking to lower the risk of getting testicular cancer in the other testicle, if both aren’t affected. Try avoiding smoky areas and if you’re travelling with people who smoke, ask them to be respectful of your condition and to not smoke around you.
  • Eating healthily while on holiday and staying hydrated will ensure you get to enjoy your holiday fully.
  • Avoid tap water or anything which has been washed in tap water.
  • Chemotherapy and certain medications can increase your skin’s sensitivity to direct sunlight. Taking care while in the sun by always using the appropriate SPF when out and about (SPF 20 or higher) is strongly recommended.
