Don't let bowel cancer be a pain in your holiday plans

Goodtogoinsurance.com offers insurance to sufferers and raises awareness of Be Loud Be Clear week - 24th-30th January

In support of Beating Bowel Cancer’s ‘Be Loud Be Clear’ campaign, leading specialist cancer travel insurance provider, goodtogoinsurance.com, is highlighting the importance of appropriate travel insurance for those suffering from bowel cancer. Being diagnosed with cancer doesn’t have to spell the end to holidays abroad, as goodtogoinsurance.com offers fair-priced travel insurance for cancer sufferers, helping them travel safe in the knowledge that they are protected should something go wrong.

Be Loud Be Clear 2011 is part of UK charity Beating Bowel Cancer’s work to raise awareness of symptoms, promote early diagnosis and encourage open access to treatment.

“Bowel cancer is the third most common cancer in the UK and the second most common cancer in women, after breast cancer*, which means thousands of people are living with it today,” says Iain Sykes, Managing Director of goodtogoinsurance.com. “We understand that some of the difficulty of being diagnosed with cancer is the feeling that your life is put on hold and you can’t do many things you enjoy. For many this means an end to travel abroad, partly due to the outdated misconception that good quality travel insurance is unreasonably expensive. Some sufferers may even choose to travel without declaring their condition, leaving them with no protection if they require treatment on their trip.

“During Be Loud Be Clear week we want to remind people suffering from this common cancer that affordable travel insurance catering to their specific needs is available. At goodtogoinsurance.com we can cover almost any condition, including those with a terminal prognosis, allowing more people the peace of mind to enjoy foreign travel, with access to medical support anywhere in the world.”

Goodtogoinsurance.com uses a medical screening process to help it provide the appropriate medical travel insurance cover for an individual’s condition. It’s easy and only takes a few minutes. Travellers simply complete a short medical screening questionnaire online or over the telephone and in almost all cases, goodtogoinsurance.com can provide an instant quote. There’s no need to provide medical certificates or for goodtogoinsurance.com to contact any doctors, taking the stress out of getting good quality travel cover.
