About this booklet

This booklet is about travelling when you have cancer. It is for anyone who is planning a trip abroad. There is also information for carers, family members and friends.

The booklet explains some of the issues you may need to think about before you travel. It also gives tips about getting travel insurance and taking care once you are away. We hope it helps you deal with some of the questions you may have.
