We can often provide travel insurance if have heart disease or other heart condition, such as angina, or had stents fitted.
Whatever your diagnosis, it is incredibly important to have your heart condition included in travel insurance. If you don't you could be opening yourself up to potentially very serious financial risk.
We specialise in providing travel insurance for people with a wide range of medical conditions. In fact, we receive referrals from hospitals, GPs, clinics and medical charities from all over the UK.
By asking you some questions about your condition, we will take into account your individual circumstances and tell you if we can include any heart-related claim in our policy.
The quickest and easiest way is to go through our online medical screening process, which keeps down costs and therefore premiums.
A heart condition can sometimes mean that medical attention is required urgently and involved specialist care. Medical costs is therefore something that you need to ensure will be covered. If you have declared your heart condition to us and we've accepted it in our cover, then things like consultations, investigations, medication and nursing care will be covered by the policy. These could otherwise probably run into thousands of pounds.
Not only can medical bills be high (especially if you're travelling outside Europe) but if the worst came to the worst and you needed to be brought home by air ambulance, that could cost many thousands of pounds.
If you need to be repatriated, the cost of someone medically qualified to accompany you would also be met.
If you're unable to return home on your expected date, the additional travel arrangement and accommodation costs will also be covered - not only for you but also if a partner or travelling companion has stayed with you. It is therefore very important that anyone travelling with you is covered by our policy so that any claim they need to make that could be in any way regarded as linked to your heart condition will be met. An 'ordinary' travel insurance might decline their claim on the same grounds as they might decline a claim made by you.
