We work with a panel of insurers who specialise in this area, providing cover for virtually all heart conditions, including if you have had a heart attack and/or heart bypass, you’re living with angina, have an irregular heartbeat or ischaemic heart disease.

What does Travel Insurance for heart conditions cover?
People take Travel Insurance to protect against the unforeseen, particularly with regards to medical treatment overseas if you have an accident on holiday. However, if you have a pre-existing condition such as angina or cardiovascular disease you must make sure you declare these when taking out insurance, so that you’re covered for any treatment you need while away relating to your existing condition. Having the right cover could save you a lot of money when it comes to medical bills should you need treatment abroad. Plus, your Travel Insurance will also offer cancellation cover, for example, if you need to cancel your trip for medical reasons relating to your previous/existing heart conditions.
