Travel Insurance for Angina FAQs
Frequently asked questions about Travel Insurance for Angina.
Is angina a pre-existing medical condition?
Yes. A pre-existing medical condition is any condition that you had prior to travelling, and this includes stable and unstable angina.
If you don’t take out Travel Insurance for angina, you run the risk of not being insured if a medical emergency were to happen or if you needed to cancel your trip because of an angina/heart attack. For example, you could face expensive medical bills for any treatment you may need while on holiday. Nobody wants to end up in that position, so make sure you’re covered before you travel.
Can you travel with stents in your heart?
If you have a coronary angioplasty, also commonly known as a stent, it is safe to fly soon after the procedure if there have been no complications. We recommend that you consult your doctor if you’re unsure whether it is safe for you to travel. Follow the questions online when declaring your condition, and you will see a list of insurers who can provide cover. If you would prefer to speak to one of our experts over the phone, call us today.
Can you fly with angina?
Yes, in most cases, people with angina can fly safely. However, it’s crucial to consult your doctor before flying to discuss your condition and any associated risks, especially if you have unstable angina. Your doctor can provide specific advice and may recommend measures to manage your angina symptoms during your flight. It is also essential to take out Travel Insurance with angina cover to ensure that you will be protected if anything related to your condition prevents you from flying or requires attention while you are away. Always inform your insurer about your angina diagnosis when applying for a policy to guarantee that any related medical treatment will be covered.
How can I manage my angina during a flight?
You can manage angina during a flight by:
- Taking your prescribed angina medication as directed.
- Using a nitroglycerin spray or tablet if you experience angina pain.
- Practising relaxation techniques, such as deep breathing or meditation.
- Making your flight experience as comfortable as possible, such as by selecting an aisle seat for easier mobility.
If you are worried about flying with unstable angina, make sure to consult your GP to address your worries and manage your symptoms when flying.
