Travel Insurance for Stroke FAQs

Frequently asked questions about Travel Insurance for Stroke.

Can I get Travel Insurance after I have had a stroke?

Travel Insurance policies are available for hundreds of pre-existing medical conditions, including strokes or TIA. Finding Travel Insurance that covers your specific situation is essential. Our Travel Insurance specialists are experienced in helping customers who have suffered from a stroke or TIA find Travel Insurance that suits them.

Do I need to declare my stroke on my Travel Insurance?

If you do not declare a stroke or TIA with your insurance company, you could risk your Travel Insurance becoming void if a stroke-related medical issue were to occur while you are away. If you do not declare your stroke, you would not be covered if you had a stroke on holiday, but also anything related, such as a heart attack. To be fully prepared, make sure your Travel Insurance covers stroke or TIA.

Is a stroke a pre-existing condition?

A pre-existing medical condition is any illness or injury you had before taking out your Travel Insurance. If you have suffered from a stroke or TIA, this qualifies as a pre-existing medical condition.

Is Travel Insurance expensive after a stroke?

The average cost of Travel Insurance after a stroke or TIA may increase due to the potentially higher risk of needing to make a claim while travelling. However, it will also depend on your age, other medical history, where you’re going and for how long.

It also depends on how long ago your stroke was. As for full strokes, we will ask you if it was more or less than 3 months ago and how many strokes you have had in the last 6 months, which may affect the price.

Securing stroke Travel Insurance is vital as if something were to happen and you did not have adequate cover, you could end up paying out of pocket. We’ll compare prices from several insurers and offer bronze, silver and gold options on most policies. Secure your peace of mind.

Can you fly after a TIA (Transient Ischemic Attack) or Stroke?

Yes, you can generally fly after experiencing a TIA or stroke, but it’s essential to consult with your GP before making travel plans. The timing of your flight post-stroke or TIA will depend on your overall health, the severity of the episode, and any underlying medical conditions that might have contributed to the TIA. Your doctor will assess your situation and may recommend waiting a period before flying to ensure stability and manage any risks. You must declare these conditions as a pre-existing medical condition when securing Travel Insurance.

Do I need to inform my Travel Insurance company after a TIA?


Yes, you must inform your Travel Insurance company if you’ve had a TIA. Declaring a TIA is crucial because it’s considered a pre-existing medical condition. Not disclosing this information could invalidate your policy, leaving you without cover for any stroke-related medical issues while travelling or if you need to cancel your trip due to your condition. If you have already purchased your Travel Insurance and have suffered a TIA since, have spoken to your doctor and are still planning on travelling, you must update your policy. Informing your insurer allows them to provide a policy that accurately reflects your medical history and ensures you have the appropriate cover, should something happen.
