Travel Insurance for Stroke FAQ’s
Frequently asked questions about Travel Insurance for Stroke.
Can I get Travel Insurance if 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 cost of Travel Insurance may increase if you have suffered from a stroke or TIA. The reason for this is that there is a potentially higher risk of you 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.
