Stroke Travel Insurance
If you’ve suffered a stroke in the recent past, you may have encountered some difficulties obtaining travel insurance for that all-important break from the norm. Or maybe the price of the cover was so high it made the cost of travelling prohibitively expensive.
Premier Cover specialises in providing travel insurance to those with existing medical conditions and believes that everyone should have the right to travel and to obtain travel insurance at a fair price.
I’ve Had A Stroke. Can I Still Get Travel Insurance?
At Premier Cover we understand that questions about whether you can get covered and what the policy will cost can be a concern. Also, maybe the thought of answering a long list of questions about your condition is off-putting.
However, with Premier Cover there’s no need to worry as we’ve made obtaining Travel Insurance for those who’ve had a stroke as straightforward as possible.
Our quick and easy medical screening process is available online or if you prefer you can speak to one of our highly-trained and friendly agents for free. Either way, you’ll be asked some questions regarding your condition and we will then use your answers to make a quick decision, meaning you can be covered within minutes!
Do I Need An EHIC If I’ve Had A Stroke?
The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) entitles UK residents access to necessary, state-provided medical treatment at a reduced cost or free of charge, during a temporary visit in the European Economic Area (EEA) countries and Switzerland. The EHIC is valid for five years and it’s free.
As a valued Premier Cover policyholder, you will have no excess to pay when the EHIC is used.
Please remember to take your EHIC with you when you travel and check that it is still valid, as you’ll be required to present it when seeking medical treatment. Each traveller will require a card. The EHIC will cover the costs of managing existing medical conditions, maternity care or renal dialysis but it will not cover you if you are going abroad to receive medical treatment. And because it doesn’t cover aspects such as repatriation, it’s not a replacement for having a good travel insurance policy.

Travel Tips For Those Who’ve Had A Stroke
- You generally shouldn’t travel for the first two to three weeks after your stroke. This is the period where your symptoms will be at their worst, and other conditions relating to your stroke may arise. Make sure that you have consulted with your doctor before choosing to travel.
- Make sure that you have taken enough medication for the duration of your trip, plus a little extra just in case you hit any unexpected delays along the way.
- If you think that you may have problems getting around on your own, there are many travel companies that will be able to provide extra assistance. Make sure that you do your research so that you can make your travels as easy as possible.
