Travel Insurance designed for you

Heart Attack Travel Insurance

Cardio vascular diseases affect almost seven million people in the UK. If you have suffered a heart attack recently and have a holiday planned in the near future, you may have found it difficult to procure travel insurance.


Here 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, there’s no need to worry as we’ve made obtaining Travel Insurance for heart attacks 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’ll be covered within minutes!


What Is A Pre-existing Medical Condition?

A pre-existing medical condition is any illness or underlying condition that you are aware of prior to taking out your travel insurance policy. Although emergency medical treatment is covered by our policies, we can’t cover conditions that you neglect to inform us about, and this could result in your claim being rejected. As such it’s best to declare all conditions at the time of purchase and in many cases there may be no additional premium to pay. If you are unsure about anything, please give our friendly team a call on 0800 298 1112 and they will answer any questions you may have and guide you through the process too.

Do I Need An EHIC If I Have Had A Heart Attack?

The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) entitles UK residents access to necessary, state provided medical treatment, during a temporary visit in the European Economic Area (EEA) countries and Switzerland - at a reduced cost or free of charge. The EHIC is valid for five years.


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 are required to present it for medical treatment. Each traveller will require a card. The EHIC will cover the costs of managing pre-existing medical conditions, maternity care or renal dialysis but it will not cover you if you are going abroad to receive medical treatment.


Travel Tips For Those Who’ve Had A Heart Attack

  • Try to pick a relaxing location to travel to, as well as avoiding extreme temperatures as this can put unnecessary strain on your heart. Try to avoid locations where you will be staying at high altitudes too.
  • If you are travelling by plane, make sure that you have a letter from your GP explaining any medications or a pacemaker that you may need to take onto the plane.
  • It’s generally advisable to keep a list of all medications that you are currently taking, and keep all medications in their original packaging as opposed to unmarked containers. This will make it easier to identify the correct course of treatment if you need to seek medical care while you’re away. It’s also advisable to take more medication than the length of your holiday, just in case you hit any unexpected delays along the way.
