High Blood Pressure Travel Insurance

High blood pressure is a common condition that affects millions of adults across the UK. When managed properly it’s not something that will stop you from travelling.

If you're planning on taking a trip, it's crucial that you get a travel insurance policy tailored to your specific needs. If you need to seek medical treatment while you're away, and neglect to take out a travel insurance policy, you could be left to pay the medical bills in their entirety (which could run into thousands).

I Have High Blood Pressure. Can I Still Get 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, with Premier Cover there's no need to worry as we've made obtaining Travel Insurance for high blood pressure 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 High Blood Pressure?

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 With High Blood Pressure

  • Some extreme sporting activities such as skydiving or scuba diving will require a medical certificate before you are able to take part so contact your physician beforehand if you are planning on taking part in any of these types of activities.
  • Travelling by plane can be an experience that some find to be very stressful. It may be worth you turning up early when checking-in as this can help to avoid queues.
  • Make sure that you have taken enough medication to last for the duration of your entire trip, plus a little extra just in case you hit any unexpected delays along the way. It’s also good practice to keep a list of the medications that you are taking on you. And leave medications in their original packaging as opposed to unmarked containers.
