Travel Insurance for Blocked Arteries | Staysure™

Getting the right travel insurance for blocked arteries

When living with blocked arteries, you may worry about your pre-existing medical condition interfering with the enjoyment of your holiday.

While we can’t promise that nothing will go wrong when on your travels, what we can offer you is the peace of mind in knowing you have our support if it does.

After all, things go wrong when on holiday more often than you might’ve thought, with 1 in 20 people claiming on their travel insurance in 2017.*

Isn’t it worth doing right?

Why do I need travel insurance for blocked arteries?

As with any pre-existing medical condition, making sure you’ve got proper travel insurance in place is the key to any happy holiday.

When living with blocked arteries, it’s important to declare it, and any other pre-existing medical conditions you may have on your travel insurance. That way, if the worst happens, you’ve got our support.

Common problems that arise on holiday can vary from lost passports or stolen luggage to a medical emergency where you need to be flown home by air ambulance. Whatever the unexpected, having proper travel insurance can save you not only the worry, but the strain on your life-savings.

With the right cover, travelling with blocked arteries can feel less daunting, knowing you’re covered properly by the nation’s Most Trusted Travel Insurance Provider.**

For us to offer you cover, we’ll first need you to complete our medical screening.

The medical screening process isn’t long-winded. Instead, we’ll just be asking you a few multiple choice questions about your blocked arteries and any other pre-existing medical conditions you may have, for us to understand how your medical history affects you.

It’s important that the answers you give us during the medical screening are as thorough and accurate as possible. Failure to disclose a pre-existing medical condition, or relevant details of your medical history, will affect the validity of your policy should you need to claim later down the line.

What questions will I be asked about blocked arteries during the medical screening?

To offer you cover, we’ll need to know what diagnosis you’ve been given for blocked arteries. After that, the types of questions you can expect about blocked arteries include:

  • Where are (or were) the affected arteries?

– Heart
– Leg or groin
– Head or neck
– Kidney
– Bowel
– Arm

  • Have you needed an amputation because of poor blood supply?

I’m awaiting surgery for my blocked arteries. Can you still cover me?

If you are awaiting surgery for your block arteries, we may still be able to offer you cover, but would have to exclude your pre-existing medical conditions from your policy. We can still cover you for travel delays, lost luggage and other problems that may arise during your holiday.

But unfortunately, we won’t be able to cover you for any claim relating to any of your pre-existing medical conditions.
