Are you planning a trip abroad?
Buying travel insurance with a pre-existing medical condition, such as a stroke or atrial fibrillation, can be difficult and expensive. However, it is important to make sure that you have adequate financial protection against any medical emergencies whilst you are away. If you have ever suffered a stroke, you will be required to disclose this as a pre-existing medical condition.
We work with AllClear to offer specialist medical travel insurance to people affected by stroke.
AllClear Travel has been a specialist in the medical travel insurance market since 2000, and they can cover holidays for stroke survivors.
AllClear cover all ages and can offer cover to all destinations in 99% of cases. Both single trip and annual multi-trip policies are available.
When you purchase a policy from AllClear, whether single or multi-trip, Gold or Gold Plus, they'll make a contribution of up to 20%* of your premium to the Stroke Association (excluding IPT**). There's no additional cost to you, and they guarantee you cannot obtain a cheaper premium direct from AllClear on the same agreement.
You should note that neither Stroke Association, nor AllClear claim that your quotation will be the cheapest available in the insurance market. As with any other product or service, it can pay to shop around. However, AllClear believes that the cover they offer provides excellent benefits which will give the majority of customers peace of mind when they travel. As a specialist medical insurer, AllClear is also able to provide insurance cover where other insurers will not.
Will I need a fit-to-fly certificate?
Airlines might need a fit-to-fly certificate from your GP if you’ve recently been discharged from hospital or are recovering from an ongoing medical condition. Certificates can be needed for a wide range of conditions, so it’s best to check with your airline in advance.
Your certificate indicates that you’re fit to fly at the time of your trip. If you have a long-term condition, your certificate may need updating each time you travel. Check with your airline before your next trip to make sure.
The price of a fit-to-fly certificate varies depending on your GP surgery, but usually ranges from £20 – £40.
