Atherosclerosis Travel Insurance

Specialist travel and holiday insurance for people diagnosed with atherosclerosis (thickening of arteries)

Travel insurance with atherosclerosis

We specialise in providing travel insurance for serious medical conditions, including all types of heart and circulatory conditions. We can provide cover if you have been diagnosed with atherosclerosis, more commonly referred to as thickening of arteries. Thickening or hardening of the arteries is caused by a build-up of plaque in the inner lining of an artery which is made up of fatty deposits, cholesterol, waste products and calcium. This condition can lead to higher risk of strokes, peripheral vascular disease and heart conditions such as angina. The most common forms of treatment, often prescribed as preventative medication for certain age groups, are cholesterol, blood pressure and blood thinning medication.

Travel and holiday insurance for circulatory conditions

Our insurance policies are designed to cover those with existing medical conditions and impose no upper age limit, giving you the freedom to travel to your hearts content. You will be required to complete a medical screening, during which you'll be asked relevant and concise questions which allows us to assess the severity of your condition and offer a competitive insurance quote.


Preparation is key to a relaxing and stress-free holiday! It's always advisable to speak to your doctor or consultant before travelling with a heart or circulatory condition as they are best placed to offer advice based on your individual medical history. Keep on the move during long haul flights, even just to stretch your legs which will keep your blood flowing. You may be advised to take additional blood thinning medication when travelling long distance, or even blood thinning injections if appropriate. You can tell us about your treatment during your medical screening.
