Our main concern is providing you with adequate cover for your personal needs and that's why we won't sell a policy unless we can cover you for everything including any pre-existing medical conditions. Regular travel insurance is not usually designed to include cover for a pre-existing medical condition, even if your prescription is only precautionary. This means that should you require medical attention or need to cancel for any reason that’s directly or indirectly linked to your blood pressure, a regular policy may well decline your claim. If you’re planning a holiday and have medication prescribed to control your blood pressure, it’s important to obtain cover including any pre-existing conditions and to declare this at the time of taking out travel insurance. This would ensure that if any complications were to arise either prior to or during your trip which are deemed related to the blood pressure, such as a stroke or heart condition then you would be covered for this.
Our prices are based on a person’s current state of health at the time of taking out a policy and our medical screening process gives us an indication of the severity of your condition. If you have high blood pressure and cholesterol or any of the related conditions, we will tailor a policy that specifically meets your individual needs, making sure you have the right level of cover for your trip.
When you go on holiday make sure you have significant medication to keep your blood pressure under control for the duration of travel.
