Hernia Travel Insurance

Specialist travel and holiday insurance if you have been diagnosed with a hiatus hernia, incisional hernia or inguinal hernia

Hernia travel and holiday insurance

There are many different types of hernia, such as inguinal, incisional, and hiatal/hiatus hernias with the only effective treatment being a surgical repair. The need for surgery will depend on the severity of your symptoms, and some people never require any form of treatment. Whatever the diagnosis and treatment plan, It’s So Easy Travel Insurance are here to give you the peace of mind that you are fully covered whilst travelling abroad. Once you have completed a medical screening to declare your condition, whether over the phone or during our online quote journey, you will be covered for emergency medical expenses should anything unforeseen happen during your trip or if you need to cancel your plans due to a change in your medical circumstances.

Travelling abroad with a hernia

According to a clinical study, inguinal hernias account for 75% of abdominal wall hernias, with a lifetime risk for men at almost 30%! We’ve spoken to and insured hundreds of people who have been diagnosed with hernias and have made sure our medical questionnaire is relevant and concise. We will ask whether you’ve had surgery, and if so, whether it was successful or if you have any ongoing complications which allows us to offer a competitive premium based on your circumstances.


If you have a hernia, you’re probably aware that prolonged periods of sitting can cause discomfort. Unfortunately, this is commonplace when travelling by air. It’s recommended to discuss your travel plans with your GP or consultant before you set to the sky, as they are best placed to give you appropriate medical advice. Standing, or taking a short walk during the flight is key to release any pressure on your abdominal wall.
