We regularly get asked about travel insurance. As stroke survivors ourselves we know how difficult it can be to find affordable insurance that covers you for the right things should you fall ill whilst on holiday. 

We answer some of the common questions about travel insurance after a stroke below.  

Can I get travel insurance after a stroke?
Life after a stroke can feel very different to how it did before, but that doesn’t have to stop you doing what you love. While recovery is unique for every stroke survivor, the opportunity to get away from it all on a holiday or trip to another country can provide some much-needed relaxation and enjoyment (just make sure you have the all clear from your doctor before you travel).

The good news? You can get travel insurance that’s designed specifically for people who have had strokes. It’s just a case of finding the right cover for you, which is where Medical Travel Compared can help.

How to find the right cover
We know that strokes come on suddenly and often without warning. So when you have a history of strokes or mini-strokes (TIA), it’s important you know that if one should happen while you’re away, you can get the medical help and support you need.

Without the right travel insurance policy in place, you could find yourself financially out of pocket due to expensive medical bills – not something you want to be worrying about in the lead up to – or during – your getaway.

Medical Travel Compared can save you time and hassle searching for travel insurance on lots of different sites, by helping you compare relevant policies from over 40 leading insurers – all in one place. All they’ll need are a few details about your medical history and past strokes, so they can find the right cover options for you.

What will be covered?
This will vary depending on the insurance provider, but you can usually expect to be covered for:

  • Emergency medical expenses
  • Repatriation
  • Cancellation and curtailment
  • Loss of medicine (including if it’s stolen)

How much will it cost?
The cost of travel insurance for stroke survivors will vary depending on your medical history and the severity of any long-lasting symptoms you have. Generally speaking, if it’s been three months since your last stroke and your condition is stable, your premiums should be relatively low.
