Aneurysm travel insurance
Aneurysm travel insurance covers you if you have lived with an aneurysm or have recently had surgery and wish to travel with peace of mind. This type of insurance covers you for medical emergencies, even those related to COVID-19, which is vital to prevent unexpected medical bills and give you the support you need if you have any medical problems while you are away.
Although an aneurysm can appear anywhere in the body, there are two types of aneurysms that are the most common: brain and aortic. Aortic aneurysms are three times more common in men than women, while brain aneurysms affect women more commonly than men.
With AllClear Travel, you can declare your specific type of aneurysm ie. aortic, abdominal or brain, and make sure that you have comprehensive aneurysm travel insurance to cover you just in case an emergency happens while you are away.

Will you be covered if you’re travelling during the COVID-19 pandemic?
There are three things to check so that you can make sure you're covered:
- You must be fit to travel
- The FCDO must NOT have advised against travel to your destination - check the FCDO travel advice
- You must follow the local government advice for your destination, checking and following their guidelines and entry requirements
You can then be covered for emergency medical expenses and cancellation for a positive diagnosis of COVID-19, with AllClear travel insurance with enhanced Coronavirus cover. Existing policyholders should read our Frequently Asked Questions if your trip is affected by Covid-19.

Tips for travelling with an aneurysm
Here are some tips for travelling with an aneurysm
- Avoiding high altitudes and extreme temperatures is a good idea when choosing your destination. Ask your doctor for advice on your limitations, and consider the standard of healthcare in the country you’re travelling to.
- Move around when flying. By taking a walk on the plane, especially on long flights, you reduce your risk of getting a clot. Making regular movements gets the blood moving. Flight socks may also be useful too.
- Avoid alcohol on your journey. It’s important to drink plenty of water, especially when flying. Air travel can be dehydrating and drinking alcohol can add to this. Minimise your intake of salty foods too – as they can also have a similar effect on your hydration.
- Bring enough medication. Make sure you have the medication you need for the duration of your trip and a little extra too. Having extra for emergencies or delays keeps you in control.
- You know the warning signs, so listen to your own body.
