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 angina

Angina travel insurance

  • Finding travel insurance for people who have angina can be difficult. Many standard travel insurance policies exclude pre-existing medical conditions. Make sure you look for a specialist angina travel insurance provider and declare your angina and any other medical condition. This means you can travel with complete peace of mind, knowing you are covered should you require medical treatment required for your angina while you are on holiday.
  • For travel in Europe, also make sure you have a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). This entitles you to reduced-cost, and sometimes, free medical treatment. It’s not an alternative to angina travel insurance though so be sure to arrange this in addition.

Medication for angina

  • Ensure you have sufficient angina medication (preferably double your requirements in case your medication is damaged or lost) for the entire duration of your trip. When travelling with angina medication, keep a list of both the generic and brand names of each, together with your dosages.
  • See your GP or angina specialist for information on how travel jabs can affect your condition. For example, vaccines may disrupt your blood glucose control as your body makes antibodies to fight the disease that you’ve been inoculated against.

Temperature, altitude and climate

  • Temperature can have an impact on your heart condition. Avoid extreme temperatures as this can put added strain on your heart. It’s also important to avoid high altitude destinations (over 2,000 metres) as this can make you breathless and can exacerbate your angina further. Your angina medication should be kept close to hand and should not be allowed to freeze.

Air travel and angina

  • You will need to check with your medical practitioner to determine if air travel is suitable for you. Heightened airport security in recent years means that it’s essential you plan ahead if you have angina in order to avoid running into last minute problems. If you’re crossing time zones, you may need to alter your angina medication regime. Discuss travelling with angina with your GP well in advance to allow for any adjustments to be made. It’s safe to use glyceryl trinitrate (GTN) spray while on the plane. Also, if you have a pacemaker, take your identification card with you.
