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.

Heart disease travel insurance: The facts

Flying after surgery

You will need to speak to your GP after surgery to ensure it’s safe for you to fly once you’ve made a full recovery. Once you’ve been given the all clear, it’s important to take appropriate precautions to make sure you can travel as safely and as comfortably as possible to your destination.

Plan out your trip a few weeks in advance keeping in mind that although you may have fully recovered, it’s still important to take it easy.

For your own comfort, it might be best to arrange an aisle seat and priority boarding so that you are able to board the plane without having to fight the crowds. Having an aisle seat means you’ll be able to easily walk around the plane during the flight.

Getting up and walking around on a flight is especially important after heart bypass surgery as you may be more susceptible to Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). Wearing in-flight compression stockings is also advised to reduce the risk of DVT.

Always pack your heart medications in your hand luggage in case your hold bags become lost during your travels.

After a major operation, a relaxing holiday could be the best thing for your body to relax and recover. Take it easy and enjoy your time away. Remember to take appropriate health precautions as you would do at home – staying hydrated and eating healthily are essential to maintaining your wellbeing.
