Heart attack travel insurance
Every day in the UK, 530 people will go to hospital due to a heart attack. If you’ve had a heart attack, and are one of the approximately 7 million people living with cardiovascular disease, you may be wondering how to plan for your next holiday. The important thing is to make sure that you’re fully covered – just in case of any medical emergency while you’re away. Our heart attack travel insurance fully covers your medical conditions and medication.
Tips when travelling after a heart attack
- Talk to your doctor about your trip and find out if they have any specific advice that you should follow while you’re on holiday. They have the best understanding of your heart condition, and they can let you know of any precautions you should – such as getting up from your seat at least every two hours to improve blood circulation.
- If you have an implanted cardiac defibrillator, you should request a hand search at security if possible. There have been no reports of ICD dysfunction caused by metal detectors, but researchers say there could be a theoretical risk.
- When you are on a special diet for your heart problems at home, try to follow your diet as much as possible on your trip. If you have heart issues, eating too much salt can increase your risk of symptoms – so avoid excessively salty foods while travelling.
- If you experience heart symptoms, get emergency medical help right away. You will then need to contact the medical emergency assistance company as detailed in your medical travel insurance policy. You can find the correct telephone number to call for your policy here: Medical Emergency contact numbers.
- If there are any changes to your health before you travel, including any new medication, please contact our Customer Care Team on 01708 339029 and we’ll be happy to update your cover.
