Stroke Travel Insurance
Having a stroke or transient ischaemic attack (mini stroke) can be life changing. However with rehabilitation many people can get back to leading a normal and independent life, which involves travelling abroad for holidays or work. However, travelling abroad can come with its own problems for stroke patents, particularly when trying to find affordable travel insurance with stroke cover.
At Insurancewith we recognise the beneficial effects a holiday can have on the rehabilitation of stroke patients and to this end have created a specific stroke travel insurance policy at affordable premiums. We offer cover for people who have had all types of strokes, such as:
- TIA (mini stroke)
- Childhood stroke
As we have said, a holiday after having a stoke can be very beneficial, particularly as it gets you away from the hospital routine, which is very familiar to anyone who has a medical condition, a holiday can be seen as the first step to regaining your old life back. Therefore it’s important to make sure that you have the correct holiday insurance policy in place, so you can relax and enjoy your much needed holiday and if something does go wrong the cover is there to take care of everything for you.

“ I came to you as my first port of call and couldn’t be happier. I would recommend your company to others.“
If you’ve recently had a stroke, or whether you experienced one years ago, getting away on holiday might be just the thing you need to help finish your recovery process. Going away with friends or family can create some great memories and experiences, and having a stroke shouldn’t prevent you from going on your trip or visiting dream destinations.
However, having had a stroke it’s important to travel with an adequate medical travel insurance policy which offers cover for your condition. Some travel insurance companies are reluctant to provide cover for customers with a medical history of stroke because they think they pose a bigger risk and are more likely to fall ill whilst away. Should you fall ill or have to cut short your trip due to either illness related to your condition, or receive treatment whilst you’re away, you could be faced with expensive medical bills. With travel insurance, these costs are taken care of.
Insurancewith offer policies to suit any pre-existing medical condition, including cover for customers who have had a stroke. Our award-winning medical screening programme allows us to ask questions relevant to your condition instead of just asking you to tick boxes, this process enables us to offer you a fair and affordable quote.
All of our policies include access to our 24-hour emergency assistance helpline which is open 365 days a year and is managed by experienced doctors, assuring you that should you have to call in the event of a medical emergency, you’ll be guided and advised by people who have vast experience in this field.
