If you’re thinking of travelling with high blood pressure, then it’s important to have the right travel insurance cover to protect you in the worst case scenario.
Travel insurance to cover high blood pressure does not need to be expensive; at Insurancewith we have a specific medical screening tool for people with medical conditions such as high blood pressure. If your blood pressure is well-controlled, in many cases there is no extra premium to pay to include high blood pressure cover on your travel insurance policy. You can also include cover for other medical conditions on this policy, these can be conditions you have a result of having high blood pressure or conditions that are completely separate.
You can currently cancel for FREE if you’ve only paid your trip deposit, meaning you don’t have to pay any excess if you’re only claiming for the cost of your holiday deposit*.
The short answer is, yes! Being diagnosed with a condition like high blood pressure shouldn’t mean you stop living your life, and that includes going away on holiday! Although high blood pressure often isn’t seen as a major medical condition (it’s so common, after all), it’s important to declare it on your travel insurance policy in case of any linked conditions. This ensures that should the worst happen, you know that you have that peace of mind that you’re covered and the insurer won’t void your claim because you missed it off of your policy!
Overall, finding travel insurance for any medical condition can be more expensive and more difficult than if you hadn’t declared any conditions.
At Insurancewith, we work differently to the rest of the market. Our founder, Fiona, found that often travel insurance policies for people with medical conditions either weren’t available or were prohibitively expensive – often costing more than the price of the holiday itself!
Although we ask a few more questions than other providers, getting the right kind of cover on your travels is important. Here at Insurancewith, we do more than just insurance. We’ll make sure you’re cared for from sale to claim.
There are a series of benefits which come with taking out one of our policies. Some of the most helpful for you include:
Our common-sense approach to medical travel cover has been recognised by industry peers and customers alike. We want to make it easier for more people to travel. Many of those we’ve helped talk about how they’d almost given up with the idea of getting away. We understand that getting away and knowing you’re protected should something unexpected occur has a real impact.
*Zero Excess on Deposit-Only Claims – Terms & Conditions
This offer only extends to deposit-only claims. Should you need to claim for the full cost of your holiday, the excess applicable on your main policy will still apply.
