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:
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.
Insurancewith travel insurance policy for stroke patients gives you the cover you need at an affordable premium for that well-deserved trip. Each case is individually assessed and underwritten through our bespoke medical screening system; therefore our policies ensure award-winning cover, with the following range of specialised policy benefits looking after you:
Our trained medical screening advisors are on hand to offer confidential friendly advice on our range of policies, they will also offer a specific risk assessment of your condition and a tailor-made policy at an affordable premium.

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*.
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.
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.
