Thousands of heart attack travel insurance policies are sold by Avanti Travel Insurance every year. A heart attack, known medically as a myocardial infarction or MI, is damage caused to the heart muscle due to a lack of blood supply to the heart and is usually caused by a blood clot or blocked artery.

Men are more likely to suffer a heart attack than women. The risk of a heart attack can be reduced by quitting smoking, losing weight, exercising more and a low-fat diet.

According to the NHS, the time to wait before travelling after having a heart attack depends on how likely you are to have another one. Those at low risk can travel within a matter of days after suffering a heart attack whereas those at a high risk may need to get the all clear from their GP or surgeon. When travelling abroad, it is always advised to get a letter from your doctor briefly specifying your procedures and treatment to date; and the medication that you are required to travel with. As with all other conditions, it is also advised to take extra medication for if you lose some or are delayed for any amount of time.

Avanti Travel Insurance can provide low cost specialist medical travel insurance for heart conditions, subject to terms and conditions. By answering a short series of questions, we are able to tailor holiday insurance for heart conditions around your specific medical needs.
