Getting the right cover to travel with high blood pressure

Having high blood pressure shouldn’t stop you from travelling as much as you want to.

We know that it can be hard enough to find the right holiday without struggling to find travel insurance for any medical conditions you may have. That’s why we consider all medical conditions for cover, including high blood pressure, so you can travel worry-free.

We specialise in travel insurance for pre-existing medical conditions, so we know that one case of high blood pressure is not identical to another. We appreciate that high blood pressure can affect people of all ages, not just the over 50s, and that the condition can affect people in different ways.

This is why we have our medical screening process, so we can make sure that we can build cover for your high blood pressure, and any other conditions you may have, to meet your individual needs.

It's not just travel insurance, it's travel reassurance!

When you’ve got Avanti Travel Insurance, if something does go wrong - we'll always aim to put it right. Good to know, especially if you’re travelling with pre-existing health conditions.

That’s Travel Reassurance!

Do I need to declare my high blood pressure?

Yes, it’s essential for you to declare having high blood pressure, and any other pre-existing medical conditions you may have, when getting travel insurance. Even if your high blood pressure is under control through medication we still need to know about it to give you the appropriate cover for your needs.

If you didn’t tell us about a condition when getting cover and needed to make a claim for treatment for an undeclared condition when you’re abroad, we would not be able to cover any costs related to this.

We want you to be able to enjoy your holidays without worrying that you’re not covered for any conditions that you might have. By telling us about any medical conditions you have we can create cover that is bespoke to your needs, so that if you need to make a claim you should be covered.

What types of questions will I be asked about my high blood pressure?

As part of our medical screening process we will need to ask you some of the following questions about your high blood pressure to see how we can cover you:

  • Have you been advised to take medication for high blood pressure?
  • How many medicines does your doctor advise you to take for high blood pressure?
  • Has your dose been increased or have you been prescribed a new tablet in the last six months?
  • Have you been advised to take medication to lower your cholesterol?

Is my high blood pressure covered by my European Health Insurance Card (EHIC)?

If you are planning a holiday or trip to Europe we advise that you get an EHIC.

The EHIC is free and entitles you to free healthcare in most European countries when you use their state healthcare. Before you travel, check that your destination is covered by EHIC, so that if you need any treatment for your high blood pressure, or other conditions, during your trip you can be prepared.

Your EHIC is not the same as having good travel insurance for your medical conditions and won’t cover you for things that go wrong, such as having to cancel your holiday. That’s where your travel insurance with pre-existing medical cover comes in. What your EHIC can do is reduce your medical costs where subsidised healthcare is available.

If you can use your EHIC and you have had to pay a subsidised fee for your healthcare during your holiday, we will remove the excess fee for your medical emergency claims.

My family don’t have pre-existing medical conditions, should they be on the same policy if we are travelling together?

You might think that it makes more sense to have a separate policy to your family, if you are the only person travelling with pre-existing medical conditions, such as high blood pressure. Did you know that there are actually great benefits to travelling together on one travel insurance policy?

Having all of the family on one policy for your holiday means that if you needed to cancel the holiday due to a medical emergency you should all be covered to get your money back. So buying your travel insurance together gives you and your family the added protection if you do need to claim back the full cost of your holiday.

I’ve already purchased high blood pressure cover; do I need to keep you updated if my medical conditions change?

Yes, it’s essential for you to keep us updated if you are diagnosed with any new medical conditions so we can include these within your cover. You will need to let us know about any new conditions before you travel in order to be covered for them.

You can update your medical conditions on your policy by calling our Customer Services Team who will be happy to help you.
