Travellers that have had a stroke, mini-stroke or a TIA can get expert medical travel insurance through Avanti Travel Insurance.

Having a stroke is the result of a disruption of the blood supply to the brain, which causes a starvation of oxygen and nutrients, and results in possible loss of full functionality. If the blockage clears of its own accord, the condition is known as a transient ischaemic attack (TIA) and does not normally cause any long-lasting brain damage.

Individuals are affected differently after having had a stroke but travel insurance for stroke patients can cater for all. Travel arrangements should reflect the severity of the symptoms of the stroke, mini-stroke or TIA, but should not stop you from travelling and having a great holiday.

Avanti Travel Insurance understands that stroke patients are usually advised not to fly within two weeks of having a stroke, so make sure that you get the go-ahead from your doctor before you go and purchase travel insurance for stroke sufferers. It is also important to do simple exercises if you are travelling on a long-haul flight to avoid deep vein thrombosis (DVT) which is caused by long periods of inactivity. See The Stroke Association’s “Holidays after Stroke” section for more handy travel tips.

If you would like a quote for stroke travel insurance, or to purchase a TIA medical travel policy, call our award-winning contact centre for free. Alternatively, you can visit the quote section of our website for a safe, simple and easy-to-use form to get a no-obligation quote.
