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.
