Arrhythmia travel insurance
Why it’s vital to cover your heart rhythm problems
No one likes to think that something may happen while travelling abroad, but being prepared with a comprehensive travel insurance gives you and your loved ones the peace of mind to relax and enjoy a foreign holiday just the way it should be!
Our arrhythmia travel cover makes it easy for travellers with heart conditions to get the protection they need. We can provide cover from angina to cardiomyopathy and from heart attack to aortic stenosis and many more kinds of heart conditions.
Don’t get stung with expensive cancellation & medical costs
Emergency medical care abroad can be hugely expensive and run into thousands of pounds. With our arrhythmia insurance policy, you’ll automatically be covered for up to £5 million of emergency medical expenses (£10 million with Super Duper). You’ll also have 24 hour access to an emergency medical assistance team, wherever you are in the world.
Our specialist travel insurance also gives you cover for cancellation or curtailment/loss of holiday. Should you need to cancel your holiday due to your arrhythmia, Free Spirit provides a minimum level of cover on the Super policy or £2,500 in respect of your unused travel and accommodation costs which you have already paid for or are contracted to pay and where you are unable to recover from any other source.*

Travelling abroad with a heart problem will always be a concern however, by ensuring you are properly prepared will allow you to relax and have an enjoyable break. Make sure you check with your doctor that you are fit to travel and more so, to your holiday destination. Remember not everywhere has such reliable hospital resources as the UK. Make sure you find out where the nearest medical centre is to your accommodation and the Insurers emergency telephone number, should the worst happen.
In the event your flight may be delayed on your return home, make sure you have enough medication to see you through until you get home and try not to pack it in your hold baggage, just in case it gets lost. Always keep well hydrated with water, not alcohol, as this will help to keep your high blood pressure down.
