Costs of heart condition travel insurance

Your age, the destination you’re travelling to and the duration of the trip all have an influence on the base rate of travel insurance.

The price is also likely to increase once you declare any heart conditions. This is essentially the cost of adding specialist cover on top of the standard coverage you’ll get from your usual travel insurance policy (cancellation, personal accident etc.).

Single trip travel insurance with heart conditions

For a one-off holiday, single trip travel insurance is the best option.

This type of policy suits those who only go away once or possibly twice a year. Your single trip policy will still usually cover you for a variety of things  - although, you’ll need a policy that includes specialist cover for your particular heart condition(s).

Then you can go and enjoy your holiday without any niggling doubts in the back of your mind about not having adequate insurance.

Annual travel insurance with heart conditions

If you have a heart condition and you travel multiple times per year - annual travel insurance with heart conditions cover is probably the best option.

This approach could prove to be more cost-effective in the long run. It saves you the time, effort and expense of taking out a new policy for each trip - and provides the specialist cover you need for the entire year.

As you get towards the end of the year, it’s likely that your insurance provider will give you the option to renew.
