Stroke travel insurance

For stroke victims, the unpredictable nature of the condition can make the idea of travelling seem a little daunting. Holiday Extras' travel insurance policies are tailored to ensure that travellers with pre-existing medical conditions are able to holiday with peace of mind.

How do I declare my condition?

Declaring your condition is a simple process and takes only a few minutes to complete. Fill in the traveller details on the quote form, complete the declaration, and you will be automatically transferred to the medical screening.

You'll then need to answer a series of questions designed to provide us with the right information regarding your condition. We can then come up with a policy suited to cater for your needs as a stroke victim.

Medical screening takes place online, though if you prefer, this can also be done via our Kent-based insurance team by calling our free helpline.

Can you still fly after a stroke?

The recommended period of time to wait before travel will depend on the airline, with some carriers recommending up to 3 months. It's important to note that you cannot fly unless both a doctor and the airline have declared you fit to travel.
