The Importance of High Blood Pressure Travel Insurance

‘I don’t have high blood pressure anymore, so why do I need to declare it?

This is a common question our agents get asked by people whose blood pressure is under control with medication. Point taken, your blood pressure is no longer raised but if you did experience problems on holiday as a result of blood pressure or the medication prescribed for it, and you haven’t told your insurer, it’s highly likely you will be left to settle the medical bill and any other costs incurred, like flights if you are unable to return home when planned. Travel insurance is all about protection, so it's worth mentioning that you have high blood pressure so that you have it included in your cover, just in case the unthinkable happens. 



Insure your travelling companions on the same Freedom policy and they will be fully protected too.

High Blood Pressure Travel Insurance at Fair Prices

We base our travel insurance quotes on a person's current health status, so it’s unlikely that you will be charged extra if your blood pressure is stable and well managed or if you are prescribed precautionary medication based on age. We also appreciate blood pressure and cholesterol medication often comes hand in hand.

For those that have had a recent high blood pressure diagnosis or a recent change in medication, there will be an additional cost, but rest assured our prices are competitive and will provide the right level of cover for your individual circumstance.



Avoid any unexpected surprises when it comes to claiming on your travel insurance policy and declare your diagnosis of high blood pressure when you take out a policy with us.
