Travel onsurance

Hi. New to here but can anyone recommend a travel insurance company with good reviews. Had a stroke august; sort of fully recovered apart from medication giving me muzzy head & tinnitus!

@Joyali Hi & welcome to the forum. Sorry you’ve had cause to join us. Sounds like you’re making good progress.

I used LV for travel insurance. I’ve always found them to be good. I think the Stroke association recommend All Clear & you can always try somewhere like medical travel compared who Different Strokes (a charity for younger stroke survivors) recommend.

Hope you enjoy your trip.

Best wishes

Hello and welcome to our forum.

I always use a comparison website so that you can adjust the policy to suit your needs at a price you want to pay. The companies are usually given a rating with regard to customer satisfaction. I find this is usually the easiest way to find a policy that suits you.

Hi @Joyali

Thank you for reaching out on our forum with your question about travel insurance for stroke survivors. It’s great to hear that you’re planning to travel, and it’s important to have the right insurance in place for peace of mind.

I’d highly recommend checking out the information we have on our website regarding travel insurance. We’ve partnered with AllClear Travel Insurance, a company that specialises in providing cover for people with pre-existing medical conditions, including those who have had a stroke.

You can find more information about this and get a quote by visiting AllClear Travel Insurance for Stroke Survivors. They offer a range of policies to suit different needs and trips, so it’s worth taking a look to see what fits best for your travel plans.

Do remember, it’s always good to compare different policies and make sure you’re fully aware of what is and isn’t covered. If you have any more questions or need further assistance, please feel free to reach out. Safe travels!

I can’t add anything to the factual side because I would have highlighted different strokes and the stroke association has having hookups with insurance companies

But I will just add my hello and welcome :slight_smile:

@Joyali I found Admiral to be reasonable. As someone with an ischaemic stroke I felt confident to travel after a few months. Having had a bog standard £60 annual multi-trip policy with Admiral I shopped around. For my needs I found All Clear extortionate at over £500 and with limitations on no. of trips, destinations and activities (and no of course I wasn’t water-skiing!). Yes the package was more comprehensive but I wasn’t going to be carrying an oxygen tank on the plane or requiring specialist equipment. So after a few exhausting interrogations about every square inch of my medical life history I opted for Admiral again and they came in at just under £200 from memory. The good news I understand is that your risk profile goes down after a year or two. Painful but necessary :roll_eyes:

Thank yoi for sharing your travel insurance story. I’ve never looked at Admiral but will add them to my list for future.

Thank you Ann @Mrs5K that’s very kind of you. I think I may be in a permanent state of saying “I’m getting there” or “Thanking my lucky stars I’m here”. I’m not sure when that will end but certainly travel insurance is yet another reminder!

Hi @RedFraggle I think we can relate to those feelings too. I feel very lucky I came through it but nowhere near there yet…so definitely class as I’m getting there.

Hope you’re having a good weekend xx
