I have a Pacemaker. Can I still get Travel Insurance?

Posted in General on 1 May 2020

At Able2Travel we are often asked: ‘can I get travel insurance with a pacemaker?’

If you have a pacemaker fitted then there is a good chance that Able2Travel Travel Insurance will be able to provide you with cover for your holidays and trips.

On average, 39,000 people in the UK have a Pacemaker fitted each year. That’s almost 760 per week, so obtaining travel insurance when you have a Pacemaker fitted shouldn’t be difficult and shouldn’t be a reason to stop enjoying your love of travel.

A vital factor when obtaining Travel Insurance is the need to be completely honest with all and any pre-existing medical conditions you have, including having a Pacemaker fitted and answer any questions you are asked to the best of your knowledge. Otherwise, you may later discover that your Travel Insurance policy is invalid and you may personally be liable for your medical expenses should the unforeseen happen on your trip, which could cost tens of thousands of pounds. That’s where Able2Travel Pacemaker Travel Insurance steps in to help

Don’t forget your Travel Insurance

Don’t forget or overlook your travel insurance needs. Many travel insurers may not be able to offer extensive travel protection if you have a pre-existing medical condition, such as having a Pacemaker, which could end up costing you should the unforeseen happen. But that’s where Able2Travel Travel Insurance can step in to help.
