What is arrythmia?

Arrhythmia is when you heart adopts an abnormal rhythm, either beating too fast, too slow or irregularly. Its most frequently diagnosed form is atrial fibrillation (AF) which is a common cause of stroke. Symptoms of arrhythmia can include palpitations, dizziness, fainting, fatigue and shortness of breat. Treatments include medication, the fitting of a pacemaker or catheter and cardioversion, a procedure which restores the natural heart rhythm through electric shocks.

Do I need to declare if I have arrhythmia when buying travel insurance?

Yes. As with any pre existing health condition you must declare when getting a travel insurance quotation that you have arrhythmia otherwise your cover, or elements of it, may be rendered invalid. Should your condition be triggered whilst travelling then you may then find yourself liable for any medical bills and other costs which would otherwise be covered by your insurance. You should also take note of other policy limitations and exclusions such as the excessive intake of alcohol. This is of particular importance to arrhythmia sufferers as excess alcohol is a known trigger for the condition.

Will having an arrhythmia prevent me from getting travel insurance?

We are able to offer you travel insurance which will cover you should your arrhythmia require you to receive emergency medical treatment whilst abroad and/or cause you to cancel or curtail your trip.
