    Cardiomyopathy is a generic term for a disease which prevents the heart working properly due to the hardening, thickening or distending of its muscles. It takes four main forms: dilated cardiomyopathy, restrictive cardiomyopathy, arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

    Yes.  It is imperative that you are honest and declare your cardiomyopathy and any other pre-existing heath conditions for which you have received a diagnosis. If you don’t then your insurer may choose to refuse to settle any claim you later make on the very travel insurance policy you bought to protect yourself whilst travelling.

  • Will having Cardiomyopathy prevent me from getting travel insurance?

    No, whichever form of cardiomyopathy you have you should still be able to buy travel insurance. You might find though that whilst insurers will offer you cover, it may exclude this condition, or they may charge you more for your policy than someone without such a pre-existing medical condition. However, because Fish is a specialist broker we are able to source effective and highly competitive travel insurance for people who have been diagnosed with a variety of cardiac complaints.
