    Basically blood pressure conditions fall into two camps: where your pressure is high (known as hypertension) and where it is low (hypotension).  If your blood pressure reading is over 120 over 80 and less than 140 over 90 then that is within the normal range (to learn more about blood pressure readings click here). If you have high blood pressure you are at greater risk of suffering a cardiac condition such as a stroke or heart attack.

    Yes, as with any pre-existing health condition you should notify your insurer if you have hypertension. If you don’t then you could leave yourself liable to significant emergency medical and associated costs should you fall ill abroad as your insurer may decide that by not declaring open and honestly you invalidated your cover.

    No. Whilst some insurance policies will exclude as standard hypertension (and hypotension) along with other pre-existing medical conditions, you will be able to secure travel insurance to cover your blood pressure complaint from a specialist like Fish – and offer you a very competitive premium for annual, single trip, Worldwide and European policies. As high blood pressure is more prevalent among older people you might also be pleased to hear we can offer travel insurance for over 65s.
