Standard travel insurance tends to exclude cover for pre-existing medical conditions, and this can include high cholesterol. Although high cholesterol itself doesn't usually cause any symptoms, you will need to disclose it when applying for travel insurance to ensure that you are protected for your trip against any possible related conditions. For travel in Europe, you should also ensure that you have a valid European Health Insurance Card (EHIC).
A travel insurance policy which covers high cholesterol offers you protection in the event of any complications whilst on holiday. Cancellation cover would mean that if you were deemed unfit to travel before your holiday, for reasons relating to complications of high cholesterol or its declared related conditions, you would be entitled to make a claim. Please be aware that each insurer offers different levels of cover, and you should double check the cover limits of the policy before buying.
Our medical screening makes it easy to compare travel insurance that can cover pre-existing medical conditions. When entering your details you will be asked some questions relevant to your condition, any conditions related to it, and any treatment or medication you have received. Please ensure that you declare if you have any medical conditions associated with high cholesterol, such as high blood pressure, stroke, or heart conditions. The answers you provide allows us to assess your current health and tailor travel insurance quotes that will provide suitable cover for you.
