JS Insurance provides Single Trip and Annual Multi Trip Travel Insurance to those who have had a Heart Bypass.

A Heart Bypass is a surgical procedure designed to reduce the risk of death from heart disease.

Travel Advice:

If you have had a heart bypass, it is essential that you purchase travel insurance before leaving the country.

Usually, air travel does not pose a risk to someone who suffers from heart disease or has had a heart bypass.

There has been no evidence found to suggest that air travel may interfere with a Pacemaker. The usual time period that you must wait before flying after a heart bypass is three weeks. Complications such as angina or an unstable condition will mean that it will be a longer wait before you are safe to fly.

There are some things to consider if you are planning a holiday abroad after heart bypass surgery.

  • Do not travel if you are in an unstable condition.
  • Check with your physician before planning a holiday to make sure that you are well enough to travel.
  • Carry enough medication to last you the trip, plus extras in case of delays or emergency.
  • If you are travelling with someone, divide your medication between you, in case a bag gets lost
  • Carry medication in your hand luggage
  • Check with the airline's policy on carrying medication on you during the flight
  • Carry a recent prescription on you plus a letter from your doctor describing your condition
  • Carry a list of ICE contact numbers on you
  • Do not travel to areas that have extremes of climate that could put excess pressure on your heart
  • Plan a relaxing holiday that will not require you to over exert yourself
  • Do not do any strenuous activities on holiday that you are not already doing in your daily life When getting a travel insurance quote, you will be asked a number of questions to ensure you get the right quote for you.

These will include:

  • Have you ever been a smoker?
  • How long ago was your most recent procedure?
  • At any time BEFORE your most recent heart procedure, did you suffer a heart attack?
  • Have you had a heart attack at any time AFTER your most recent heart procedure?
  • Have you EVER had any symptoms of angina (eg chest pain, chest tightness) since your last procedure?
  • Can you always walk 200yds on the flat without becoming short of breath?
  • Have you been advised to take medication for high blood pressure?
  • Have you been advised to take medication to lower your cholesterol?

If you are travelling with others, we can include them on the policy even if they do not have any pre existing medical conditions.
