Pacemaker Travel Insurance:

A pacemaker is a device that is put in the body to monitor and regulate the heart beat.

Travel advice:

If you suffer from a heart condition and have had a pacemaker there are some things to take into consideration before travel.

There is nothing to suggest that air travel should unduly affect a pace maker. However, alert the airline of your condition prior to travel, as it is possible that the pacemaker may set off the metal detector alarms in security.

If you have a pacemaker, when getting a quote for travel insurance, you will be asked a number of questions:

  • Have you had an ablation procedure? (Uses a wire to destroy abnormal heart tissue)
  • How many unplanned hospital visits for your irregular heartbeat have you had in the last 12 months?
  • Do you have any further investigation or treatment planned?
  • Are you on medication to thin the blood (not including aspirin) which requires regular blood tests?
  • Has your heart rhythm ever caused collapses, faints or blackouts?
  • Have you had any of the following procedures?
  • Have you ever been told that the arteries in your heart are blocked or narrowed?
  • Have you ever had a heart bypass, an angioplasty or a coronary stent?
  • Have you ever had angina and/or a heart attack?
  • Have you been prescribed any treatment for heart-related breathlessness or ankle swelling?
  • Have you ever had a stroke or a mini-stroke (TIA)?
