Declaring high blood pressure on your travel insurance
Like with all medical conditions, declaring them is important, including your high blood pressure. Declaring your condition will ensure you have the right cover and protection when you set off on your trip, if the unexpected happens. By not declaring your condition, you’re putting yourself at risk should you need to make a claim that is related to your high blood pressure.
Our quick and easy process when buying your insurance means that we can offer you the best level of protection and reassurance for your holidays.

High blood pressure and safe flying
High blood pressure doesn’t need to limit your travels and jetting off abroad, and there isn’t any reason you won’t be able to fly. But, like any condition, it’s important to speak to your GP before your trip, ensuring you have the right medication and are fully prepared.
Top Tips for flying and high blood pressure
Flying can be daunting when you’re travelling with a medical condition, however, preparation is key, these tips will help give you the reassurance you need before you set foot onto the plane:
Ensure you accurately declare your medical condition and get travel insurance for high blood pressure sufferers.
Always pack your medication in your hand luggage, maybe even bring a reserve in case of emergency. Your Get Going policy will cover replacement of emergency prescription medication, if it is lost or stolen but it’s always best to have a reserve.
Leave for the airport with plenty of time to reduce the chance of high stress levels!
As a high blood pressure sufferer, you are more at risk of deep vein thrombosis. To minimise this risk while flying, either get up out of your seat, move around and have a stretch or try some seated exercises. Some of the exercises you might like to try include: Stretching out your legs and point your toes, rolling your shoulders back and forth, lifting up your feet to rotate your ankles
Avoid drinking alcohol on your flight, instead drink plenty of water.
And bring your own food. Airlines will likely provide you with or offer you in-flight snacks but these are likely to contain added salt, which is not good for high blood pressure sufferers.
