Travelling as a CHD patient.
Having a congenital heart condition doesn’t mean you can’t travel, but it may require a bit of planning.
One aspect that can prove tricky is getting the right insurance in place.
It is essential to have travel insurance if you travel abroad. So make sure you can get this before you book.
Allow plenty of time to sort out travel insurance as it might take longer than usual if your insurer asks for further information about your heart condition.
Travel insurance can be quite expensive, so it’s worth shopping around for the best deal. But don’t be deterred; it’s not worth taking the risk.
