Congenital heart defects should not stop people travelling

For people living with pre-existing medical conditions, such as congenital heart defects, it can be difficult to find affordable travel cover, making holidays abroad more costly. But it does not have to be the case. Specialist travel insurance provider, goodtogoinsurance.com, offers sufferers competitive travel insurance, providing the right level of cover to help them relax and enjoy their trip.


Congenital heart defects are lethal birth defects of the heart that affect millions of newborn infants worldwide and claim thousands of lives every year. Eight of every 1000 children born in the UK will have some form of heart disease


Sarah Findlay of goodtogoinsurance.com says, "Living with a congenital heart defect does not have to mean the end of holidays abroad. All too often sufferers and their families face very high insurance premiums or cannot find the right level of cover for their specific needs. The result is that some sufferers may choose to travel without declaring their condition, leaving them with no protection if the worst should happen on their trip. People can find affordable travel insurance designed with their condition in mind at goodtogoinsurance.com. Everyone likes to relax and unwind with a foreign holiday and this is even more valuable when you are living with a pre-existing medical condition. We can screen anyone and provide travel insurance for most cases, helping more people enjoy foreign travel and benefit from quality medical support worldwide should they need it."


Goodtogoinsurance.com uses medical screening to help it provide appropriate travel insurance for pre-existing medical conditions, including congenital heart defects. It is easy and only takes a few minutes. Travellers simply complete a short medical screening questionnaire online or over the telephone and in almost all cases, can get an instant quote. There is no need to provide medical certificates or to contact any doctors, taking the stress out of getting travel cover.


goodtogoinsurance.com is supporting the Willow Foundation, a national charity, set up by Arsenal legend Bob Wilson and his wife Megs, which provides special days for seriously ill 16 to 40 year olds. 50p from every goodtogoinsurance.com policy sale goes straight to the charity.
