Exceptional value for money - all my medical conditions covered where other companies would not insure.

Specialist travel insurance for travellers who have had a stroke

If you've had a stroke or transient ischaemic attack ('mini stroke') in the past, getting travel insurance for a trip abroad can be difficult. Even if you've made a good recovery, many insurers will either turn you away or charge you a fortune to take out a policy. We're different. We can give you the same comprehensive cover as we give to all of our other customers. And we'll do it at a price that's fair.

So what do you get with a World First policy? For a start we'll give you a choice. We have a range of policies to suit you and your budget with anything from £1 million to £10 million worth of medical expenses cover. All our policies also include 24/7 access to an emergency medical assistance team and cover for the cost of replacing lost medication. If something serious happens and you need emergency medical care while you're abroad, we'll fly a UK paramedic out to you to make sure you get the best treatment possible. No medical insurance travels better.

Call one of our customer service team on 0845 90 80 161 if you would like to talk things through. Or see what great value our cover can be by completing our simple online medical screening.


"You get what you pay for, and that's good value"

"My wife and I have just taken out our third policy in four years with World First. They cover me in spite of having had cancer and a mild stroke, for a small extra premium. It's worth it for the peace of mind. What is more they paid up without a murmur when our flights were delayed for 24 hours two years ago. We will be going to them again, of course, when we need European travel insurance in the future. Two satisfied customers."
