    It is essential when booking a holiday that you make sure that you have good travel insurance that includes repatriation (returning to the UK for a sick child and a parent). Call a variety of different insurance companies to get the best policy and price. You can try specialist companies that deal with pre-existing medical conditions, however some high street insurers can also insure people with congenital heart conditions.

    We have a list of travel insurance companies that our members have used (linked below). We cannot recommend any particular company, this is purely a guide and we must stress that you need to make sure your policy meets your needs. Even if they do not ask, make the insurance company aware of your child’s heart condition.

    Please take the time to give them a follow and get involved in the discussion, as cardiac families your input is incredibly valuable.
