We encourage our clients to plan ahead so they can take advantage of early bird pricing on airfares and hotels. The travel component is important to take into consideration when choosing to go abroad for Medical by combining the surgery cost, and the trip cost will help determine the viability of travelling for surgery and budgeting purposes.
Often people planning to go to Thailand or Mexico for a medical treatment plan to do so by taking holiday leave from work. You need to be realistic that you are firstly having surgery and secondly recovering in a beautiful location you should not be expecting a holiday along with a medical procedure is not wise. While you want to stay the required recommended recovery it’s always encouraged to have a buffer of a few extra days for recovery (and consider this your “Holiday”), you should not plan to do much more.
There is no requirement to have Meditravel do your travel bookings; you may book your own or part travel as we understand that our clients can be very tech savvy and happy to book their flights and or hotel. We won’t abandon you because you want to book your own travel we even help to ensure that you book the best value for money packages. You can even combine web airfares with our Meditravel exclusive hotel pricing.
Even in the circumstance, you book your flights and hotel we will still cover your airport transfers and to and from the hospital. To enable us to schedule those we do need to obtain a copy of the travel itinerary at least two weeks before departure so we can book your transfers
Note: Before completing DYI travel please check you are staying for the recommend recovery time to avoid having surgery canceled. Ensure a copy of itinerary is sent to your client manager 2 weeks prior to your departure.
Having sent clients to Thailand for 10 + years successfully, we understand that some people are more comfortable having surgery overseas than others to address this we offer Group Surgery escorted Tours. Group Surgery Tours to Thailand are held four times throughout the year with a Maximum of 12 surgery clients on each tour.
Each group has one of our consultants travel with them and are there to assist during consultations, surgery, hospital stay and through recovery. The escorts that go with our surgery group tours have been through surgery in Thailand; they will know exactly how your feel and what you need when you need it.
