How to make medical repatriation from Spain to the UK less stressful

Its beaches, vibrant cities, historic buildings and lively culture make Spain one of the popular holiday destinations for the British. From carnivals and festivals to sailing and skiing, there is so much to see and enjoy in the country. Since so many people visit Spain from the UK, there is a high demand for medical repatriation to the UK. Most travel insurance policies cover the cost of a medical flight if the need arises, but each year it’s surprising to see the number of people who forget to buy travel insurance.

There may be many reasons for not buying travel insurance. The most common reason is that people believe that nothing bad will happen to them. Travellers on a budget often skip on travel insurance. Others are just blissfully unaware of the potential problems that could arise on their trip – and the amount of money they may have to pay for a medical flight. 

How To Make Medical Repatriation From Spain To UK Less Stressful

When do you need medevac services from Spain to the UK?

We would love to think that everyone will have a wonderful holiday in Spain and return home safely, but the internet is full of horror stories about people who have accidents or get ill on holiday. What if you break your leg skiing in Baqueira-Beret or dislocate your knee snowboarding in Sierra Nevada? You may need weeks of medical care and you may not be fit enough to take a commercial flight home.

Nobody likes the idea of spending weeks in a hospital bed in Spain. People want to return home to convalesce in comfort and in familiar surroundings. However, things can get complicated if you don’t have travel insurance that covers the cost of an air ambulance to take you home.

This is where Medical Air Service steps in to rescue you. We can arrange medical flights from Spain to the UK at short notice.

The best thing is, our flights are affordable and each one is tailored to a patient’s specific needs.
