Life in the Little Red Dot may sometimes get too stressful. It’s no surprise that Singaporeans love to travel, whether it’s a long vacation in Paris or just a weekend in Bangkok to recharge, a recent survey showed that people in Singapore took an average of 5.2 vacations in one year. While it’s great to travel around the world, home is the place everyone wishes to return to at the earliest when sick. This blog explains why there have been so many medical repatriation Singapore cases in the last 12 months.
Whether you are travelling in Asia or planning a trip to western countries, it’s always important to ensure your safety. There could be various unseen reasons that can suddenly make a perfectly healthy person fall sick. The change of weather, an unfortunate accident or a stroke may be some of the reasons to cut short a trip and look for an air ambulance service to come back home safely.
To ensure that you are not stuck in a foreign land in case of a medical emergency, it is imperative that you must get travel insurance that covers medical evacuation services. This is one of the essential things to consider before leaving for a holiday from Singapore. Many insurance companies only partially cover medical flights in case of an emergency, so make sure you read the fine details of their insurance policies carefully.
However, if your insurance does not cover medical repatriation to Singapore, don’t lose heart. You can contact Medical Air Service at any time, regardless of your insurance cover. Our team is always available to help you out in case of a medical emergency.
