London is one of the most visited cities in the world – it has something for everyone. From culture and history to food and nightclubs, the city has a lot to offer. Although life in London is full of excitement, even Londoners like to travel abroad every now and then. While most people travel to other European countries, many people will go further afield.
Whether you are travelling close to home or overseas, you never know when you might face a medical emergency, so it’s extremely important to take out travel insurance that covers the cost of medical repatriation.
Unfortunately, most people who buy travel insurance don’t read the small print of the policy to see what is covered and what is not – until there is an emergency. We have seen several patients and their family members become very upset after finding out that their insurance does not cover the cost of medical evacuation to London, or only partially covers it.
Medical treatment in a foreign country is not only expensive but it may not be of the same standard that you would receive at home. For years, we have been offering medevac services to people who live in London.
