Scenic landscapes, soulful big cities, historic places and romantic towns make Germany the seventh most visited country in the world. Every year crowds of travelers from the Netherlands, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Switzerland travel to Germany for its great outdoor locations, shopping opportunities, cleanliness, nightlife and food. While one German out of four prefers holidays at home given the many locales to explore, others enjoy taking foreign trips to countries like Spain, France, Italy, Croatia, Turkey and Greece.
Ideally, we all wish for domestic and foreign vacations to start and end with great memories, but the real-world sometimes greets us with many unpleasant surprises. For instance, If you break a leg while hiking or fall sick in a foreign destination, you may need quick emergency medical repatriation to Germany. As such, it’s vital to know exactly what to do should you or your loved one require swift medical repatriation back to Germany.
In times of need, it can be disheartening when your insurance company shows you a hidden clause and says air ambulance costs cannot be covered. This justifies the need to always lookout for the finer details of your travel insurance clauses regarding air services, both when flying domestically or on foreign grounds and specifically checking your medical evacuation and repatriation insurance policies when picking an insurance company.
This makes sure your family has enough cover required for medical repatriation if needed.
However, if the worst happens, whether you have insurance or you are stranded on foreign land with insurance that does not cover the cost of a medical flight, Medical Air Service can assist you as medical repatriation back to Germany does not rely solely on your insurance. We will make sure you get back home to your family and trusted medical care provider at the earliest, whether or not your insurance covers medical repatriation.
