Is Medical Tourism Something I Can Do Alone? Should I Take a Companion?
Although there is much to be said about traveling on your own, we’ve found that medical tourism is most enjoyable (and successful) when you have a travel companion. This is especially true if you’re about to undergo extensive surgery or treatment. Having a trusted friend or family member handle the paperwork, liaison between you and hospital staff, and keep you company will help remove some of the potential stress inherent both in travel and healthcare.
Obviously, adding a second person to the trip increases the cost considerably. We feel that the extra expense is worth it, but ultimately, the decision is yours.
