Patient repatriation from abroad – the costs involved

Many people worry about the costs of a medical repatriation from abroad. If you are wondering which costs you will will be responsible for, we can produce a precise cost calculation for you after the first consultation.

First and foremost, the means of transport chosen has an impact on the cost of repatriation from abroad. Depending on the distance to be covered and the urgency of the request, a ground ambulance, helicopter, scheduled airliner or air ambulance can be used.

All the vehicles and aircraft we use are well-equipped for medical emergencies. In general, the more complex the requirements, the higher the costs will be for the medical repatriation.

In cooperation with countless insurance companies all over the world, we will be happy to clarify for you who will cover the costs.  

When is a medical repatriation urgently necessary?

There are many cases in which a repatriation is necessary. If the patient has had a stroke while on holiday a medical repatriation is inevitable. Especially if you are on holiday in a country that does not have the same medical standards as the UK, the stroke should not be treated there, but – after a successful medical repatriation – in the UK. But a stroke on holiday is not the only reason for a medical repatriation: complicated fractures, severe infections or torn ligaments can also necessitate a medical patient transport. A medical repatriation is not just dependent on the patient's medical symptoms, local conditions also play a role.
