Traveling is a stressful time for anyone as there is a lot to plan. Where will you be traveling to? How long are you going for? Is your Passport on a date? This can all add to a huge amount of stress and make the travel experience not as enjoyable. To help you lessen the stress and make the most out of your trip, we will be providing you with the best holiday destinations for you based on their healthcare systems.
Known as one of the best countries in the world for its healthcare system, France is the best place for you to travel. Whether you are heading to the south of France on holiday or you are heading to Disneyland Paris, the quality of care that you will get should you fall ill is one of the best out there in Europe. Though you will have to pay for this health care, any UK resident can apply for a GHIC card by filling out an online application form on ghic.co.uk. When the card arrives, you are then ready to go and use this should you need it when you are traveling.
Despite being one of the best locations for a holiday, this is also one of the best locations for the healthcare system that they have. With a private healthcare system that is so good that they are marketing themselves as a medical tourism destination, this is a country that will not only make for a great holiday but you will be able to seek medical assistance if you need it throughout the duration of your trip, regardless of who you are traveling with.
Another amazing holiday destination is Italy. With its amazing views, several amazing pieces of architecture, and several amazing lakes to visit, Italy is the perfect place for you to visit. In addition to this, Italy is another popular holiday destination that can provide you with a publicly funded healthcare system. It is important to realize, however, that the level of care that you get in Italy can depend on where in Italy you are traveling to. The healthcare system is of higher quality in the northern half of Italy such as Rome and Milan and this can differ greatly from the care in other parts of the country, therefore research is important.
The final location is great for a holiday as well as medical tourism and that is Spain. With a healthcare system similar to that in the UK, the only issues that visitors may have are that several doctors may not speak English. As a result, you may need to bring Google Translate or a traditional phrasebook to communicate the issue that you are dealing with. In addition to this, you can use the new GHIC card system here to reduce the cost of a large portion of the medication available.
With this in mind, there are several locations that you can visit when you are traveling that you can also benefit from in the case of a financial emergency. Which of these will you be visiting?
