TRAVEL INSURANCE & HOLIDAY INSURANCE





Medical insurance is a must in France. An English man whilst visiting Charente in france was suddenly taken ill during the night and an ambulance was called to where he was staying. Upon arrival they immediately took the gentlemen to Barbezieux hospital where he was examined and kept for observation as he suffered from heart problems. Several tests were carried out checking for different problems. Eventually, 2 days after admission, the problem was put down to some nuts the gentleman had eaten at dinner the night he was admitted, Upon departure from the hospital he was presented with the invoice for his stay and treatment which was almost 4000 euros. This was the cost of the ambulance the three nights stay in a surgical ward and the attendance of the specialist on three occasions during his stay in hospital.

The invoice had to be paid. Luckily the gentlemen had requested an E11 prior to leaving UK for France so he will be able to recuperate almost two thirds of the cost. Still expensive - Do not Travel without health and accident insurance it simply is not worth the risk.
