Often we think that it will not happen to us…………..but it can and it does!
What can happen without travel insurance?
(Details provided by QBE Travel Insurance & Omega)
A male traveller was 63 years old and was travelling with his family in Eastern Europe and suffered a stroke while travelling and was admitted to hospital.
As the facilities were inadequate his family had organised for him to be air-lifted at a cost of AU$30,000 to Switzerland.
The traveller did not have travel insurance and as a result the family had to pay all the associated bills.
Wanting to get back to Australia, the man’s family contacted OMEGA in the hope they could organise a private Repatriation back to Australia.
OMEGA organised the Repatriation back to Australia however at a cost of $AU32,702. On return to Australia, the client spent time in ICU and recovered well however he did have to sell his property to cover for the repatriation, medical attention and the airlift.
