Medical Travelling

MEDICAL TRAVEL COMFORT For medical escort  travel when budget permits it we always like to book our clients either on First Class or Business Class Chairs 

BEST PLACE TO SEAT It all depends on Budget & Medical Condition. However, a few extra inches can make all the difference for those needing more room. If you choose to sit in economy we would try to get the first row or the best seats on the plane . As a minimum we will book  an aisle seat. That way you can stretch out those legs. If you really need the room, pay the extra funds and sit in First Class or Business Class . This is especially true if you are flying a long distance.

CHECK AIRLINE ACCOMMODATIONS

LUGGAGE LIMITS Whether you are traveling by air, land or sea there are always restrictions on what you can all bring. It is important that you know this before you pack. REMEMBER OUR CREW NEED  TO TAKE CARE EQUIPMENT, CLIENT,MEDICATIONS AND LUGGAGE AT THE SAME TIME  CHECK: TRAVEL BAGGAGE

How to get a great price

PRICE Air Medical Escort Travel can get expensive so take the time to plan. Especially if you are going to a major destination, keep in mind that the more time we have to finalize the arrangements, the more efficient and affordable the experience will be for you and your loved one; we require at least 36-48 hours notice.

Documentation for Medical Travelling

VISA REQUIREMENTS Each country has different entry requirements. Some allow you to stay up to 90 days while others limit it to one week or two weeks. Ensure that you have understood the requirements and get started on your documentation as soon as possible. Things can get lost in the mail and workers do go on vacation. Give yourself as much time as you can.

CHECK: VISA REQUIREMENTS 

PASSPORT Ensure your passports are up to date, if you have recently changed your name you will need to ensure your passport has the most current info. Should you need to apply or renew it,  It is best to do this as early as possible. Waiting for them to come can be nerve wracking if on a tight deadline. It is also a lot more costly.

 Adult passengers (18 and over) are required to show a U.S. federal or state-issued photo ID in order to be allowed to go through the checkpoint and on to their flight.

We understand passengers occasionally arrive at the airport without an ID, due to lost items or inadvertently leaving them at home. Not having an ID, does not necessarily mean a passenger won?t be allowed to fly. If passengers are willing to provide additional information, we have other means of substantiating someone?s identity, like using publicly available databases.

Passengers who are cleared through this process may be subject to additional screening. Passengers whose identity cannot be verified by TSA may not be allowed to enter the screening checkpoint or onto an airplane.

ORGANIZE  YOUR DOCUMENTS  If you don't have one already, purchase a travel organizer that will keep all your documents in one place. Ensure you have your  passport, your travel itinerary and tickets.  or you can ask the facility to place all your documents on a ZipLoc bag

DOUBLE CHECK YOUR DOCUMENTS . It is best to not do this the day of  travel. You may have forgotten to do something and having more than a day to do it will make it feel less stressful.

Medications

MEDICAL TRAVEL Most people who have prescriptions wont forget to pack enough for their trip. However, it is always a good idea to bring a little extra. Your flight might be delayed, a storm may hit and you need to stay a while longer or theres just one more stop you decided to make. Play it safe not having what your body needs is a stress you can avoid. It is also important to buy enough vitamin C, Tylenol and Imodium. Purchasing these abroad can be quite expensive.
