Travel Insurance & Repatriation

Repatriation is the process of returning a person home after a medical emergency or at worst case death.

These costs can be extremely high - sometimes millions of dollars.This is because you probably won't come home via standard air flights meaning a special medical emergency aircraft is brought in to manage this. Plus you may require certain support on your return home which may include one or more medical escorts such as a nurse or a doctor and special equipment such as monitors, intravenous equipment or breathing assistance.

The whole process involves lots of paperwork and documentation that needs to be organised keeping in line with local regulations. So as you can imagine it's costly and takes a lot of organising and communicating with the right people in order to make run smoothly for all involved.
