In this podcast episode, Allen speaks with Ben Wilson, co-founder of Medical Travel Companions (MTC).
What is Medical Travel Companions?
Medical Travel Companions is a unique service that assists people with their travel needs from a local domestic or complex international journey. There are a large number of individuals or families who choose not to travel due to a variety of reasons. MTC can remove many of the barriers that will allow many to realise their travel dreams.
MTC travel companions are experienced paramedics, nurses, or nannies, that have undergone a rigorous selection process. They have a range of knowledge including: families with elderly parents, young children, people with a mental health issue, disability, or simply people who just need reassurance or help on a holiday or in transit.
MTC companions are available on a global basis.
Key Benefits of Using Medical Travel Companions
Travellers can engage MTC services for travel on all forms of travel including, tours, cruises, flights, private vacations, or concierge transport services for local transportation requirements.
MTC companions are available to help you to your desired destination or even to stay with you for the duration of the entire trip. Medical Travel Companions is flexible and can tailor a solution to suit your specific needs.
MTC companions provide caring assistance to travellers such as:
- Insurance recovery
- Patient discharge
