Health Travel, also known as medical travel or medical tourism, is the process of traveling abroad to obtain general medical, dental or cosmetic surgery at costs often significantly lower than those found in the U.S. health care system.
It is estimated that more than 2 million Americans have already traveled abroad for medical care. Experts predict the health travel market will explode in the next few years, with 6 million U.S. patients per year traveling abroad for health care.
Health travel is absolutely safe with a reputable company to a civilized and well developed country. We encourage everyone to do thoroughly research the available options before deciding to book medical travel abroad. When in doubt, use our community forum for advice from other health travelers. We do everything possible to provide high quality service to our customers. Hungary is part of the European Union. As such she complies with all international standards and rules.
  • Cost – treatment overseas often comes at a fraction of what it would cost in Western countries
  • Quality of service – the personalised attention medical tourists receive from overseas medical and nursing staff can be reason in itself to avoid the impersonal, numbers-driven medical system at home
  • No waiting – even for elective procedures available through the public healthcare system at home, treatment abroad can be a way of avoiding long waiting lists
  • Anonymity/privacy – many people travelling for surgery like the fact that they can recover discreetly; as far as friends, family and acquaintances are concerned, they have just been overseas for a holiday
  • Existing travel plans – if you’re already planning a trip to somewhere like Europe you can arrange a low-cost, high-quality medical or dental procedure while you’re there
Facilities and doctors overseas are able to provide healthcare at a lower cost without compromising on quality for a number of reasons. These include lower medical indemnity insurance premiums, lower labour costs coupled with a lower overall cost of living.
This depends on the individual procedure. During your initial pre-travel consultation, your surgeon will advise you about the minimum length of stay in hospital and recommended recovery time. On discharge from the hospital, you will need to report back to your surgeon before you can depart.
Patients can stay as long as they like after their treatment is complete. Many choose to travel around their destination country. At Health Travel Hungary,  your health and wellbeing is our first priority. We want to ensure that there are no complications and that you have fully recovered and fly back home safely with a positive outcome.

No. We understand that health care can be a costly issue.
