Understanding the total cost of plastic surgery abroad

People travel abroad for treatment because the cost of treatment in many countries is low. The prices in top medical tourism countries are often 20% lower than in the UK. One can save significant amount of money by going abroad for treatment. However, factor in the travelling and accommodation costs when making a comparison.

The total cost of treatment abroad includes the cost of your operation and other costs, like:

  • Airfare
  • Accommodation and meals
  • Insurance (You will have to purchase a specialist healthcare tourism insurance. The standard travel insurance does not cover treatments done abroad.)

Your cost will increase substantially if you take a companion. The same holds true if follow-up visits are required.

Reducing travelling costs

You can save a lot of money by booking your flight early. This holds true for both Eastern European countries and faraway countries like India.

Cost of living in the selected country

The cost of transport, meals, and accommodation can add up to a significant amount. Therefore it is an important factor to consider. Compare the cost of living of different countries. Add the airfare and cost of living to see which country is the most cost-effective option.
