RETURN TRAVEL WARRANTY
So what happens when I return home….?
For extra peace of mind Somnio suggests you seriously contemplate a little extra cover for a very little cost. With our return travel warranty you can minimise the cost of your return travel if it becomes necessary.
Somnio wants to safeguard our clients in the unfortunate case that return travel to Bangkok or Phuket is required for revised procedures.
All surgery poses a risk whether it is a standard Breast Augmentation OR a complicated Body Lift. In some cases, after your return home, revision surgery may become necessary as a result of a medical complication or aesthetic results that require revision work.
Somnio’s team up with our partner hospitals Guarantees & Policies in Bangkok & Phuket. Both these Hospital’s have a policy in place to cover revision surgery should it be deemed necessary.
If revision surgery is required, as a result from your surgery in Thailand, the Hospital Board will offer full or partial contributions towards the cost for the revision surgery.
This revision surgery cost, and any other costs covered, will be determined by Phuket International Hospital, Dr Boonchai, Dr Thanakom or Bangpakok 9 Hospital board and sent to Somnio for client approval.
However, very rarely are flights and accommodation compensated even when the Hospital has acknowledged that corrective surgery will be required, which can leave our clients out of pocket thousands.
At Somnio, we offer our Return Travel Warranty to pay for the following travel costs for our clients:
HOTEL – Minimum 3-4 star property (Maximum stay is to be stipulated in Hospital/Surgeon Review Board offer)
MEALS – Full Breakfast Buffet
