Our daughter was in South Africa on a school exchange program and ended up in a regional hospital on an i/v drip with two infected feet and an infected knee. Medical Travel Companions Dr Matt Hooper provided my daughter and our family with extremely quick high level clinical and early intervention, support and reassurance. Our daughter was discharged and fit to fly to return home to Australia. MTC provided a travel companion as she was in a wheelchair and required assistance. Without this quick high level early intervention our daughter would not have made the original flight causing stress to all concerned. She had travel insurance however the response time was 24hr’s behind MTC’s.
