Travel firms' customers will be able to access over 20,000 approved doctors in 75 countries
Ancillaries platform Hepstar to offer Air Doctor to its trade network
Travel ancillary products platform Hepstar is to start offering access to health care around the world through its partners having agreed a partnership with Air Doctor.
The tie-up will enable firms to connect travellers to local doctors though a multi-lingual, location-based app.
Air Doctor provides access to a network of over 20,000 approved doctors in 75 countries. Travellers can book clinic and home visits or phone and video consultations 24/7.
The Air Doctor App is translated to seven different languages and video consultations are available in 21 languages.
The service provides access to discounted outpatient consultation and treatment as opposed to emergency, inpatient medical services.
By partnering with Air Doctor Hepstar will offer a more streamlined subscription process for the service in the travel booking process.
Jenny Cohen Derfler, chief executive of Air Doctor, said: “We are delighted to join Hepstar’s travel ancillary network.
“This partnership is another strong indication of the growing need to support travellers around the globe with their medical needs - especially in a post-COVID world.
“While we’re already operating in 75 countries, we’re always working to expand our network and help all travelers anytime, anywhere.
“Our digital platform allows travellers to filter doctors by spoken language and speciality to find he best doctor for them.
“We’re excited at the prospect of Hepstar creating more awareness and adoption of our service.”
Brett Dyason, chief executive of Hepstar, added: “We’re able to recommend Air Doctor subscription packages appropriate for traveller needs so they have peace of mind when travelling abroad.
“Air Doctor makes medical care abroad easily accessible, connecting travellers to private doctors around the world. It will be a valuable addition to our offering to our extensive network of travel partners.”
