If you have a medical aid, it means that you are already making sure that you are covered in case of an emergency. When you go on holiday, it’s worth making sure that your medical aid will work for you if something out of the ordinary happens.
It’s always a good idea to take your ID document and medical aid membership card on holiday with you. Even though neither of these is vital if you are checking in at a doctor or a hospital, they do make the process a lot less painful. Also, make sure you have your medical aid’s customer service or authorisation phone number with you, so that you don’t have to think of yet another process in an emergency.
