Colombia Travel Logistics: Where Health Care Meets Affordability, Quality and Excellence

More and more, people all across the globe are discovering the tremendous benefits of medical tourism. It has become common knowledge that this blossoming industry very often offers a more affordable medical treatment without compromising the quality of care. Often referred to as health tourism, medical tourism is defined as the act of going overseas to obtain medical, cosmetic or dental treatment.

    Why would one consider such an option? The benefits and advantages are well worth considering. They include lower costs, making it more affordable (some have saved as much as 40 to 50 percent on many healthcare service procedures through medical tourism compared to like treatments performed in the U.S.); prompt service; much-improved flight and communication services; and, of course, tourism opportunities. Healthcare costs in developed nations have exploded. And for many, health insurance does not cover the full cost of a procedure. For others, such procedures are unavailable in their resident countries. Medical Tourism bridges these gaps by providing an effective and affordable solution. In addition, technological advancement and the overall standard of health care have rapidly improved, and international travel has become more reasonably priced and hassle-free.

    Numerous specialized travel agencies offer medical tourism as an integral part of their product and service portfolios. One such agency is Colombia Travel Logistics (CTL). Located right here in Columbia, South Carolina, this U.S.-based company provides country-to-country medical travel accommodations and services from the U.S. to Medellin, Colombia, and back; the agency’s mission is to provide its clients with an outstanding aesthetic surgical experience abroad within a culturally rich environment. CTL’s team of American and Colombian professionals, along with its associated agency enterprises, allow the agency to do just that in beautiful Medellin.
