Doctor in Your Pocket
Medical insurance only covers the cost, it doesn’t help you find a doctor. TraveDoc is the free online doctor appointment scheduling service, accessible on internet, for people who need a doctor, dentist or a specialist in a new country, literally connecting doctors and patients around the world. UN statistics say that 64% of travellers experience health problems while abroad and only 16% of those seek care in a foreign country. Doctor in your pocket is a global digital health company offering travellers peace of mind when they travel internationally. The medical travel assistance is available 24/7, helping you find the nearest doctor’s office or a local doctor that can be called to your hostel. They offer access to the world’s most trusted US and EU certified doctors of 65+ specialisations who speak more than 60 languages. HI members receive up to 20% discount on Doctor in Your Pocket
