Why is the cost of medical services cheaper in Turkey?
Although the duties paid by the government are costly in most European countries, there is less costly politics in Turkey. Thus, a company can provide more attractive rates without compromising the profits of its owner. As medical tourism is a sector that makes a significant contribution to the economy as a whole, it is stimulated by the local government. That is why quality levels are growing year after year and prices remain very low – a citizen from Asia, America, Europe, or Middle East who travels Turkey and takes care of his or her health will save up to 50% of his or her expenses.
There are many many healthcare facilities and organizations available that will provide treatment opportunities with affordable prices and quality service to foreigners. In the choice process, the relevant factors are a partnership with hotels, support during the stay, including transfers and orientation for general local details, and good review by past customers (regarding hospitality and customer assistance).
