Most of us go on our holidays hoping to relax and enjoy ourselves. Just occasionally, things don’t always go to plan, our health has other ideas. It may be an upset stomach, a fall by the poolside, or a nasty insect bite, we know these things happen.  When they do, all you want to do is see a doctor as soon as possible for treatment. Now, with your Columbus Direct policy it is possible to gain instant access to medical advice and treatment.

We are very pleased to announce our partnership with babylon to offer their digital health service in an app, on your smart phone or tablet. Once registered, Columbus Direct customers can get FREE access to an English speaking GP via video calls on your phone – within minutes, wherever you are in the world, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week

If you need a prescription and medication while you are away, babylon is there to help give you the best advice. There is also an extremely helpful symptom checker to help give you instant reassurance.  And if you don’t need a doctor on your holidays (and let’s hope that’s always the case, of course) then have a little extra peace-of-mind on us anyway.

Registering for your free babylon subscription is extremely quick and easy, just follow the link on your Columbus Direct welcome email and you’ll be ready to travel with confidence in no time.
