Your credit card information will be securely held for these purposes, and charges will only be applied to it if you choose to use these services.
What dining facilities are available at the hotels?
The hotels included in our packages offer a variety of dining options, including breakfast. Whether you’re looking for a fine dining experience, casual meals, or room service, you’ll find a range of choices to suit your preferences.
Can I book my own hotel?
Ideally, we recommend staying at the hotels included in our packages, as they are chosen to streamline your medical journey. This ensures a smoother operation day. However, if you have specific preferences or needs and wish to arrange your accommodation independently, it is possible. Please consult with your sales specialist to discuss this option and ensure it aligns with the overall logistics of your treatment.
Do different packages offer variations in room types, and can I bring a partner or children with me?
- In our premium package, double occupancy is included for a duration of five days.
- In the standard package, single occupancy for three days is provided.
- You are more than welcome to bring your partner, children, or additional guests along with you. If you choose to upgrade to a double room to accommodate a second person, the additional cost is 60 € for five-star hotels and 20 € for four-star hotels. We aim to make your stay as comfortable and flexible as possible to meet your specific needs.
Important Information for Hair Transplant and Dental Treatment
Before undergoing your hair transplant or dental treatment, it is essential to adhere to specific guidelines. You will receive comprehensive instructions tailored to your specific procedure from us. However, here are some general guidelines:
- No Swimming Allowed: During your hair transplant journey, it’s important to note that swimming is not permitted. It’s advisable to avoid swimming in pools or other water bodies for a specified period to ensure the best possible recovery and prevent any complications.
- Avoid Coffee on Operation Day: On the day of your hair transplant or dental procedure, please refrain from consuming coffee during breakfast. Coffee can have certain effects that may not be conducive to the operation process, so it’s best to skip it until after your procedure.
- Alcohol Consumption Prior to Procedure: To ensure the safety and effectiveness of your treatment, it’s essential to abstain from alcohol consumption for at least three days leading up to your operation day. Alcohol can interfere with the body’s response to anesthesia and other medications used during the procedure.
- Choose Shirts with Buttons or Zippers for your hair transplantation: On the operation day, wearing shirts with buttons or zippers can be particularly helpful. These types of shirts make it easier to change clothes without disturbing the treated area, especially for hair transplant patients who need to protect their newly implanted grafts.
- Liquid Washing Products Warning for hair transplant patients: On your designated washing day following the procedure, you will receive washing products in liquid form, some of which may exceed 100 ml in volume. Keep in mind that liquids over 100 ml are typically not allowed as carry-on items for your return flight. Plan accordingly and consider packing them in your checked luggage.
