Fancy a holiday that effectively pays for itself?

Thousands of people have caught onto the idea of travelling abroad for medical treatment, particularly dental work.

With the high costs of private dental work in the UK and the difficulty of finding an NHS dentist accepting new patients, many people are looking further afield.

And it’s one of the best European travel tips to combine a holiday with some medical treatment.

In the case of dental work, one of the most popular destinations is the Hungarian capital of Budapest.

There are a number of companies in the city that can offer English-speaking dentists, working out of surgeries boasting the latest equipment. You can be sure of a standard of hygiene that is comparable with the UK, so there is no greater risk than getting the treatment at home.

Typically, these companies will have English language websites so you can find out all the information you need. If you have concerns or questions, you can email them or give them a call to discuss it.

It’s standard procedure that the company will meet you at the airport, take you to your hotel then pick you up at you door when you are due for treatment. They may even be able to offer you a discount on hotels they have an association with, though Budapest hotels are generally reasonable (certainly compared to London Hotels) so if you have to make your own arrangements it should not be expensive.

Your pound, when converted into Hungarian forints, will go quite far in the capital when it comes to dining out. And don’t worry that you’ll have to settle for a plate of goulash; Budapest is a cosmopolitan city and its restaurants offer a great many styles of cuisine, some that wouldn’t look out of place in some of the finest Dubai Hotels.

Because of the lower cost of dental treatment in Hungary, it’s likely that you will make a substantial saving on what you would have had to pay in the UK. Jet2, one of the low-cost airlines, fly from the UK to Budapest, making the trip even better value.

If you’re considering major dental work, including bridges and dental implants, then it’s one of the top European travel tips to book yourself a dental holiday in Budapest.
