Our new fertility journey partners Mediterranean Fertility Institute are offering one couple the chance to receive free egg donation or IVF treatment at their clinic in Crete.
IVF Travel came to life under the initiative of Dimitris Kavakas who after several years of consulting experience in medical travel and specifically fertility travel, wanted to offer fertility patients an affordable yet high-quality IVF programme with a refund guarantee.
The portal of ivftravel.com that is managed and run by Redia Ltd which carefully selects fertility clinics in several countries and partners with them to offer fertility patients high-quality multi-cycle refund guarantee IVF and Egg Donation programmes at affordable prices.
Partner fertility clinics are located in several countries, such as Spain, Greece, Czech Republic, Cyprus, Turkey, India and Malaysia and it is constantly expanding its partner list to include more clinics in more countries worldwide. Redia Ltd is a UK fertility consultancy and primarily serves UK patients going abroad for treatment; however, increasingly it serves patients from other countries such as the USA, Australia, Spain, Germany and the Middle East.
The refund guarantee programme gives patients the chance of having up to 3 full cycles of IVF treatment, inclusive of all frozen embryo transfers as well as all stimulation medication needed. It also includes embryo freezing and one-year storage costs. It also comes with a refund guarantee for a live birth that can be up to 100%.
The programme has certain eligibility criteria and requires certain screening tests to be provided in advance of getting accepted into the programme. On average, the acceptance rate exceeds 80%.
While there is no age restriction in Egg Donation and Embryo Adoption programmes, there are age restrictions for IVF with own egg cycles and refund guarantees can only be offered to women up to 39 years of age.
IVF Travel also offers the possibility to UK fertility patients to spread the cost of the programme over a number of months by requesting a 50% deposit and the remaining amount is paid in six monthly equal instalments free of interest.
One of our partners is the Mediterranean Fertility Institute in Greece and the two organisations join forces to provide a free IVF or Egg Donation cycle to a UK couple.
