While governments work on cutting surgical wait times, the truth is that we're all getting older and needing more medical services all the time – so waits for various procedures are not going to end any time soon.

In the meantime, some of those who have the money to get their medical needs met in other countries are doing so, finding that not only are the medical services up to snuff in places such as India and Thailand, but that staying in a five star hotel and being near a sandy beach is a very nice way to recuperate. As a medical travel consultant, your job is to find the right places with the right services for your clients and arrange a worry free trip for them.

Pros: The satisfaction of helping people get the medical treatment they need.

Cons: You will need a room suitable for meeting with clients in your home and may have to travel to meet with them face-to-face as well.

What You Need to Get Started With This Home Based Business Idea:

  • Knowledge of medical services and facilities in other countries.
  • Knowledge/skills to put together travel packages for clients.
