Ons sal ongelukkig moet kanseleer en ontrek. Die volgende persoon op die waglys is dus welkom om ons plek te neem en die deposito aan ons te betaal. Skakel my op 0835805703 vir bankbesonderhede.

Willie ek dink dis 'n non refundable deposit. Die idee is om mense te kry om te "commit". :wink: Reelings moet getref word wat op getalle gebaseer word. So as jy uit trek kan dot die tes van die groep ook raak, dus die deposito.

Ek wik en weeg nog of ek sal kan gaan. Ek wens ek kan gaan. Wense nie altyd moontlik nie nê! :wink:

Gelukkig is jy verkeerd want verlede jaar het ek self iemand anders se plek oorgeneem, wat nie kon gaan nie, en aan hom uitbetaal. :D

Ek dink die antwoord lê in die kry van iemand om Willie se plek oor te neem. Dan, uit die aard van die saak, sal so iemand Willie vergoed vir die deposito. As niemand gekry kan word nie, is ek bevrees kan daar skade wees vir Willie. Ek is verstom dat niemand nog gereageer het nie. 8-[

Good day and sorry for my delay, didn't see this post earlier...
I'm the chief pilot for Okavango Air Rescue (www.okavangorescue.com) and our core business is the medevac flights, but we offer also another type of service. Basically with a small fee a person can be “cover” with us and if something happen during the trip we will pick the person from the bush with helicopter and/or PC12 and fly him/her to the nearest hospital. On board the helicopter/PC12 there is a doctor so the person will receive medical attention as soon as possible. If the person rescued doesn’t have a personal medical insurance than we will fly him/her to the nearest Botswana hospital, Maun or Francistown, and the flight will be free of charge. If the person has a medical insurance that covers medical flight we then can fly to Joburg or Windhoek and then we will ask the insurance company to cover the expenses.
Normally this is what our “patronage fee” cover but I believe that I can ask the boss to add also a 24hr telephone assistance, in this case you will have a phone number to call if something happen that is not so serious to request a medevac but you want to have a doctor available to the other end for any information, and the doctors that answer the phone are not local…don’t worry!!!
Normally of all this cost P175/person but the boss is happy to give our Jabbi group a 15% discount, and the cost is reduced to P150/person
What do you think? Is something interesting? Let me know what you think and if you have questions!
