Unless they had severe injuries, which it doesn't look like it or mentioned not sure why they even went to Saumi, there is a new hospital on Tao and plenty of clinics to stitch people up...not as if its the 1st time someone crashed a bike....the cost for a speedboat evac to Samui is 50,000bt to start with.

It’s illegal to confiscate passports which are technically property of the (here) British Government.  They should have contacted the embassy and requested new passports.  The hospital could then pursue the balance - unlikely to be paid of course.  But they have no right to withhold passports and the fact that this is their policy leaves me unsympathetic.

The couple’s insurance company would only cover some of the cost...

This is so typical for ALL insurance companies.
It's about JUST as typical to say that your motorbike had a brake failure.

Facts, details, ...

Looking at her injuries she was probably also not wearing a helmet or had proper shoes and gloves.

But who cares. FUND ME!

Shit.  Looking at the injuries to her her feet and toes is nothing.  I regularly sustain injuries like that while walking from the kitchen to the refrigerator outside to get another beer.  The legs of our chairs look like beavers chewed them.  Som Nam Na.

you read my thoughts as soon as I read it also. Maybe they had to think something up because being pissed didn't sound good so they said ' lets go with the faulty brakes, that seems to work ….  lol 

Only read the first page.

Can't be arsed with reading another 5 pages of bitter and twisted vitriol.

Do you guys ever have anything nice to say about anything?

Jesus.

Needed £6675 for the hospital. I wonder how much they just spent on their wedding? 

Most travel insurance policies state only 50% pay-out if motorcycle is involved.

Why is she still Ms Harrison? Just wondering. 

What is your point?

Christ, we've got moaners and wingers for people WITH insurance, let alone WITHOUT.

What the f##k has any wedding got to do with anything?

Best you guys go check on your glasses.

Prolly less than half empty.

Alternative idea,

Stop ripping tourists off by putting them in expensive private hospitals.


Expensive Private hospitals that overcharge foreigners!  Exactly how much is this country raking in, by overcharging foreigners in hospitals????

If the motorbike had faulty brakes, then sue the renting Company.

Did the driver of the motorbike even have a valid drivers license?
