Craig Lindley from Barnsley is back home after being struck down with a rare illness when he was in Thailand.
Craig was away with family when he fell ill and faced hospital bills of £80,000 after a complication with travel insurance.
He told Calendar he applied for insurance online, but then found out the transaction failed. His family rallied to raise the money for his medical care and transport home and he is warning prospective travellers to make sure they are properly insured before going away.
