I am planning an independent trip through these countries this winter and am certain to need an INR check in two if not all three. Failing that, does anyone know if it's possible to hire a device such as a Coaguchek? Buying a new one would really burden my small budget already overloaded by insurance as I'm 72 and have one or two problems. Dabigatran is not a solution: too risky to reverse in case of accident. Hope this forum which I think is great can help.
