European Health Insurance Card

The European Health Insurance Card AKA The EHIC doesn’t cost a penny!

The card will enable you to get FREE or DISCOUNTED medical care in all 27 EU countries, plus a few others.

It is estimated that over half the UK population doesn’t have a card. Some may be put off applying for a card because of the “fast track payment fee” which some companies charge, however, if you apply for the card via NHS business services authority then the card is absolutely FREE and will be valid for 5 years.

The card should never replace your travel insurance.

Good luck and remember by applying for the card using these means then the card / cost is free.
