Healthcare in Europe
UK residents should carry their European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) or Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) when travelling in the EU. This will entitle you to free, or reduced cost, medical treatment, but it’s important to still have travel insurance in place to cover any additional costs that the cards don’t cover, or to pay for repatriation back to the UK.
Please note that although Iceland, Norway, Switzerland and Lichtenstein used to accept the EHIC, post-Brexit neither the EHIC nor the GHIC will work in these non-EU countries.
It’s always important to check with your GP at least four to six weeks before you go to see if there are any necessary vaccinations needed for the destination you’re travelling to.
