Do I need a visa for Athens?

No – if you’re a British citizen travelling to Athens with a valid passport, then you won’t need to apply for a visa.

Healthcare in Athens

British citizens should have their free European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) or Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC), which can be used in Athens and the rest of Greece. This will cover any necessary treatments you may receive at public healthcare centres or hospitals on your trip. However, it’s important to remember to still have travel insurance in place to be able to cover the costs of any unexpected medical treatment the EHIC/GHIC might not cover or repatriation costs.

If you have pre-existing medical conditions you must declare these before you buy your policy to ensure you’re fully covered.

Yes – all our policies come with access to our 24-hour emergency assistance team, so there will always be someone here to help you if you become ill or are injured while abroad.

If you need assistance just give our emergency medical team a call any time, day or night.
