Healthcare in Barcelona
British citizens should travel with a free European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) or Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC), which can be used in Barcelona. 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.
